In the Wee Small Hours (original issue: Capitol W-581) is an album by Frank Sinatra with arrangements by Nelson Riddle, released in 1955. It is with this album that Sinatra perfected the concept album, fully realizing the ideas he had been grappling with in record presentation going all the way back to The Voice from 1946. It remains one of the most celebrated and enduring concept albums that Sinatra put out during the 1950s.

Favorite Albums - Almost Made It (20 music items)

"Ava Gardner breaks Frank Sinatra’s heart, and he releases this set of torch songs and heart-breakers. You can feel the tear stains and pain in his voice, the loneliness of late nights staring into yet another drink. One of the first concept albums, one of the great albums of the 50s, and one of the greatest break-up records ever, this might be the definitive Sinatra record. DOWNLOAD: “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” “What Is This Thing Called Love?,” “Mood Indigo”"

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"A masterpiece of late-night misery The sound of swingin’, Scotch-on-the-rocks cool finally grew up. Ol’ Red Eyes’ legendary “dark days” — the booze-soaked brawls, the fall from popularity, the heartbreak and hair loss — were behind him, but each scar added depth and power to these smoky ballads. Standout tracks: “Deep in a Dream,” “I’ll Be Around”"

"The album has a somewhat sad atmosphere, and, perhaps precisely because of it, very beautiful. Frankie boy is very inspired in his vocals, reaching some notes that I did not know that he was able to and loaded with emotion. The instrumental is wonderful, at times you think you are listening to classical music."
