Frank Sinatra: The Voice of Frank Sinatra The Voice was originally recorded in 1945 with a chamber orchestra (plus contributions from another Columbia noteworthy, vocal product guru Mitch Miller). This reissue supplements the album’s eight original tunes with ten bonus tracks, six of which are rare alternate takes, sending a picture postcard from a long-ago musical era.

This gentlemanly version of “Try a Little Tenderness” will come as a revelation to younger generations raised on Otis Redding’s barn-burning rip through the tune. The same thing for Sinatra fans who may only be familiar with the elegiac version of “It Never Entered My Mind” that appears in “The Gal Who Got Away” medley on Everything Happens To Me, and never heard this earlier, less heartbroken and heartbreaking, version.

Unlike Sings Cole Porter or Sings Gershwin, each of which will not just appeal to fans of Sinatra but to fans of these composers, The Voice is most likely best left to Sinatra completists and fans of pre-rock & roll pop music.
