I’m assuming that this was pretty early in Frank’s career. I gather that in later years he got his exercise in other ways…according to Robert Christgau his conquests included Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall, Mia Farrow, and the love of his life, Ava Gardner, he also went to bed with a dumbfounding profusion of starlets and prostitutes
A dumbfounding profusion? Now, as I can hear Sinatra saying as I type these words- that sure is a lot of broads.

Frank Sinatra Has a Cold is a seminal work of New Journalism written by Gay Talese for the April 1966 issue of Esquire magazine. Fans of Sinatra or lovers of good writing can read it here .

Gay Talese

This 1979 double album compiled recordings from Frank Sinatra’s work with Tom Jobim on Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim (1967) and Sinatra & Company (1971).
Purists note: The two tracks Drinking Again and Manhã De Carnaval featured here had no input from Jobim whatsoever.
I heard a story that on the 1967 album Frank was billed as Francis Albert Sinatra because the name of Antonio Carlos Jobim would look much bigger on the sleeve than just plain Frank Sinatra. Good job Tom didn’t use his whole name!
