A Cosmic Baseball Game



This game is part of the Cosmic Baseball Association's Sinatra Centennial Series.

In December 2014, Bob Dylan announced that he would release a new album in February 2015 called Shadows in the Night. It will contain songs already sung by Frank Sinatra. One selection, "Full Moon and Empty Arms" (released by Sinatra in 1945) is already available on the internet.

Like others, Dylan is participating in the celebration of Sinatra's "Centennial." If Sinatra, born in 1915, had not died in 1998, he would be one hundred years old on December 12, 2015.

LINE SCORE
Top

Is Dylan's voice going to contrast starkly to Sinatra's? Absolutely, but that's not a bad thing. I'd rather listen to a cover album from a musician with a starkly different voice from the source material. What good is a cover that sounds exactly like the original? [...] Dylan has a knack for going in weird directions and making them work.
-- [from Don't Expect Dylan's Sinatra Cover Album To Bomb]

The Voice, Ol' Blue Eyes, Chairman of the Board...Francis Albert Sinatra, the only son of Italian immigrants, was born in Hoboken, New Jersey. He had four wives and three children. He began his musical career during the swing era then evolved into an idol of the bobby-sox generation.

Sinatra has sold more than 150 million records worldwide.[Source: Wikipedia]
