Best summary of Dorsey years

Frank was with Tommy Dorsey only from 1940-42, and if you don't want to spring for the box set "The Song Is You" which has every master take he did with Dorsey, this is the best sampler, with 44 songs from the box which will satisfy all but the completist.

This is early Frank, before he had his swagger. He sings the songs straight up, without bending the lyric. Dorsey and his trombone are omnipresent, as well as Jo Stafford and the Pied Pipers. I would rank this music as more interesting than his Columbia work with Axel Stordahl in the 1940s, although that ballad-heavy body of work has its own charms too.
