Ten years before the Beatles were getting credit for making the LP more than just a collection of album fillers to sit next to the 45 singles, Frank Sinatra was mastering te Long Playing Album with concept collections on Capital Records. Ironically, it was Capital who were the american label for the Beatles in the 1960's (EMI being the primary label in England). In the Wee Small Hours is not only my favorite studio, non best of, cd, It maybe the greatest pop music album ever. Sinatra also recorded masters such as Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely and September of my Years. Yes, The Beatles, The Who, and Springsteen created some all time great studio albums. However, this is pure magic. The mood set by Frank's voice as an instrument in it's own right, and the rapture of Nelson Riddle's conducting places this as one of the most artistic moments in any ones carrer.
