Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Frank Sinatra (vocals); Axel Stordahl (arranger, conductor).
  • Recorded between 1953 and 1961. Includes liner notes by Pete Welding.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • This is part of Capitol Records "Entertainer Of The Century" series.
  • This was Sinatra's last recording for Capitol: all songs were recorded in September 1961, except the bonus tracks, which were recorded in 1953. In 1961 he left Capitol to start his own record label, Reprise Records.
  • The aptly titled POINT OF NO RETURN is a portrait of a man at odds with himself and his world, both literally (the moody cover painting) and sonically. It may have been any one of the pressures on Sinatra (the onset of middle age, his insoluble difficulties with Capitol Records) or a combination of all of them that drove him to record this album full of self-doubt, regret and bittersweet nostalgia for the days of his youth. Thematically, this record anticipates the 1965 Gordon Jenkins-arranged SEPTEMBER OF MY YEARS.
  • Though Sinatra's Tommy Dorsey Band buddy Axel Stordahl's arrangement style is much more conservative than that of Jenkins, the wistful, world-weary performances of "September Song," "It's a Blue World" and others present Sinatra as a man still determined to be the voice of a generation, one that was following him into the personal upheavals of mid-life.
