The Capitol Years is a 1998 box set by the American singer Frank Sinatra. This set was originally assembled by EMI, Capitol's sister company in the United Kingdom. The set contains 21 CDs featuring every album that Sinatra authorized for release between 1953 and 1961 (save for Frank Sinatra Conducts Tone Poems of Color and A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra), remastered in state-of-the-art 20-bit digital audio. Each CD contains an individual Sinatra Capitol LP (including singles compilations), but the bonus tracks from the American versions appear on a separate CD here as The Rare Sinatra. The sound quality on this box is arguably superior to American remasters, also produced in 1998 for eight of Sinatra's key albums in the United States.
The Sinatra Collection is a RARE 1983 limited edition, numbered Mobile Fidelity box set containing 16 half-speed mastered audiophille pressing vinyl LPs covering the best of the Capitol years, including 'Swing Easy' which is only available in this box set.
Album released in Spain as a reissue of the English original in 1968. The musician, trumpeter and American director James Henry Haag (Georgia, 1916-1983), alias 'Harry James' conducts his band and plays his trumpet. The distinctive performance style of H. James and his technique as trumpeter was the main factor in his success. In late 1941 the band was considered the best in the USA, surpassed only by the one of Glenn Miller in 1942. Harry discovered in 1939 the beginner Frank Sinatra and was the first to present him as a singer for almost a year.
