Chronology
Previous

The Concert Sinatra is a 1963 studio album by Frank Sinatra released under Sinatra's Reprise label. The album is Sinatra's thirty-eighth studio album.

History Edit

Frank Sinatra recorded The Concert Sinatra alongside Nelson Riddle and his orchestra. The Concert Sinatra's name refers to Riddle's orchestra, which for the recording used many musicians.

The album has been recognized as the point in which Sinatra's voice was at its peak. Nelson Riddle allegedly claimed this to be his favorite work with Reprise.

2012 CD controversy Edit

In 2012, The Concert Sinatra was reissued on compact disc under Concord Records. The only issue with the CD was the sound quality of the album was remixed and changed around. Charles Pignore, the producer of the CD release, claimed that the new release of the album gives a "you are there" feeling, however, the result of this mix is up to the listener of the album.

Concord's disc of the record features the original films that were located and restored for the production of this release.
