Frank Sinatra

Real Name:
Francis Albert Sinatra
Profile:
US singer and actor with Italian origins.
Born 12 December 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey, USA.
Died 14 May 1998 in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Nicknamed "The Voice," "Ol' Blue Eyes," "The Chairman Of The Board," and "Frankie Boy." Beginning his musical career in the swing era with Harry James (2) and Tommy Dorsey, Sinatra became a solo artist with great success after signing with Columbia Records in March 1943; he stayed with Columbia until he got dropped by the label in June '52. Sinatra signed a seven-year recording contract with Capitol Records on March 13, 1953, and released several critically lauded albums while with Capitol. Sinatra left Capitol to found his own record label in 1960, Reprise Records, toured internationally, and fraternized with the Rat Pack and President John F. Kennedy in the early 1960s.

Sinatra had three children, Nancy Sinatra (singer, artist), Frank Sinatra Jr. (musician), and Tina Sinatra (TV producer), all with his first wife, Nancy Barbato (married 1939 to 1951). He was married three more times, to actresses Ava Gardner (1951 to 1957) and Mia Farrow (1966 to 1968), and finally to model/showgirl Barbara Marx (married 1976), to whom he was still married at his death.

Great singer. Gone back in 1998 but alive in his songs till the end of time.

Frank Sinatra was with Columbia Records first, NOT capitol until the early 1950's! Article needs to be corrected with this information. He went from Columbia to Capitol & then started his own label, Reprise.

Ian Penman wrote a great article on Frank Sinatra for the London Review of Books, titled "Swoonatra". It also appears in his essay collection "It Gets Me Home, This Curving Track", which I would recommend to any music enthusiast.

I have 'Frank Sinatra Sings Irving Berlin - Capitol EAP 20422) which is not listed here. Track listing: 1. How Deep Is The Ocean, 2. Always, 3. Cheek To Cheek, 4. White Christmas. I am guessing from the serial number it was released in 1961 Can anyone shed any light on it?

I have 2 copies of Frank Sinatra's Greatest hits. Both Canadian releases. Cover is same on both. Shows FS 1025. Labels are different and one shows FS 1025Q while the other shows FS 1025. Are these seperate releases and should they be listed as such?
