The Afternoon Croon, Episode 2

Frank Sinatra unwittingly started a trend in 1993 when he released his groundbreaking Duets album. This album featured Sinatra singing his classics with modern artists. With the popularity of that album, Sinatra released Duets II a year later.

Since then, many artists have copied that format. Tony Bennett has released two duets albums as well, plus albums of other collaborations including an awesome album with Lady Gaga entitled, Cheek to Cheek.

This episode of The Afternoon Croon features nothing but duets. Selected tracks from Frank Sinatra's Duets album, plus tracks from Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand and many more.
