Frank Sinatra
"She Shot Me Down"

Recorded in 1981, this was intended to be an album that harkened back to the Capitol years for Frank Sinatra with a selection of tear-jerkers that was probably intended to be reminiscent of 'Only for the Lonely'

The arrangements are beautiful, the song selection is great, including a cover of his daughter's cover of "Bang Bang (She Shot Me Down,)" but you can't help but feel the age creeping into Frank's voice. There's a weariness that you just don't hear in his earlier records.
This isn't probably a recording except for the most avid Sinatra fans.
