Gold Album: December 12, 1969

For The Record

Produced by Don Costa. Arranged by Don Costa. This, in my opinion, is the closest Don and Dad came to capturing the sound of the day. I would have chosen some different songs, but others, 'Little Green Apples,' 'By the Time I Get to Phoenix,' and especially the title song are so nice. ('Wait By the Fire,' which is listed on the front cover, does not appear in the album.) 'Cycles,' the song, was rerecorded in New York and I had the great pleasure of 'producing' it at my dad's request, so that 'Don can be in the room with me.' What an honor. Of course I had by then proven myself by selling a lot of records of my own. But the fact that Dad trusted me–that meant more than my gold records.

From Hal Halverstadt's notes: 'Like the great American Buffalo, the Sinatra brand of recording is diminishing. Times were when [you] could be turned on by the spontaneous combustion of a singer and band grooving together. Now, more often than not, the scene is four or five young men and a weary engineer valiantly battling their eight and twelve track equipment. Laying down instrumental tracks, then vocals, combining them, perhaps adding horns, maybe deleting strings, mixing, re-mixing, sometimes coming back only to decide to start from scratch. All of which can result in some earthshaking music. But what's even more special, to the spectator, the speed, utter professionalism, finesse, and genuine excitement of a Sinatra session . . .'

From Nancy Sinatra's Book: Frank Sinatra: My Father
