1969 Frank Sinatra – My Way


RIV-144. Reprise Records FS 1029. Stereo.

My Way is an album by American singer Frank Sinatra, released in 1969 on his own Reprise label.

The album is mainly a collection of then-contemporary pop songs, such as Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson”, and The Beatles’ “Yesterday”, French songs such as “If You Go Away”, and the anthemic title song “My Way”, which effectively became Sinatra’s theme song in this stage of his career.

On December 30, 1968 in Los Angeles, a few hours before going to celebrate the New Year 1969, at The Sands Casino from Las Vegas, My Way was recorded and mixed at EastWest Studios, then called Oceanway Recording. Later it was remixed and reissued by Concord Records in 2009 to mark its 40th Anniversary. Two bonus tracks were included, and new liner notes from Bono. The bonus tracks were a rehearsal of “For Once in My Life” from 1969, for Sinatra’s eponymous Emmy Award nominated 1969 television special, Sinatra, and a live 1987 performance of “My Way” at the Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas.
