To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Frank Sinatra’s “Duets” album, Universal put together a deluxe box set titled, “Sinatra Duets – Twentieth Anniversary” which featured both “Duets” and “Duets II” both with bonus tracks, a third CD of classic duets by Sinatra, and a fourth disc which was a DVD including interviews, the EPK for the original “Duets” album, and the video for “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” which Sinatra appeared in with Bono.
The tracks on this release, and associated releases were remastered for this album.
Knowing that the deluxe edition may not appeal to the more common record shopper, Universal also released this pared down version of the set, combining the “Duets” and “Duets II” albums into one disc titled “Best of Duets”. A two CD deluxe CD featuring the original two albums was also issued, as well as a vinyl version of the two CD set.
Sinatra recorded his tracks “live” with a 54-piece orchestra at the Capitol studios, the way he originally recorded his classic Capitol albums. Sinatra’s ‘duet’ partners recorded their own vocal tracks to his recordings, allowing them to virtually ‘duet’ with one of the greatest entertainers of all time. “Duets” was one of the most successful selling albums of the year in 1993, with the album shipping more than 1.3 million units in the USA and putting the 77-year-old Sinatra at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard charts, between Pearl Jam’s Vs. and Meatloaf’s Bat Out Of Hell II.
