Background: By 1955, Frank Sinatra had left Columbia Records and was starting to see success at Capitol. Columbia took advantage of that success and reissued material that Sinatra had recorded in the late 1940s and early 1950s for the label; The Voice was probably the best and most critically-acclaimed of those albums.
Most of the Sinatra recordings available during the 1950s consisted of his contemporary work for Capitol Records. But every so often his former label, Columbia Records, would get something together on LP from among his ’40s and early-’50s sides. The Voice was one of a handful of ’50s long-players showcasing the first phase of Sinatra’s solo career, and at the time it wowed listeners — the focus is on the ballads, and the dozen represented here constitute a bumper crop of classics, all resplendent in the singer’s richest, most overpowering intonation and most delicately nuanced work. … The Columbia material tended to get neglected, both in the marketplace and most listeners’ minds, as his career extended over the decades, but hearing The Voice anew is a reminder of just how overpowering Sinatra’s sound could be, even in the early phase of his solo work.
