Learn to croon by Frank Sinatra( Recording )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frank Sinatra had yet to escape the artistic shadow of Bing Crosby when he sang Crosby's self-mocking "Learn to Croon" as part of a 1940 Dorsey-band broadcast medley. (As for Our Gang's Alfalfa, who also essayed the tune, he never did escape.) Learn to Croon collects more Dorsey-Sinatra performances from the trove that produced its companion volume, It's All So New! Unburdened by that CD's load of amateur-song-contest submissions, Croon focuses instead on Sinatra-Dorsey-Jo Stafford "Memory Medleys" and some hot ensemble band work. A sweet, swinging, amusing look back at the days of Sinatra's very early stardom. --Rickey Wright
