Frank Sinatra Album - Concepts £8.99 245 Songs!!

This is a great buy for anyone who is a Frank Sinatra fan, it is the Frank Sinatra - Concepts Album which is a collection of remastered tracks from his Capitol years and contains most of his best tracks. It is not recordings of concerts but real studio tracks and was released as a 16 CD box set back in the 90's. The tracks sound fantastic and even if you own a copy on CD / LP of many of them if you play your music digitally it will be worth getting for the audio quality.

It has been on Amazon UK at this price for at least a few days but is on Amazon US Download site at $185.76 and the only one in the UK Marketplace for a hardcopy is £126 so they clearly have it mispriced.

And remember Amazon Downloads are DRM free so imagine all this downloaded onto a cheap MP3 player as a Christmas present or even burnt to CD.

Also sorry if this has been posted I trawled back through 6 months of threads with Frank Sinatra in and couldn't find it.

The Amazon UK link is here and the US link for comparison is here

Sorry for geeking on but I am a massive Frank Sinatra fan. Oh and remember this is about a 1.3GB download so watch any d/l limits or fups you have.

The list of tracks is below which I pinched of Wikipedia. the running time is over 14hrs.
