Frank Sinatra’s intimate 1958 opus, Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely, has been newly mixed in stereo for this expanded 60th Anniversary Edition.
Only The Lonely was recorded as both a mono and stereo presentation, explains Larry Walsh in his notes for the 60th Anniversary Edition. “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.”
For Only The Lonely, Sinatra recorded evening sessions at Capitol Studios in May and June 1958, joined by an orchestra and his frequent collaborator, conductor and arranger Nelson Riddle. Sinatra recalled of the sessions: “I like recording late at night. The later the better. My voice was not made for daytime use.”
Frank Sinatra delves deeply into love, pain, and loss across the album’s songs of heartbreak and yearning, including ‘One For My Baby (And One More For The Road),’ ‘Angel Eyes’ and ‘Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out To Dry.’
