On July 23rd 1966 Frank Sinatra went to No.1 on the US album chart with Strangers In The Night.
The LP would be the most successful of his career, being certified Platinum for 1 million copies sold in the US and the title track would earn him two Grammy awards for Record Of The Year and Best Male Vocal Performance.
Combining pop hits with show tunes and standards, the album bridges classic jazz-oriented big band with contemporary pop. It became Sinatra’s fifth and final album to reach number one on the US Pop Albums Chart.
Additionally, released as a single, the title track reached number one on the pop singles chart, while Summer Wind has become one of Sinatra best-known songs, making numerous film and television appearances in the years since its release.
