I don't seem to mention this much online, for some reason, but I've been a HUGE Frank Sinatra fan since I was 13 years old. He and Audrey Hepburn were the two people who triggered my larger fascination with old Hollywood & vintage/classic things in general. Most of my family would probably say I was obsessed (when you can riddle off facts about someone like their birth weight I think that may be an accurate description) and until quite recently he was pretty much the only singer I'd listen to.
I'm proud to say I have every CD that's been released so far (with the sad exception being the new live releases, which I haven't scrimped & saved enough for yet) so I put together a little playlist that hopefully has some songs you haven't heard before! Quite a few were bonus tracks on the 20-CD Reprise Collection box set and, to my knowledge, haven't been released anywhere else. I hope you enjoy!!
ps. Each year on Frank Sinatra's birthday, I watch a double feature and a concert -- two of his films & one of his live concerts -- and make pasta with his signature sauce recipe. If you're interested in snatching the recipe for yourself and honoring Sinatra spaghetti-style tonight, here's the link to my post from last year :)
