Ongoing discussion at the Steve Hoffman Music Forum (LINK)       Album Index


January 6, 1956 -

You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me / I Thought About You /

You Make Me Feel So Young / Memories of You

Top Choice:

The Capitol Years CD (reused in the Japanese CD release of Songs for Swingin’ Lovers)

Not as good:

The Rare Sinatra LP - muffled quality overall

The Rare Sinatra CD - odd, tinny, pinched tone; left-heavy


Like Never Before LP - fake stereo

Ultimate Sinatra - severely compressed


•For those who wish to “home brew” a 16-track CD of Songs for Swingin’ Lovers, the sonics on the The Capitol Years track are every bit as enjoyable as the other 15 tracks as presented in the 2014 Mobile Fidelity version.  This particular track is beautifully recorded by John Palladino and well-mastered by the team of Ron Furmanek and Larry Walsh.
