Offered for sale is an original U.S. mono pressing of Sinatra and Strings, by Frank Sinatra, with the back cover signed by the artist.

Sinatra signed “To Charles, Frank Sinatra” on the back cover in ballpoint pen.

About this copy: This copy of Sinatra and Strings is a 1962 U.S. pressing on the custom Reprise label used for Sinatra’s early releases.

This LP comes from our personal collection.  We acquired it in the mid-1980s from the estate of a former nightclub owner in Dallas, Texas.

This club frequently had popular jazz, blues and pop artists perform there, and the owner routinely had every artist sign a copy of their latest album for him.   Nearly every album in the collection was a new and virtually unplayed first pressing. We had quite a few pieces from this collection at one time, and kept a handful of titles for our own collection.

The owner’s name was Charles, and most of the autographs, including this one, were inscribed to him.

The cover is VG++ and close to M-, with slight wear near the top of the front cover and a small corner bend.  The signature is clear and legible.

The original inner sleeve is included; there are small splits on one side and the bottom.

The mono disc is M- and looks unplayed and likely is unplayed.

A beautiful copy of  a rare Frank Sinatra LP.

Background: Released in early 1962, Sinatra and Strings was the fourth album to be released by the singer on his own Reprise label.

The album reached #8 on the U.S. album chart and #6 on the UK chart. gave Sinatra and Strings a 3 1/2 star review:

Sinatra & Strings, Frank Sinatra’s first album with arranger Don Costa, is an exquisite, romantic collection of ballads and one of his most sensual records. Costa has given the songs — which consist entirely of standards — exceedingly lush, heavily orchestrated arrangements that sound like updated, contemporary versions of Axel Stordahl’s ornate charts. … Sinatra & Strings remains a definitive ballads album, complete with impassioned readings and endlessly rich, detailed arrangements.
