With the Christmas market doubtless in mind, Capitol Records has released six more Frank Sinatra compact discs, all but one of which include additional tracks.
"The Sinatra Christmas Album" consists basically all of the 1957 LP, but includes the previously unreleased "White Christmas" and two versions of the Jule Styne-Sammy Cahn "Christmas Waltz," one with arranger Nelson Riddle conducting, one with Gordon Jenkins.
"Point of No Return" is unique in that it includes, along with the contents of Sinatra's final album for Capitol (in 1962), four cuts from his first date for the label, among them the previously unissued "Day In, Day Out."
"Come Dance With Me," a jazz-oriented set with charts by Billy May, includes two unreleased duets with Keely Smith ("Nothing in Common" and "How Ya Fixed for Love?"--hardly the ideal songs for this or any other duo), as well as the newly issued "It All Depends on You" and "Same Old Song and Dance."
