Frank Sinatra Platinum vinyl boxset

Legendary crooner Frank Sinatra is getting a 4LP vinyl boxset on October 27 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of his signing to Capitol Records.

Platinum spans Sinatra’s Capitol-era releases with newly remastered audio along with rare and previously unreleased tracks (he recorded over 300 songs for Capitol between 1953 and 1962).

The limited edition set includes 44 of Sinatra’s most beloved songs, including “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”, “Come Fly With Me” and “Only The Lonely”, along with sought-after rarities.

The 4LPs come housed in a hardback, large format package that includes rare photos, an introductory essay and quotes from Sinatra and his arrangers.
