Lucky Strike presents Frank Sinatra (1943)
Frank sings 'Stardust' with the Lucky Strike Orchestra - Do you remember those Lucky's you secretly sneaked into the backyard to puff away?
"Sinatra was...the first modern pop superstar...Following his idol Bing Crosby, who had pioneered the use of the microphone,
Sinatra transformed popular singing by infusing lyrics with a personal, intimate point of view that conveyed a steady current of eroticism.....
Almost single-handedly, he helped lead a revival of vocalized swing music that took American pop to a new level of musical sophistication...his 1950's recordings...were instrumental in establishing a canon of American pop song literature."
