 Listening to Frank as a youthful baby boomer and working through much of his portfolio of recordings as the years passed has provided an appreciation of those periods in the studio when Frank arose of a morning to find the larynx in good shape. There are performances of songs he sang that I love, but on many of them there is occasionally a hint of roughness now and then, a tiny burr in the voice that prevented the performance being flawless. A late night with the Pack perhaps, or one too many cigarettes in those days.

But here, with 'Young At Heart', coupled to the peerless arrangement and backing of the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, the performance really is, to my ear at least, utterly perfect. The voice is brushed satin and the song too is a joy. It probably wasn't (and someone will tell me), but it sounds like Take 1, which went straight in the can.
