One of the most acclaimed albums of his career, Sinatra and Strings is a brilliant collection of standards sung with spectacular passion and feeling by Frank Sinatra, who at the time of the November 1961 recording sessions, was in peak form. The 1962 set is Sinatra’s first with arranger Don Costa, and it stands as their finest collaboration. Every song here is a classic ballad, every performance an elegant masterstroke.
Half-speed mastered from the original analog tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered limited-edition 180-gram LP presents Sinatra and Strings with a premium sonic fidelity that no other edition, including the original vinyl, has ever had. MoFi engineers took their time in extracting every possible detail and nuance from this gem, resulting a pressing that makes Sinatra and the orchestra come alive in your room. Nothing is artificially exaggerated or boosted; what you hear is what the artists intended.
Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MFSL) Mastering
Mobile Fidelity have become famous for the quality of their audiophile LP releases. Many standard LPs are mastered from fifth or sixth generation copies of the original recording. In contrast, Mobile Fidelity LPs are mastered from the original master tapes, for the most accurate representation of the original recording. It is also mastered at half-speed, allowing twice as much time for the cutting system to capture every conceivable detail and nuance from the master tape.
This produces much more head room, with superior dynamic range, better top-end, superior frequency response and improved stereo separation. No transformers were used during mastering and limiting is never employed, so nothing has been introduced that could cause distortion or squeeze sonic life out of the recording. The album is pressed on 180 gram weight super vinyl, which in contrast to standard LPs has almost no surface noise and a much longer life span. The overall result is arguably the best sounding commercial release of this album ever available - the next best thing to having been in the recording studio during the original sessions!
Presented with the usual Mobile Fidelity deluxe packaging treatment, which includes high quality original artwork sleeve, cardboard inner stiffener and rice paper inner sleeve.
