Ol Blue Eye's 'In The Wee Small Hours' is considered to be the very first concept album ever released dealing with themes such as loneliness, introspection, lost love, failed relationships, depression and night life (prior albums were largely a collection of unrelated singles)
Interestingly the 40yo at the time Frank only wrote one track out of the 16 here with all others by different composers. Also of note is the age of the original compositions some of which are closing in on 100 years old for example:
"What Is This Thing Called Love ? " 1929
"Can't We Be Friends?" 1929
"When Your Lover Has Gone" 1931
Crooning at it's very finest
Imenso clássico, a malandragem deu lugar a tristeza.
As has been said by some others, melancholic ballad frank can be a struggle. The title track is gorgeous.
I love Frank, but this set of tunes was too melancholic for my taste.
Escuchar este disco me hace viajar a los años 50. Entrando a un restaurant frances con un cantante de fondo (obciamente Sinatra) acompañado por un piano y un violin. Entonces me siento en esa mesa hasta que llega mi amada elegante con un peinado increible y un vestido sexy pero no mucho como era en esa epoca. Entonces recuerdo que no visto traje y que estoy en el Siglo XXI, pero eso solo pasa cuando el disco se termina. Increible!
A jazz vocal classic. Frank Sinatra's, in the wee small hours, is one of a handful of beautiful late night records he made mainly in the fifties. Personally, I actually prefer, for the lonely, and, no one cares, to this LP, but it's still a great listen. It can be listened to as a concept album of heartache and loneliness, and Sinatra himself was having personal problems with Ava Gardner at this point, and it comes across in a stunning performance. Glad to be unhappy, I get along without you very well, and the timeless title track are all superb. This is probably Sinatra's most important album and one of his best.
Mr. Sinatra at this finest. One of the first "concept" records Frank lays it all out there on this one. You can't get much better than this.
Gorgeous ballad suite album that is clearly "back ended" , in otherwords improves as it goes along. The only thing sadder than the Wee Small Hours is the fact the album finishes at all. Judging from comments column and their ratings many aren't "getting" this album. Best to listen too at the time the album title suggests with the headphones on and the sound low and soft.
I think you have to be in a certain mood/alone in the wee small hours to appreciate this. Very soft and relaxing.
