      Is this a stereo or mono pressing? I'm guessing Stereo with the year being 1974, but can't tell based on jacket & labels?

        I'm happy to have an original UK mono pressing but the mastering quality got me Googling. I happened upon a very detailed website comparing pressings and this one was described as 'dull'. I wouldn't go that far. It sounds like the cut was done very cautiously, that's all. There's more compression than usual but it makes sense because this was a more brass-heavy album than the others had been.
        During 'Alabama' I can hear the engineer actually take the whole mix down a notch after Frank's hit a loud high note. Not compression cos it doesn't come back again! Also....there seems to be more 'air' between the orchestra and the microphones than other recordings. Again it makes sense given there's more brassy punch to the orchestrations than usual.
        So I wouldn't call it 'dull', just someone in 1957 playing safe with the meters!!

        I actually really like this 'dull' one if that's the word (which it isn't!). To me, it's warm and unified. Makes for a relaxing listen. I prefer the 'ballad' Frank rather than the 'swinging' one, so having the brass rounded off a little suits me.

        Just a little bout the music, Nelson Riddle's orchestra as usual is second to none. I love the way Nelson picks up the tempo markedly mid-way through 'You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To'...he does it halfway through 'From This Moment On' too. Just enough for it not to require another take. It's palpable though. Great use of the orchestra and gives the recording a live spontaneity.

        I haven't mentioned Frank's singing yet.
        You know how good he is!

          I’m new to vinyl, I have a decent system, so take my opinion FWIW, but I thought this sounded really good. Crisp sound, nice highs and lows. A little noise on side 2, not much, but I didn’t give it more than a pass with the anti-static brush.

              The compact disc release, marked as 'unknown' above was 1991, at least in Australia. The date is stamped on the label.
              Sinatra was a great singer, but the Nelson Riddle sound makes it superb!

                  The back of my album cover has the songs very out of order.
