Swing Easy - Frank Sinatra


Get Happy

Swing Easy
With Frank Sinatra
Orchestra Conducted by Nelson Riddle
Capitol Records H529 (10-inch LP)

From Billboard - August 7, 1954: Frank Sinatra could have another winner with this sparkling new set. Unlike his last album, which contained smooth, pretty love songs, this new album features a group of uptempo standards played in breezy fashion by the Nelson Riddle crew. The "comeback kid" sings them with all the personality and feeling he can project, and that's saying a lot. He socks them over as tho he means every word, and sells them with all the old-time Sinatra charm. He's sure to re-charm his many old fans, and gain a lot of new ones with this release. "Just One Of Those Things," "Sunday," "Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams," and "All Of Me," and the others are handed the fine Sinatra treatment here. Dealers should make out well with this set from now thru the fall.

Just One Of Those Things
I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter
Warp Your Troubles In Dreams
Taking A Chance On Love
Jeepers Creepers
Get Happy
All Of Me
