Offered for sale is a still sealed original U.S. mono pressing of September of My Years by Frank Sinatra.
While the shrink wrap has been removed from the cover, the record is still sealed in the plastic inner sleeve.
About this copy: This copy of September of My Years is a 1965 mono pressing on the Reprise label.
The cover is VG++ and close to M-, with slight foxing on the back cover and a small 1/2″ (1.25 cm) tear near the top edge on the back. There is a metal rivet in the cover in the upper left hand corner.
As the record is still sealed in the inner sleeve, it is presumably new and unplayed. The perforated “tear off” strip is completely intact.
A nice copy of a classic Sinatra LP that’s rather hard to find in mono.
Background: Released in 1965, September of My Years was the sixteenth album Sinatra released in the 1960s on his own Reprise label.
The album reached #5 on the U.S. album chart and won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
Allmusic.com gave September of My Years a 5 star review:
September of My Years is one of Frank Sinatra’s triumphs of the ’60s…. Gordon Jenkins’ rich, stately, and melancholy arrangements give the album an appropriate reflective atmosphere. Most of the songs are new or relatively recent numbers; every cut fits into a loose theme of aging, reflection, and regret. Sinatra, however, doesn’t seem stuck in his ways — though the songs are rooted in traditional pop, they touch on folk and contemporary pop. As such, the album offered a perfect summary, as well as suggesting future routes for the singer.
