"Breakup albums"


Recommended Posts

Sinatra represents the kind of music my parents generation listened to. Schmaltzy crap. There was an Xmas special starring Sinatra and Bing Crosby shown by the BBC a few weeks back. Boring. I just don't get it. The musical equivalent of Dulux Emulsion. I can't even pretend to enjoy it. He may well have had some influence on Springsteen and others but I still don't get it. I prefer early Tom Waits - similar style but more honest and 'edgy'

Maybe Dylan will give this material a bit of an 'edge'.

I think that they are songs that Sinatra has sung, but they are also American song book songs, so it's not really a tribute as such, if you see what I mean, the reviews suggest Dylan adds an honesty to them and the experience of his years too. It's on pre order but that means nothing with me and Bobby.
