Product Description

Amazon.ca

A 20-track collection from the Reprise years that tries to cover too much ground. Very Good Years sweeps from the early 1960s to 1979's "New York New York," focusing on the most obvious Sinatra standards. The watchword here isn't art but populism. That's not a problem, really--but it means that serious fans (or those aspiring to be) will be better served elsewhere. It would be a fine introduction for the casual music lover, but so would any decent collection. For a compact Reprise-era sampler, try either this one or something from the Greatest Hits series. --Gavin McNett

5.0 out of 5 stars My First CD Ever July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
I dare anybody to name a singer as timeless as Frank Sinatra. As much as I love the Beatles, The Beach Boys, Elton John, The Who, The Four Tops, The Four Seasons, Barry Manilow and many more, their legacy can't hold a candle to Sinatra.
The 1990 cd "The Reprise Collection" holds a special place in my heart. It was the first cd I ever heard. In fact, I played it so much I had to buy 4 copies because I wore it out. There's only a few cds you can say that about.
Every classic Sinatra recorded on Reprise is here. Whether you enjoy "Fly Me To The Moon", "My Way", "Strangers In The Night", "New York, New York" or "That's Life", it's hard to be disappoinetd by the song selection. There isn't a lot of rare stuff here. Thre's a selection of previously released but relatively unknown songs here, such as his haunting renditon of "Send In The Clown" or a latterday recording of his 1940s' hit "Nancy (With The Laughing Face)".
Aside from the number 1 hit Nancy Sinatra duet "Something Stupid", this set leaves nothing out. I sugest this, as well as "The Main Event" and "Sinatra 80: Live In Concert".

5.0 out of 5 stars My Kind Of Cd June 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the last 13 years, I have owned countless Frank Sinatra cds, videos, books and dvds. But out of the all the merchandise I own, 1990's "Sinatra Reprise: The Very Good Years" is my favorite. It holds a lot of emotional value for me as well. It was the first Sinatra cd I ever owned. As a matter of fact, I had purchase at least 3 additional copies of the cd because the first one got worn out because I played it so much.
This cd has all the good stuff on here. There's nothing really rare on here, though "The Last Dance" and his 1961 recording of "Night And Day" (a song he recorded several time between 1940 and 1977, the year he released the disco version) remain underrated gems in the vast Sinatra catalogue. But songs like "The Way You Look Tonight", "Luck Be A Lady", "Fly Me To The Moon", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Strangers In The Night", "That's Life", "The Summer Wind", "My Way" and "Theme From New York, New York" have become firmly engraved as American classics. Granted, a few well - known songs from this period -"Cycles" and the smash duet "Somethin' Stupid" with Nancy Sinatra - are missing. But still, it's a great collection of the most timeless music in pop history, made that way by the most timeless singer who ever lived.

5.0 out of 5 stars This turned me into a Sinatra fan Sept. 23 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I bought this three-disc collection in 1991, I was not a Frank Sinatra fan. I much preferred Bing Crosby in style and substance and just tossed off Sinatra contemptuously. Boy, was I wrong and this collection single-handedly turned me into a Sinatraphile. Now I have over 100 of his CD's. If you don't know him or haven't listened to him seriously, you must buy this record, it will change your life.
Prior to buying this CD, my only listening experience with Frank were a half dozen 45's of "New York, New York," "Strangers in the Night" and a few of his other hits from later years. This CD introduced me into the real Sinatra, not the Top 40 Frank.
No one has ever phrased a lyric like his man. No one. You feel his pain, his pathos, his happiness, his despair and his loneliness. It is a completely joyous experience to listen to this man sing. Others had greater range or greater voices. None had the inimitable gift that Frank Sinatra possessed and that was allowing you to understand a lyric and feel it deep down in your soul. There is only one Sinatra and this collection epitomizes his glory years. Others extol the Capitol years and I would quibble that his voice was a greater, more piercing instrument in the 50's. But for my money, the Reprise years are incomparable. The pathos, the pain, the rawness and the experience are all rolled together in Frank's voice. This is an essential record for anyone who appreciates popular music.

Here are 20 songs from Frank's first 20 years on his own label, arranged as a one-disc lure to get fans to buy a four-CD retrospective. If you can only afford one Frankie CD, it isn't a bad choice. However, Sinatra is not just "The Voice". He is an era, or several eras. He is several styles and moods, and works best when the whole CD is in the same mood. His "Songs for Swingin' Lovers" is just one of many delightful, lively records he made. His "In the Wee Small Hours" is one of several explorations of romantic despair he created over the decades. I think those two represent his extremes best, and should be in everyone's collection. This CD is mostly light-hearted, but mixes in six serious ballads. Frank recorded so many great American pop songs, some several times for Columbia, then Capitol, then Reprise. No person charged with picking 20 out of the 81 selections in the Reprise box set could please everyone. I'm sure I would probably change half of these if I had the job. That said, nothing on here is "bad." I like "Night and Day" and "The Way You Look Tonight" and "I've Got You Under My Skin" the best. Less interesting to me are "The Last Dance" and "Luck Be a Lady" and "My Kind of Town" and "The Best is Yet to Come" and "That's Life" and "My Way". My advice in building a Sinatra CD collection is to invest the time to scan ALL available CD's via Amazon.com, and read at least 10 reviews of each item. Don't rely on compilations and be a slave to the tastes of strangers in the night. Decide if you want your Frank to be sad, or joyful, or sassy or wise. He's got original product, especially from 1955 on Capitol to about 1975 on Reprise, which will suit all moods and tastes.
