    Note - Videos chosen for this thread are now unavailable for about 99% of these selections as the curator of these songs (MusicProfessor78) has his account deleted at YouTube due to copyright infringement violations.

    "The YouTube account associated with these videos has been terminated due to multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement" which essentially makes this a dead thread and will thus no longer be maintained.

    Thanks for the views!

    Cool thread! Like everybody I've been familiar with all four artists since I was a kid as they are all household names. I've probably purchased at least four thousand records in my life and never once considered buying one of theirs. I'm a child of the 70s so that foursome are a bunch of old timers. Sinatra and Crosby are the great singers of the four. I have no interest in Bennett or Martin. And for some strange reason I got the urge last week to buy some Sinatra material. I picked the Capitol Years 3 CD set and it's a beauty! I love it! It inspired me to purchase the Best Of The Columbia Years, and the Reprise Collection and I look forward to receiving them next week.

    Thank you for the kind words - they are greatly appreciated!

    I was only about three-quarters through the charts for the four when the source that I was using had his account terminated and with that about 150 of the 160 songs or so simply disappeared.

    I may try to recreate the thread using alternate recording sources but it may be rather difficult.

    Sinatra is by far my favourite and I genuinely hope that you'll enjoy the "Best of the Columbia Years" which is a distillation of the original 12 disc set which came out in 1993 - it's a right beauty.

    And this will make for a nice pairing with your Capitol years set - a great many of which never made it onto the Capitol albums.

    I think that you'll enjoy these also which almost but not quite represents the recordings that Sinatra did with Tommy Dorsey -

    Yeah, Sinatra is the only one of the four I can really listen to. I'm not too keen on the boisterous brassy numbers that smack of Vegas, but Sinatra is great on the ballads and the high caliber material of the American songbook. I like it when he sings the blues as well. Normally I would listen to hardcore jazz vocalists, but I can listen to some of the better 50s era pop singers that sang good material. Rosemary Clooney, and Peggy Lee. For the guys other than Sinatra, I'm not too keen on the tin pan alley pop singers. I go for the jazz cats like Jon Hendricks, Eddie Jefferson, and my home town hero Mark Murphy.

    I have this on CD, really. Winter Wonderland knocks me out. But I'm not going to play it now...



    Love to see re-runs of the Dean Martin Show whenever I can...

    Give a listen to the albums Tony Bennett cut with Bill Evans (unless you don't care for Bill Evans).

    As for Sinatra on Capitol, I bought the three disc set when it was released. It got high marks for sound quality. I'm not sure if it's been remastered (for better or worse). I must say that this is a case where (for Sinatra fans at least) the MoFi discs are worth every penny. I listened to my dad's original LPs as a child. When I grew up, I bought several of the discs, but the magic of his voice seemed lost - until I heard the Mobile Fidelity masterings.

    Crosby has a great voice, but weaker material and arrangements. I recall enjoying Bing with a Beat.

    I have no recordings of Dean Martin.

    I bought a second hand copy of the 1990 Capitol set for under 2 dollars. It sounds good to me. I don't have the money to buy expensive audiophile editions. I don't doubt that a bit of the magic was lost, and that's due to the noise reduction technology. There are lots of Sinatra threads at the Hoffman forum for researching the best sounding editions of each release. I do love Bill Evans and I have quite a few albums, but not the Bennett stuff. Will give it a listen on YouTube.
