Exactly Peter - that's the setting, and as the setting is timeless, so becomes the album. And it was also Nelson who did the charts on this marvelous chestnut - and the Slatkins left there mark on the poignant violins. What a most beautiful album.
It was re-released on CD in January 2002 by Capitol as part of the "Entertainer Of The Century" series, so it shouldn't be too hard to find these days. Over here, most stores carry it.
PS: Just to be sure - the title song of this album and the song also titled "Close To You" that Sinatra recorded in 1970 (as released on Reprise "Sinatra & Company") are DIFFERENT songs.
The one heard on the Capitol album, Sinatra had already sung in the early 40s.
