I''d give this album five stars because of its historical and cultural significance if the music orchestration and production were better. But for something produced in 1946, this is not a bad piece of work. I probably will not listen to it much for reasons I state below, but as a piece of pop music history and cultural and biographical significance, it rates 4 stars easily. If the music was as good as some of Duke Ellington''s orchestrations recorded in the forties, then it would get five stars.

What''s wrong with the orchestration? It is orchestrated by Axel Stordahl, who orchestrated Sinatra''s first two albums, that is, this one and the next one in 1947. This album, as something of an early anthology, contains the tunes from both of those albums. Unfortunately, the orchestrations are all very much in the same vein. Unlike Nelson Riddle, who orchestrated Sinatras recordings in the 50s, Stordahl was less creative and insightful with the music. Stordahl just was not as musically sophisticated as Riddle. Every song on this album seems sonically the same from song to song. When you consider the range of composers who wrote the songs for this album (Fred Coots, Cole Porter, the Gershwin''s, Alhert and Turk, Bing Crosby, e.g.), it''s rather a mediocre accomplishment of Stordahl to make all these varied composers sound the same. But if you are a Sinatra fan, you will appreciate the step that Sinatra made in making this album.

These songs were released in 1946 as four records, or eight sides of 78s. Perhaps the tunes were also released as single 78''s, too; I don''t know but it would not surprise me if they were. Some critics call this first Sinatra album the first "concept album." For that reason it is a significant musical artifact. One could argue it is not a "concept album," though, because the songs were written and composed by different artists, so the only thing making it a "concept," IMHO, is Sinatra''s style and All Stordhal''s orchestrations.

The music captures Sinatra at his teenybopper-pleasing best. In the mid to late 40s, Sinatra was as big as the Beatles were in the early 60s; hence, the title of the album, "The ''Voice'' of Frank Sinatra." In the late forties, Sinatra was known as "the Voice" in the same way the Beatles were known as the "Fab Four" in their day.

As I say, this music is not as sonically interesting as Sinatra''s later work of the 50s and beyond, but as a historical artifact, a cultural artifact, and a sign of Sinatra''s ambitions as a musical artist and a businessman, this album is important enough to notice. Not every Sinatra fan needs to own it, and I may get rid of it eventually, but it''s an important "listen."

With the possible exception of "Frank Sinatra Sings His Greatest Hits", this is the GREATEST single disc collection of young Sinatra''s Columbia recordings. Each song is gorgeous, and Frank''s singing shows why he went on to last decades. The bonus tracks are splendid - "It Never Entered My Mind", "Always"...
If you want one disc of early Sinatra, make it this one or the aforementioned "Sings His Greatest Hits".
I have to add that you wouldn''t go wrong with Columbia''s "Love Songs" either. But "The Voice" was meant to be an album back in 1945 (spread out over four 78''s), so it doesn''t have the advantage of being a career-wide chosen collection, which makes it all the more brilliant, so extra points for "The Voice"! "You won''t regret it/women don''t forget it" (from The Voice)

When Frank Sinatra wanted to listen to music, really listen, he listened to the string quartet, by the likes of Beethoven, Haydn and Tchaikovsky. Yes, the string quartet: two violins, viola and cello. This was a side of Sinatra few expected--a man of reflection and deep sensitively. In the mid-1940s, when Sinatra was a star of the first magnitude, he asked Axel Stordhal to arrange music for eight songs of similar content and emotional depth. This was something new. Up to that time, the industry practice was to release an album of generally unrelated, previously recorded songs that had failed to chart. What Sinatra was proposing was an industry first--a "theme album." As usual with Frank, he wanted the arrangements yesterday. Most unusually, he wanted the arrangements scored for string quartet and a few additional solo instruments, to flesh out the sound--horn, sax, flute, and guitar. Released in 1946, "The Voice" topped the charts and changed everything. After "The Voice," the album began to be recognized as an artistic expression as opposed to what it had been, a collection of unrelated tunes.

