Notes By Sinatra

Working with Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra was one of the happiest times of my life. It's hard to believe that over half a century has passed since these titles were recorded. I still enjoy listening to them and am delighted that the RCA Records label has assembled this collection.

"I had the pleasure of hearing some of the songs after they were restored and am thrilled at how they've turned out – this certainly is the best-ever sounding release of Tommy Dorsey/Frank Sinatra repertoire.

"The first four discs/cassettes run chronologically through the recordings I made with Tommy beginning with our first studio date on February 1st 1940 and ending with 'Light A Candle In The Chapel' on July 2nd 1942. They are rounded out with half a dozen rare and alternate takes, and the four songs I cut with Axel Stordahl in January 1942.

"The fifth disc/cassette features 'live' material and is a collector's dream! Most of the songs are previously unreleased and many of them were contest winners on NR Tablets' 'Fame And Fortune' shows. RCA has sequenced this disc to simulate the feel of an actual radio broadcast, complete with the show's opening theme and my farewell speech to Tommy and the Orchestra

"To produce a boxed set of this size is a mammoth undertaking. So many people gave their time and effort to produce what you now hold in your hands. This is a project with which I am proud to be associated. Enjoy.

"Frank Sinatra
