Frank Sinatra's Legacy Remembered

Singer's son shares stories about his dad and the impact of his unique musical career

In the '50s and '60s, the iconic Hollywood Capitol Records tower was home to some of music's greats — Dean, Ella, Nat and of course, Ol' Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra. It was a time of big bands and brimmed hats, and Hoboken's favorite son, Sinatra, crooned his way into America's radios, TVs and hearts like no other. Now, Capitol and Reprise Records are releasing a comprehensive new CD collection, "Frank Sinatra: Best of the Best."
