Favorite Album Covers: Frank Sinatra - Romance: Songs From The Heart

Sinatra_Romance

It's time for another one of my favorite album covers. Today it's Romance: Songs From The Heart by Frank Sinatra. I really dig this image of Sinatra out on the street. This is a wonderful albums. It's full of love songs by Ol' Blue Eyes. Some of the songs are I've Got You Under My Skin, My Funny Valentine, Cheek To Cheek, As Times Goes By & Embraceable You. I love this album. I listen to it all the time. It's definitely the perfect album to listen to when you've got that special someone over at your pad.

P.S. I hope you'll check out my latest post at Celluloid Slammer. I found a couple of tribute videos dedicated to Sharon Tate, featuring just screenshots from The Wrecking Crew. I thought they were pretty cool so I wanted to post them. Please check them out and leave me some comments there. Thanks.

Hey Proudly. Thanks for the comments. I love his songs too. I don't have much of a voice myself.

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Thanks. I figured you did. You're a bigger Sinatra fan than I am.

Don't know this one Keith - I'll be sure to check it out though...

Keith said...

Thanks Dave. I really like this album a lot.

Kate Gabrielle said...

This is a good cover - I like a lot of the 50's LP covers, like Wee Small Hours and my favorite is Point of No Return.

Keith said...

Thanks Kate. I totally agree. My grandmother has so many albums from the 1950's. They were unfortunately destroyed in some hurricanes in the 1990's.

What strange photo to use on a LP cover for promoting love songs! Old Blue Eyes standing in the street looking over his shoulder??? I can only imagine him looking at a beautiful women fashionable dressed passing him by and he longing to date her! LOL

Keith said...

Hey Mirko. Thanks for the comments. Yeah, it does look on sight to be a strange photo to use for an album of love songs. I think we can all read our own ideas into it. Maybe he's looking at someone. Who knows.

I have begin to collect secondhand albums of Dino, Frank and Sammy, it's rather difficult to find in Sweden to a low price. Mostly I like the covers very much...

dino martin peters said...

Hey pallie Keith, glad you likes this album...but I think that the frankie looks pretty stiff on this cover...but of course we know he ain't our King of Cool...

Keith said...

Hey Sid. Thanks for the comments. Most of what I've got of theirs is on CD. I do have some albums too. I usually find them here and there at thrift stores, etc.

Keith said...

Hey pallie DMP. Thanks for the comments. LOL Why am I not surprised about your assertions about Frankie? :-)

Some Like it Vintage said...

Uber cool. I'm a HUGE Sinatra fan too! And of course Dino Martino :-) Just found your blog and love it!

Keith said...

Thanks for the comments. It was great to hear from you. I'm glad you like my blog. I hope you will come back again. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Mel. I knew you would love this cover. It is a nice shot of Frank. That's for letting me know where it was at. Cheers!
