Frank Sinatra, Nevertheless, I’m in Love with You. Capitol-Pickwick SPC-3456. 1967.
I just sold this one and I should have kept it. Not that it’s worth any money to speak of. My grandmother who passed in 2000 gave it to me while I was still in high school. That’s when I was mostly into Boston, Led Zep, Scorpions, and a few oldies like Elvis or Chuck Berry.
“Why did you give me this Grandma?” “Because you collect records and anyone who collects records needs to have some Frank Sinatra.”
Well, it wasn’t till after she was gone that I started to truly started to appreciate Frank, Dean, and those guys. I eventually ended up with quite a bit of Sinatra, and so when a guy came over to the house and went through my albums picking out ones to buy, he took this one and several others. I could have pulled out any that I didn’t want to sell, and felt a tug when he had this one, but I let it go. It wasn’t my favorite (but it is a good one), and my kids won’t care about my little story, so why worry about it? I actually feel better about selling it now after confessing my silliness. But what a great photo of Sinatra on the cover.
