Frank Sinatra / “Duets” 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition

duetsbox

It’s been 20 years since the Frank Sinatra Duets album which saw him collaborate with artists as diverse as Barbara Streisand, Tony Bennett, Bono and Gloria Estefan.

To commemorate this, Capitol/Universal Music have created a Super Deluxe Edition box set that features both the Duets album and its follow-up Duets II (which was originally released a year later in 1994).

The box set contains Duets and Duets II pressed on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl, presented in a gatefold LP jacket. Both albums are also included on CD with unreleased bonus tracks (including My Way with Luciano Pavarotti), and a third CD of ‘classic duets’ collects duet performances from Sinatra’s ABC TV shows from 1957 to 1960. Full track listing can be found below.

A DVD featuring interviews, the official Electronic Press Kit (EPK) and a promo video of I’ve Got You Under My Skin duet with Bono completes this six-disc set.

A 20-page LP sized booklet with rare photos and new liner notes is included along with an embossed lithograph. All the contents are housed in an elegant 12”x 12” box complete with a gold foil-stamped title.

As well as this Super Deluxe Edition, a two-CD deluxe edition is being issued which contains both expanded Duets albums. If that is more than you want you can even pick up a Best Of Duets which is a single CD collection featuring ‘key tracks’ from the two albums. The Double Vinyl is also available separately.

Duets 20th Anniversary is released on 18 November 2013.

    The albums are far too long for single vinyl, 180g or not. I’m getting a bit fed up with the 180g marketing, because if the records aren’t mastered/cut well it is pointless. The 180g reissue of Madness’ Absolutely sounds significantly worse than it’s thin 80s counterpart. The 180g Deacon Blue Raintown also doesn’t sound as good as the bog standard black vinyl (grateful to win it though, thanks Paul.)
