Lately I'm wondering why Bob Dylan selected NOTHING from three highly regarded, essential Capitol albums by Sinatra - In the Wee Small Hours, Songs for Swingin' Lovers and Only the Lonely - for his "Sinatra" albums. First, let's see what he picked up from each Capitol records. Songs for Young Lovers - None Swing Easy - None In the Wee Small Hours - None Songs for Swingin' Lovers - None Close To You - P. S. I Love You, I Couldn't Sleep a Wink Last Night, There's a Flaw in My Flue (outtake) A Swingin' Affair - I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plans Where Are You - Where are You, The Night We Called It A Day, Maybe You'll Be There, Autumn Leaves, I'm a Fool To Want You, Where is the One? (hey, Bob seems to really like this one!) Come Fly with Me - None Only the Lonely - None Come Dance with Me - Day In, Day Out No One Cares - Stormy Weather, Here's That Rainy Day, Why Try to Change Me Now Nice'n'Easy - That Old Feeling, How Deep is the Ocean, You Go To My Head, Nevertheless Sinatra's Swingin' Session - None Come Swing with Me - That Old Black Magic, Sentimental Journey Point of No Return - When the World was Young, Somewhere Along the Way, These Foolish Things, As Time Goes By Dylan ignores several other Capitol albums than those three, but it stood out to me that he didn't pick up anything from critically-acclaimed, objectively essential albums of Sinatra. It looks like he avoided covering songs from them deliberately, while trying to pick up at least one song from every album, even swinging ones. He simply doesn't like anything on them much, or has some intentions? Let me hear how you guess.
