Performance:   Sonics:
The first Sinatra MOFI disc to be released on SACD, and is it ever magnificent. These 1957 master tapes must have been kept in an air-tight, hyperbolic chamber; simply pristine sonics.

From the first few bars of track 1, “Where are You”, I knew this was going to be everything that I had hoped for. Everything is just wonderful! The mono is evenly distributed, the recording levels are perfect, allowing for heavy handed-ness on the on the volume nob. Sinatra’s velvety voice simply jumps out of the speakers.

For comparison, this is miles ahead of the 1957, “Here’s Little Richard”, MOFI disc that I just purchased. Sonically, this first Sinatra release is just as pure as the fantastic “Ella and Louis” Analog Productions SACD, and even rivals the crystal clear vocal clarity of the recently released, “Nat King Cole, Love Is The Thing” AP SACD. If you’ve heard those, you know just how high the bar has been raised. 10 out of 10 for fidelity on the vocals, and a 9 for the orchestra; which only once or twice get pushed just slightly beyond the sweet spot.

Some day this is going to be fetching $100+ as an OOP. At $30, this is a no-brainer.

Frank Sinatra - Where Are You ? SACD

What an amazing album..........what an amazing voice !

In all it's MONO-BEAUTY, Sinatra's "Where Are You?" is an album that verges on perfection! An album that is filled with that incredible creative Sinatra - lonely romanticism that only he can pull off.
I should probably tell you that I grew up in a house that played Sinatra all the time and hearing his voice again this clear harkens me back to my childhood and a place that was part Frank!

This was the FIRST album that Sinatra recorded with Gordon Jenkins and his orchestra and gave the world a little first glimpse into what was still to come!

The music is rich in texture and full of deep regret and longing....your heart will break listening to this album......

And now as for the sound.................well........daddy needs baby!!!!!!

Yup the sound of this MOFI SACD is gorgeous.......truely a beautiful disc! From the opening soft orchestral vibes of "Where Are You?" to the heart ripping "baby wont you please come home" Sinatra never sounded so clear and rich. Rob LoVerde at Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs has pulled off a little sonic magic on this SACD release! Sinatra's voice is less differentiated than the great Nat King Cole AP SACD's and his voice in contrast is closer to the orchestra. I think LoVerde did a great job in keeping Sinatra's voice mixed well with Jenkins and his orchestra. This is the way Sinatra would have wanted it and it does sound so well assembled.
