My latest episode of Robert's Record Corner follows a surprise discovery made in Tulsa recently. My late dad's big Frank Sinatra record collection WASN'T lost in the Tulsa flood of 1985 after all. I picked out a few choice records to bring back for my (small) Sinatra collection -- then went shopping. And I found the greatest Sinatra record of all, his 1970 failure Watertown. It features the guy who wrote “Dazed & Confused,” and sounds like a lost Sinatra attempt to make a Pet Sounds. But a TV special was immediately scrapped, and Frank went onto other things.
It's amazing enough to replace OKLAHOMA SOONERS football as a way I "talk" with my dad.
