Album Review

Frank Sinatra Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein is a 17-track compilation of Rodgers & Hammerstein songs Sinatra recorded for Columbia Records during the '40s.

For fans that don't have any collections of Sinatra's Columbia work, or who don't want to spring for the box sets, Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein is an excellent purchase.

These are the songs (and the voice) that got us through Word War II.
