Frank was back on top after this 1966 LP hit #1 and snagged four Grammys. Somehow, this has been out of print for over 20 years; its long-awaited reissue adds live-in-Tokyo versions of Strangers in the Night and All or Nothing at All and a Yes Sir, That's My Baby alternate take to the original album versions plus another classic hit, Summer Wind , and more!
Although Frank Sinatra had often expressed dislike for the smash title hit on this 1966 album, it is best known for providing some of the last tracks that the singer and his legendary arranger, Nelson Riddle, produced together.

'Strangers' was a huge Sinatra hit and the kind of material he disliked, but most of the songs here are much more substantial than 'Strangers' or the Petula Clark hit 'Downtown'... Read morePublished on Dec 16 1999 by Jon Warshawsky
The title track (and 'Downtown'!) are so '60s that it is easy to overlook some really good songs here, including a remake of 'All or Nothing at All' that is very fun and not bad... Read morePublished on Oct. 2 1999 by Jon Warshawsky
