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. 

Witchcraft – The Song

‘Witchcraft’ is a popular song from 1957 composed by Cy Coleman with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh. Frank Sinatra recorded “Witchcraft” three times in a studio setting. The first recording was in 1957, for his single release, and was later released on his compilation album All the Way (1961). Sinatra re-recorded “Witchcraft” for 1963’s Sinatra’s Sinatra, and finally recorded it as a duet with Anita Baker for Duets (1993). “Witchcraft” has been recorded by many other artists, including Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, , Bill Evans, Bing Crosby, Joe Malone, Siouxsie Sioux and The Creatures and The Cure.

The Witch Hat – The Shape

This record has been cut into a tall conical witch hat as worn by witches. The origins of the witch hat as displayed today are disputed but this style of hat has long been associated with black magic, Satan-worship and with women working in an occult domain, and with witchcraft.
