The Romance Of Frank Sinatra Goes Digital With Rarities Volume 2

Published on February 08, 2021

A collection of tracks from one of popular culture’s most romantic singers goes digital today with the release of Frank Sinatra: Reprise Rarities Volume 2 from Frank Sinatra Enterprises and UMe. Featuring 13 Reprise tracks, many making their digital debut, the collection follows Volume 1 released last month in honor of Frank Sinatra’s birthday and celebrating the 60th anniversary of “The Chairman of the Board” founding Reprise Records. Both are now available via all digital streaming platforms: Frank Sinatra: Rarities Volume 2, HERE; Frank Sinatra: Rarities Volume 1, HERE.

Hailed by The New York Times for an “extraordinary voice [that] elevated popular song into an art,” Sinatra realized a long-time dream by forming his own record label, Reprise, in 1960. At the time Sinatra’s business model was highly innovative in the recording industry; the very first of its kind, he pioneered the concept of having artists create and control their recordings.

“Untrammeled, unfettered, unconfined” is how the early advertisements described Sinatra on Reprise.

Throughout the years artists including Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Bing Crosby, Nancy Sinatra, Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, Green Day and Michael Bublé among others have recorded albums for Reprise.

Additional volumes of Frank Sinatra: Reprise Rarities will continue to be released in 2021. Siriusly Sinatra (SiriusXM Ch. 71) will also air part two of an exclusive ‘Sinatra: Reprise Rarities’ special in February.
