Released in 1970, Watertown is a lost masterpiece & turning point for Frank Sinatra: a concept album written by Bob Gaudio & Jake Holmes. It has gone through a re-evaluation in recent years & is now considered one of Sinatra's finest recordings. All tracks are newly mixed from the original session tapes. LP edition features original 10-track sequence, a package with all original lyrics, a printed sleeve with new liner notes, track-by-track breakdown from Mr. Gaudio, & a 12" X 24" poster.
Producer Charles Calello arranged musical backdrops that conveyed the despair of the lyrics. Weaving together prominent electric guitars, keyboards, drum kits, and light strings, Calello uses pop/rock instrumentation and production techniques, but that doesn't prevent Sinatra from warming to the material. In fact, he turns in a wonderful performance, drawing out every emotion from the lyrics, giving the album's character depth.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic.com, 4.5/5 stars
