Few albums are so compelling that they prompt a competing record label to go to court in attempt to block their potential popularity and success. Yet that’s what happened in 1961 when Capitol Records legally forced Reprise Records, Frank Sinatra’s new home, to change the title of Sinatra Swings to Swing Along With Me. Capitol felt that the blockbuster set was too close in sound (and title) to the Chairman’s Come Swing With Me. Still, the action couldn’t conceal the truth: Swing Along With Me is a phenomenal effort that fines the Voice in mellifluous form. The record pairs the legendary singer with arranger Billy May, who leads an orchestra that just doesn’t quit. Just as impressive, the album features the incredible production standards for which the era is famous. The result: Tour de force vocals, fabulous rhythms, grand interpretations and vivid sonics.
