Most of the Sinatra recordings available during the s consisted of his contemporary work for Capitol Records. But every so often his former label, Columbia Records, would get something together on LP from among his '40s and early-'50s sides.
The Voice was one of a handful of '50s long-players showcasing the first phase of Sinatra 's solo career, and at the Stuck In A Moment - Various - Hit Explosion (2001-2) it wowed listeners -- the focus is on the ballads, and the dozen represented here constitute a bumper crop of classics, all resplendent in the singer's Fools Rush In - Frank Sinatra - The Voice , most overpowering intonation and most delicately nuanced work.
The sensibilities, from the lushly seductive "Laura" to the gently self-satisfied " I Got a Woman Crazy for Me She's Funny That Way," show off a huge emotional range, and the latter song may be the highlight of the album, displaying a soft yet smugly confident brand of machismo, all of it drenched in Axel Stordahl 's overflowing string arrangements, yet quietly bold in its emotional content.
It's that stretch of subtexts that, coupled with the beauty of Sinatra 's instrument and Stordahl 's arrangements, make the singer's Columbia material so striking to hear -- his subsequent work on Capitol and Reprise would be defined differently, and usually more directly, along with the texture and range of his singing. The Columbia material tended to get neglected, both in the marketplace and most listeners' minds, as his career extended over the decades, but hearing The Voice anew is a reminder of just how overpowering Sinatra 's sound could be, even in the early phase of his solo work.
