Chronology

Sinatra Sings Days of Wine and Roses, Moon River, and Other Academy Award Winners, or simply, Academy Award Winners is Frank Sinatra's fortieth studio album. Arranged by Nelson Riddle, Academy Award Winners was released under Reprise Records in 1964.

The album sports some of Sinatra's famous covers of songs such as "Moon River", "All the Way", and "The Way You Look Tonight".
