Release Date: 25 Feb 2013

Great Songs From Great Britain is something of a unique album, being the only album Frank Sinatra recorded outside of the United states. The album was recorded at the CTS studio in London over the course of three evenings in June 1962, and thus features not only songs written by British composers but performances by British musicians as well. The album was for many years only available in the UK, not being made available in the US for more than thirty years after it has been released in the UK, although the reasons for this oversight have never been made public. If there is such a thing as a typical Frank Sinatra album, then this would fall neatly into the category; exceptional songs, perfect musical accompaniment (and a special mention for the arrangements and conducting of Robert Farnon), all perfectly sung by Ol’ Blue Eyes. It hit the mark in the UK, making #12 on the album chart.
