Capitol Universal Music Will Release Frank Sinatra: Sinatra Duets - Twentieth Anniversary, On November 18, 2013

To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the groundbreaking, multi-platinum selling album, Capitol/Universal Music will release Frank Sinatra: Sinatra Duets - Twentieth Anniversary, on  November 18, 2013, bringing together the original Duets and the follow-up Duets II, remastered with special extras. Frank Sinatra: Sinatra Duets - Twentieth Anniversary will be available in three editions:

Super Deluxe Box Set featuring Duets and Duets II 180-gram heavyweight vinyl records in a gatefold LP jacket, three CDs including Duets and Duets II with bonus and unreleased tracks, a bonus CD of Classic Duets - the rare deleted album of duet performances from Sinatra's ABC TV shows from 1957 to 1960 - along with a DVD featuring interviews, the official EPK and a promo video of "I've Got You Under My Skin" duet with Bono, plus a 20-page LP sized booklet with rare photos and new liner notes, an embossed lithograph, all housed in an elegant 12"x12" box complete with a gold foil-stamped title.
 
2-CD Deluxe Edition with bonus and unreleased tracks and a 32-page booklet with rare photos and new liner notes.

2-LP Vinyl version of the original Duets and Duets II releases on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl, gatefold jacket.
 
The Super Deluxe Box Set and 2-CD Deluxe Edition releases will include two never-before-released recordings, "One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)" featuring Tom Scott and "Embraceable You" with Tanya Tucker, plus the rare bonus tracks "Fly Me to the Moon" with George Strait, and two versions of "My Way," one recorded with Luciano Pavarotti and the other with Willie Nelson.
 
In addition to these three anniversary editions, Capitol/Universal Music will also release Best Of Duets, a 14-song, single-disc collection featuring key tracks from both Duets and Duets II and the bonus track "My Way" featuring Luciano Pavarotti.
 
Sinatra recorded his tracks "live" with a 54-piece orchestra at the Capitol studios, the way he originally recorded his classic Capitol albums. In a pioneering move for the recording industry, at various locations using digital technology, Sinatra's 'duet' partners recorded their own vocal tracks to his recordings, allowing them to virtually 'duet' with one of the greatest entertainers of all time.Duets made history, not only for its cutting edge recording techniques, and having a renowned contemporary artist, LeRoy Neiman, specially commissioned for album artwork, but for being one of the most successful selling albums of the year, with the album shipping more than 1.3 million units and putting the 77-year-old Sinatra at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard charts, between Pearl Jam's Vs. and Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell II.
 
The highly successful follow-up, Duets II, was released the following year and included Jimmy Buffett, Neil Diamond, Lena Horne, Chrissie Hynde, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Patti LaBelle, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Luis Miguel, Lorrie Morgan, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Jon Secada, Frank Sinatra Jr., Stevie Wonder & Gladys Knight. Once again, Sinatra enjoyed a multi-platinum Top 10 record on the charts with Duets II at No. 9 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart.
 
Even after 50 years of recording, Sinatra continued to blaze a trail for artists and once again cut across all musical genres. These unique recordings are tributes to his legacy and to the immeasurable impact and influence he continues to have on music today.
