Timeless MelodiesFrank Sinatra, the Good Years
A self-taught singer, Frank Sinatra was always doing it his waystraight out of the womb and ever since his feet first hit Hoboken, New Jersey soil.

Whether star of Broadways stage or Hollywoods silver screen, any name that found itself strewn up in lights, you can bet ol Frankie had performed alongside them.
