Throughout his seven-decade career, Frank Sinatra performed on more than 1,400 recordings and was awarded 31 gold, nine platinum, three double platinum, and one triple platinum album by the Recording Industry Association of America. Sinatra demonstrated a remarkable ability to appeal to every generation and continues to do so; his artistry still influences many of today’s music superstars. The Oscar® winner also appeared in more than 60 films and produced eight motion pictures. Sinatra Sings Alan & Marilyn Bergman features songs by the esteemed, Academy Award winning songwriting duo, including the title track from Sinatra’s 1960 Grammy-nominated album, “Nice ‘N’ Easy.” “As lyric writers,” says Alan Bergman in liner notes, “to have a singer understand and be able to communicate what you wrote, whether it be about love or love lost or songs that needed a humorous approach, Frank got it... his readings were always on the money and more than what we heard in our minds.” Track Listing: 1. Nice ‘N’ Easy 2. Ol’ MacDonald 3. Sentimental Baby 4. Love Looks So Well On You 5. Sleep Warm 6. What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life? 7. The Summer Knows 8. Summer Me, Winter Me 9. L.A.

When the Zorba family inherit a house from their late uncle, the occultist Plato Zorba, they didn’t expect it come with a host of ghostly houseguests, including a headless lion tamer (and lion!), an aflame skeleton, a murderous chef and his victims, and an executioner. Despite this collection of sprites, 13 Ghosts is one of the lighter efforts of shockmeister William Castle – but just as inventive as his best works, and is presented here in both its black-and-white and ‘Illusion-O’ versions.

(1960-76 'Chess') (67:49/24) In the annals of R&B’s great unsung heroines, you won’t find Etta James. Nobody’s idea of an underdog, she recorded prolifically for over 50 years and can hardly be said to have toiled in obscurity. Etta grabbed the spotlight as a teenager with her first recording...

During a span of 55 years, Emil Richards has been a renowned presence in Hollywood soundstages, recording studios, jazz clubs, and international touring venues. Considered a supreme artist on the vibraphone, marimba and xylophone, as well as a master of his world-famous collection of percussion instruments, Richards is renowned throughout the world for his versatility. This audiobook's lifetime of insightful and hilarious experiences include years with Frank Sinatra and George Harrison, as well as many anecdotes involving Burt Bacharach, Elvis Presley and Ravi Shankar, as well as most major recording artists. Richards' chronology roughly categories the audiobook's chapters into decades, with the 1960's mainly involving album recording, television shows in the '70s, and films in the '80s and '90s. A parallel career means stories emanating through playing with George Shearing, Paul Horn, Stan Kenton and Roger Kellaway, as well as Igor Stravinsky and Richards' own group Calamari. There are warm recollections of the great film composers, including Henry Mancini, Alex North, Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams, who all collaborated at finding a unique sound at Richards' warehouse before composing. Salad bowls used in Planet Of The Apes, gongs lowered into fluid for space movies and many other unusual sonic effects will flash listeners back to decades of favorite movies. From an astonishing family history and grim days growing up in Hartford, Connecticut, through wild tours with Sinatra to Europe, Japan and Egypt, and visits to the Maharishi in India, Richards' entertaining, direct style perfectly complements this wealth of inside experiences. 1.

Child prodigy Joshua Bland’s life has been anything but bland. Joshua’s father abandons him and his mentally imbalanced mother when he is a young boy, leaving him to be raised by a cynical, hostile, and self-doubting stepfather. When Joshua loses a national knowledge competition, his family’s reaction puts him on the path to becoming a World War II veteran, best-selling author, successful producer, and absentee father. A Gay and Melancholy Sound is a stark, witty portrait of a man who has had a lifetime of extraordinary experiences, yet no emotional connection to any of it.
