Each time Brian gives his usual thoughtful analysis of a Sinatra album, I feel the need to go out and buy it. This is getting expensive.

Thanks Brian!

A good treatment of one of my favourite Frank projects. You can tell he's tiptoeing at times, he's not at home with this style of music, and it adds to the feeling of vulnerability the man in the story is feeling.. It's very effective..

Glad to see this album get some ears recently - I discovered it a while back, and it's part of my regular listening since..

I discovered Watertown in my father's record collection when I was 16 p. That was in 1970 and at that has time my music listening was heavy into the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. Nevertheless, I played the album a few times and got hooked on it. It's still one of my favorite albums. In fact, I just listened to it again today.

I was able to find it on vinyl awhile back. Such lovely, evocative packaging.

I bought this album when it was released after I graduated from college and flew West like many people did then. I always loved Sinatra and this album is my favorite. I got into Bob Dylan in a serious way 25 years later and still am.

Solid analysis of this "frankly" lovely (and, yes, poignant) record.
