I own this album; I have a collection of LPs with "Swingin'" (NO LAST G EVER!) in the title. I love Dean better than Frank, though he's only 2/3rds the singer, because Dean is fun.
Cool! I agree that Dean was/is more fun than Old Blue Eyes. I think that was a known fact. During the days of the Summit (the Rat Pack), Sinatra lamented the fact Dean (and even Sammy) could get riotous laughs with a joke he'd bomb with. Sinatra had too much gravitas. But that worked for him in other ways.I love the no-G-in-Swinging thing. Very late fifties/early sixties. Like dropping the g made it even better.
I like to think that the loss of the 'g' was the unlacing of America, maybe the beginning of the sexual revolution.
