Frank Sinatra's "Get Happy" 10 inch LP on Columbia CL-2521.. this is from the mid 1950s and was a reissue/repackaging job of Frank's 1940s Columbia recordings- one of many- to cash in on Sinatra's comeback in 1953 with an Oscar and his incredibly popular and critically acclaimed recordings with Nelson Riddle for Capitol this point Columbia had reissued a ton of Sinatra and this record has the signs of dredging the barrel.. evidently they had no picture of Frank left to use because he'd long left the label so they came up with this wonderful cartoon by someone identified on the cover as norkin..songwise it includes such dross as "the huckle buck" and "bim bam baby" and even throws in a christmas song "let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!".. i do love the cartoon.. but this 10 inch is not where i would start if i was looking to collect frank sinatra on vinyl...
