The Best of the Capitol Years is an effective distillation of the three-disc set The Capitol Years. Featuring singles and album tracks, the disc contains a fair number of highlights from one of Sinatra's most creative periods. Although the albums really are more effective as individual works -- and, therefore, straight singles compilations would be ideal -- The Best of the Capitol Years gives a good introduction to this pivotal phase of Sinatra's career.
