Frank Sinatra / Only The Lonely 60th anniversary deluxe edition

2CD or 2LP vinyl • 2018 stereo mix • Two unreleased tracks • Original mono mix


We don’t get too many 60th anniversary editions around these parts, but Universal Music are about to celebrate Frank Sinatra‘s 1958 album, Only The Lonely, with just such an edition.

Only The Lonely was a ‘mood’ album and this collection of torch songs followed in a similar vein to In the Wee Small Hours (1955) and Where Are You? (1957). If features songs like ‘One For My Baby (And One More For The Road’, ‘Angel Eyes’ and ‘Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out To Dry’.

The new 60th anniversary edition is reissued across various formats. The two-CD edition features the original 1958 mono mix and a brand new 2018 stereo mix by Larry Walsh. ‘Only The Lonely’ was recorded as both a mono and stereo presentation,” explains Larry Walsh in the sleeve notes for this release. “The mono was the focus as that was the chief format of the day. The stereo was recorded with two microphones suspended high over the studio orchestra. Frank Sinatra’s voice was recorded onto a third track. With the stereo recording being mid-side decoded, the depth of the studio is revealed.”

Four bonus tracks from the mono session recordings are also featured in the double-CD package, including studio takes making their release debuts: ‘Angel Eyes’ (alternate session takes – May 5, 1958) and ‘Lush Life’ (session takes – May 29, 1958).

The 2LP vinyl edition features just the new stereo mix over four sides of vinyl and the same audio is including in a one-CD edition. The new edition’s audio was mastered by Ron McMaster at Capitol Studios.

Only The Lonely 60th anniversary edition will be released on 19 October 2018.