With this release, remastered for CD, Sony has reissued Sinatra''s original eight-song theme album, plus ten bonus songs (some of which are from the follow-up concept album, "Frankly Sentimental"). Among these, "The Nearness of You," "I''ve Got a Crush on You," "It Never Entered My Mind," "Fools Rush In," "Always" and "(I Don''t Stand) A Ghost of Chance With You" are considered superior to what Sinatra recorded later for Capital and Reprise, according to a survey of Sinatra music critics that were polled by the authors of "Sinatra 101: The 101 Best Recordings and the Stories Behind Them," by Ed O''Brien and Robert Wilson. The original eight songs are very good as well, including such Sinatra staples as "Someone to Watch Over Me," "You Go to my Head," and "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You"). If you''re idea of Classic Frank is what he recorded in the 1950s, you''re in for a treat with these 1940s'' recordings. "The Voice" is "Classic" Classic Frank. Your Sinatra collection is incomplete without it. Mono sound is good for its day but not up to today''s high standards and is marred by occasional surface noise (the transfer is not from tape but from aluminum acetate discs). Four stars.

Released in 1946 as an eight song set of 10" 78s, the 1948 reissue of THE VOICE OF FRANK SINATRA (CL 6001) was COLUMBIA Records'' very first LP. In keeping with the established format for pop 78s, the disc was also 10". (COLUMBIA stayed with albums of this size until 1952.) Their first few dozen LPs are in a generic cover with a white silhouette of a music stand. Made of stock paper, this jacket has a flap at the top like an envelope.

Recording sessions were held in NYC and LA. Most prominent among studio musicians are guitarist George Van Eps and Mitch Miller on oboe. The general tone (depending on the song) is quiet introspection or doting adoration.

RANDOM NOTES
"These Foolish Things" is a gorgeous rendition of a classic ballad of love lost. On "I Don''t Know Why," levels are cut back when Sinatra hits one loud note. Otherwise, a nice production. Mitch''s oboe is clear on a slow-paced "Try a Little Tenderness." Celesta adds touches of counterpoint. "Ghost of a Chance" is another velvety ballad that showcases the vocalist''s soothing tone. The lyric of "Paradise" has intentional humming. Miller''s all over this one.

(Playlist includes session dates.)

SIDE ONE
You Go To My Head (7/30/45)
Someone To Watch Over Me (7/30/45)
These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You) (7/30/45)
Why Shouldn''t I (12/7/45)

The front cover photo of COLUMBIA''s THE VOICE (CL 743) has been curiously retouched. Frank Sinatra is in half-right profile. His dark hair has shiny blue glints, probably from overhead studio lighting. In his hair, located directly over the singer''s right eye is what appears to be a black-colored egg, an ebon orb with white highlight that''s a painter''s poor attempt to camouflage Frankie''s receding hairline.

THE VOICE was originally a set of four 10" 78s, issued by COLUMBIA in 1946. Axel Stordahl arranged and conducted the band. In ''48, THE VOICE OF FRANK SINATRA , also a 10" record, was COLUMBA''s debut LP. When re-released in 1955 on this 12" disc, only five of the original tracks were included.

Sessions were held in N.Y.C. and L.A. Most prominent among studio musicians are guitarist George Van Eps and Mitch Miller on oboe. The general tone (depending on the song) is quiet introspection or doting adoration.

SIDE ONE NOTES
1.) A delicate arrangement that''s carried by guitar, laid-back strings, celesta and Frank''s very best lullabye crooning. 2.) Miller''s oboe is clear on this slow-paced ballad. Again, celesta adds touches of counterpoint. 3.) Another velvety ballad showcasing the vocalist''s soothing tone. 4.) The lyric has intentional humming. Miller''s all over this one. 5.) A gorgeous rendition of a classic ballad of love lost. 6.) It just gets better. Compare this 1946 version to his later ''57 remake on CAPITOL''s WHERE ARE YOU? album. On the latter he goes for vocal melodrama. Here, Frank''s approach is lighter and more natural. Has beautiful strings in the break.

SIDE TWO NOTES
1.) Levels are cut back when Sinatra hits one loud note. Otherwise, a nice production. 2.) A sibilant clarity not heard on previous cuts. For the first time, Frank quavers while sustaining a low note. 3.) A chorus backs him on this Yarburg/Arlen classic. With lyrics not heard in THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939). 4.) Guitar and bass rhythm plus slow muted brass triplets on this perennial torcher. Sinatra nicely punches that last syllable. 5.) Sounds like he''s singing "walls" instead of "waltz" on this exquisitely sad number. 6.) A lively closer to an otherwise lullabye-ish set is most welcome. Great sax and brass section work, plus a fabulous open trumpet solo.

(Playlist includes session dates.)
