Frank Sinatra Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein is a 17-track compilation of Rodgers & Hammerstein songs Sinatra recorded for Columbia Records during the '40s. Featuring selections from several of the team's musicals (Oklahoma, South Pacific, The King and I, and Carousel), including "Oh What A Beautiful Morning," "I Whistle A Happy Tune," and "Soliloquy," this disc features a among other musicals, this disc features some of Sinatra's performances and is intelligently sequenced -- in fact, the compilation plays like it was one of his original concept albums. For fans that don't have any collections of Sinatra's Columbia work, or who don't want to spring for the box sets, Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein is an excellent purchase.
