This Is Sinatra! is an album by Frank Sinatra, released in 1956. Released as part of Capitol's "This Is" series, This Is Sinatra! features essentials like "I've Got the World On A String," "Young At Heart," and "Love And Marriage." This Is Sinatra! is Sinatra's first collection of singles and B-sides.
On this album is Learnin' the Blues, the rhythmic and torchy lesson Frank taught willing millions via juke boxes, record stores, and disc jockeys. From the big television spectacular "Our Town," in which he starred, comes Love and Marriage, a bright and perky tune with a turn-of-the century flavor. And there's the jaunty, modern mood of Love Is the Tender Trap, title song from one of Frank's motion-picture successes. Here, too, are such romantic hits as the lovely Young-at-Heart, and Three Coins in the Fountain, the Academy-Award-winning song that Sinatra performed in the film of the same name.
In all these selections, Frank shows the remarkable versatility that has made him a fabulous star straight across the entertainment scene...the versatility that makes every song by Sinatra a warm experience for anyone, anywhere.
"This first collection of Sinatra's singles and B-sides with Nelson Riddle is also the best one." -Nick Dedina, allmusic.com
