Additional information about this Frank Sinatra vinyl art.
Frank Sinatra – The Artist
Francis Albert Sinatra (1915 – 1998) was an American singer, actor and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide. A perfectionist, renowned for his dress sense and performing presence, he always insisted on recording live with his band. His bright blue eyes earned him the popular nickname “Ol’ Blue Eyes”. Sinatra led a colourful personal life, and was often involved in turbulent affairs with women. Sinatra began his musical career in the swing era with bandleaders Harry James and Tommy Dorsey. Sinatra found success as a solo artist after he signed with Columbia Records in 1943. Sinatra left Capitol in 1960 to start his own record label, Reprise Records, and released a string of successful albums. But by the early 1950s his professional career had stalled and he turned to Las Vegas, where he became one of its best known residency performers as part of the Rat Pack. His career was reborn in 1953 with the success of his film, From Here to Eternity. Sinatra retired for the first time in 1971, but came out of retirement two years later. He recorded several albums and resumed performing at Caesars Palace, and released “New York, New York” in 1980. Using his Las Vegas shows as a home base, he toured both within the United States and internationally until shortly before his death in 1998.

It was a single from Frank Sinatras fourteenth studio album, Come Fly with Me. Come Fly with Me was designed as a musical trip around the world. Though recorded simultaneously in true stereo alongside a distinct mono mix, “Come Fly with Me” was released to record stores in 1958 in monaural only, a standard practice by Capitol records at the time.
