I like O’l Blue Eyes a lot and this is my favorite Frank Sinatra album. This early stereo masterpiece is just about perfect.
The sound quality of this 7-1/2 i.p.s. tape is excellent all the way through. The stereo presentation is likewise excellent. This 2-track tape plays from start to finish with absolutely no issues. The tape is wound nearly flat.

This tape is wound on the reel tail out. Tail out storage is the only way to go. The existing Audiotape brand leader and tail were retained.

Please see the photos to check the condition of the box and reel.

Every 2-track and quad tape we sell is re-wound tail-out.

To play just rewind the tape to an empty reel on the left-side platter, then play it back onto the reel. After playing the tape will be wound onto its reel at low tension, ready to put back on the shelf.

To correctly wind 2-track and quad tapes you need two generic reels.

o Fast forward the tape completely off its factory reel to generic reel #1
o Splice a tail onto the end of the tape
o Rewind the tape to generic reel #2
o Play the tape back onto the original reel

Now it's ready to store correctly, at low-tension.

Where Are You? is the thirteenth studio album by Frank Sinatra .

The song "I Think of You " is based on the lyrical second theme in E flat major from the Piano Concerto No. 2 by Sergei Rachmaninoff .
Early pressings of the original stereo album had only 11 tracks while the mono version had all 12 tracks. The stereo edition may have been missing "I Cover The Waterfront" because it was only recorded in mono. Later stereo pressings in some international markets and in boxed sets restored "Waterfront," beginning circa 1975 (in Holland).

Francis Albert Sinatra (December 12, 1915 – May 14, 1998) was an American singer, actor and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 150 million records worldwide.
Born to Italian immigrants in Hoboken, New Jersey, Sinatra was greatly influenced by the intimate easy listening vocal style of Bing Crosby and began his musical career in the swing era with bandleaders Harry James and Tommy Dorsey . Sinatra found success as a solo artist after he signed with Columbia Records in 1943, becoming the idol of the “ bobby soxers ". He released his debut album, The Voice of Frank Sinatra , in 1946. But by the early 1950s his professional career had stalled and he turned to Las Vegas, where he became one of its best known residency performers as part of the Rat Pack . His career was reborn in 1953 with the success of From Here to Eternity , with his performance subsequently winning an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor. Sinatra released several critically lauded albums, including In the Wee Small Hours (1955), Songs for Swingin’ Lovers! (1956), Come Fly With Me (1958), Only the Lonely (1958) and Nice n Easy (1960).
Sinatra left Capitol in 1960 to start his own record label, Reprise Records, and released a string of successful albums. In 1965, he recorded the retrospective album, September of my Years and starred in the Emmy-winning television special Frank Sinatra: A Man and His Music. After releasing Sinatra at the Sands, recorded at the Sands Hotel and Casino in Vegas with frequent collaborator Count Basie in early 1966, the following year he recorded one of his most famous collaborations with Tom Jobim, the album Francis Albert Sinatra & Carlos Jobim. It was followed by 1968’s Francis A. & Edward K. with Duke Ellington. Sinatra retired for the first time in 1971, but came out of retirement two years later. He recorded several albums and resumed performing at Caesers Palace, and released “New York, New York" in 1980. Using his Las Vegas shows as a home base, he toured both within the United States and internationally until shortly before his death in 1998.
Sinatra forged a highly successful career as a film actor. After winning an Academy Award for From Here to Eternity, he starred in The Man With the Golden Arm (1955), and in The Manchurian Candidate (1962). He appeared in various musicals such as On the Tow n (1949), Guys and Dolls (1955), High Society(1956), and Pal Joey (1957), winning another Golden Globe for the latter. Toward the end of his career, he frequently played detectives, including the title character in Tony Rome (1967). Sinatra would later receive the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award in 1971. On television, The Frank Sinatra Show began on ABC in 1950, and he continued to make appearances on television throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Sinatra was also heavily involved with politics from the mid-1940s, and actively campaigned for presidents such as Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. Sinatra was investigated by the FBI for his alleged relationship with the Mafia.
While Sinatra never learned how to read music, he worked very hard from a young age to improve his abilities in all aspects of music. A perfectionist, renowned for his dress sense and performing presence, he always insisted on recording live with his band. His bright blue eyes earned him the popular nickname "Ol' Blue Eyes". Sinatra led a colorful personal life, and was often involved in turbulent affairs with women, such as with his second wife Ava Gardner. He later married Mia Farrow in 1966 and Barbara Marx in 1976. Sinatra had several violent confrontations, usually with journalists he felt had crossed him, or supervisors with whom he had disagreements. He was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors in 1983, was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Ronald Reagan in 1985, and the Congressional Gold Medal in 1997. Sinatra was also the recipient of eleven Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Trustees Award, Grammy Legend Award and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. He was collectively included in Time magazine's compilation of the 20th Century’s 100 most influential people. After Sinatra's death, American music critic Robert Christgau called him "the greatest singer of the 20th century", and he continues to be seen as an iconic figure.
