If you’re looking for a little romantic music for Valentine’s Day, look no further than this great collection of love songs by ‘Ol Blue Eyes. This disc is compiled from a number of classic albums and recording sessions that Sinatra did for Capitol Records in 50’s and early 60’s, before forming his own label, Reprise Records. Sinatra’s voice was never better and the great arrangements by Nelson Riddle make this a fantastic showcase for the Great American Songbook, comparable only to the Songbook recordings by Ella Fitzgerald. (Buy it here.)
