I didn't know that darlington county was supposed to be on the darkness cd. what was great about the book was not only the pictures but he explained what each song meant to him, a good touch to post the lyrics of all his songs and at the end of the book, he posted the opening lines for each song, Songs is a book that is definitely worth reading.

Frank Sinatra was not only the greatest popular singer of the century-he was also the ultimate recording artist. In addition to introducing and perfecting a unique vocal style, he was also his own in-studio "producer," personally supervising every aspect of his recordings, from choosing the songs and arrangers to making minute adjustments in mike placement. One of the thrills of listening to Sinatra is wondering how he did it-and this book explains it all, bringing the dedicated fan and the casual music lover alike into the recording studio to glimpse the fascinating working methods he introduced and mastered in his quest for recorded perfection. Featuring 100 photographs of Sinatra working with orchestras and arrangers, listening to playbacks, and, of course, singing, Sessions with Sinatra tells the whole story of how he created the Sinatra sound and translated the most intense personal emotions into richly worked-out songs of unrivalled expressiveness.
Readers comments: Into The Recording Studio with Sinatra At last!!!! After all these years, a book that actually takes you into the studio with the century's finest popular singer. Using interviews with arrangers, producers, musicians and engineers, Chuck Granata takes you behind the scenes of the making of such classic Sinatra albums as 'Only The Lonely,' 'Ring a Ding Ding,' and the Concert Sinatra.' It's as close as many of us will ever get to an actual Sinatra recording session. The biggest puzzle is why it took so many years for a book like this to materialize
