Capitol Records Concept Albums: Frank Sinatra
4.6 out of 5 stars with 28 reviews
Frank says '' I adore making records, I'd rather do that than almost anything else. You can never do anything in life quite on your own- you don't live on your own little island.

4.7 out of 5 stars with 18 reviews
Used CD John McGlinn's sprawling, monumental three-CD set is about all the Show Boat any listener could ever ask for.

Holiday recorded for Decca between 1944 and 1950, a period in which she was at the heights of both her popularity and her vocal powers. The music is less jazz-oriented in its backing than were the
The Patsy Cline Collection
4.7 out of 5 stars with 42 reviews
The Country Music Foundation offers 104 songs--more than four hours of music--even though Patsy Cline died at 30 after less than a decade of recording. Given the wavering quality of her later string-laden work, four CDs might be excessive, but this set comprehensively follows Cline from upstart country boomer to pop diva. She could take charge of a song from day one, as the two 1954 radio transcriptions prove. On her vibrant late-1950s work, she moves from honky-tonk and rockabilly to soft
