Frank Sinatra - A Swingin’ Affair!

Reviewed in 2015


A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This is a very nice looking original Capitol Grey/Black Label LP. As for sonics, the record starts off a little problematically but things really start cookin’ by track two and the sound becomes sweet and warm. By the way this Capitol Label was only used from 1956 until 1957. This record plays Mint Minus Minus about as quiet as any early Capitol pressing you're likely to ever hear.

The record was number one in the UK for 7 straight weeks!

AMG Review

In some ways, A Swingin' Affair! is "Songs for Swingin' Lovers!, Pt. 2," following the same formula of Sinatra's hit album of the previous year. Beneath the surface, there are enough variations on A Swingin' Affair! to make it a distinctive, and equally enjoyable listen. The most noticeable difference between the two records is their basic approach. Where Songs for Swingin' Lovers! swung hard but managed to stay rather light, A Swingin' Affair! is a forceful, brassy album — it exudes a self-assured, confident aura. It is a hard, jazzy album. However, the attack is more brash.
