Career Spanning Frank Sinatra Collection Spans Entire Career

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Frank Sinatra, the Sinatra estate will release a brand new compilation that, for the first time, will include tracks from the singer’s career in the 40’s on Columbia Records, the 50’s on Capitol and the rest of his career on his own Reprise.

Ultimate Sinatra, out April 21, will come in a number of different formats:

Single CD with 25 tracks
Digital Download with 26 tracks
Vinyl 2-LP set with 24 tracks
4-CD set with 101 tracks
Digital Download with 101 tracks

Ultimate Sinatra’s single-disc CD contains 25 recordings representing a cross-section of Sinatra’s unparalleled recording career. Led by All Or Nothing At All and closed with a previously unreleased alternate version of Just In Time, the collection is stacked with standouts, including I’ll Never Smile Again (1940), I’ve Got The World On A String (1953), In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning (1955), I’ve Got You Under My Skin (1956), Come Fly With Me (1957), The Way You Look Tonight (1964), Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) (1964), Strangers In The Night (1966), My Way (1968), and Theme From New York, New York (1979), among many more. The standard digital edition adds a 26th track, the boisterous Chicago.

Ultimate Sinatra’s 4-CD and digital deluxe edition boasts 100 tracks celebrating 100 years (plus a never before released bonus track), including many more luminous recordings that reinforce Sinatra’s well-deserved moniker, The Voice. The chronological collection dives deeper into Sinatra’s musical world of iconic recordings, before closing with a previously unreleased rehearsal version of The Surrey With The Fringe On Top, recorded in 1979. The deluxe edition also features an 80-page booklet with a new essay by Sinatra historian and author Charles Pignone, as well as rare photos and quotes from Frank Sinatra and his children, Nancy, Tina and Frank Jr., as well as Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Quincy Jones, and others.
