Tony Bennett's Columbia Records Catalog Added To iTunes

12/20/2012
.
(OP) Tony Bennett's entire Columbia Records catalog including all his singles, outtakes, rarities and more have been released on iTunes.

The newly remastered and digitized Tony Bennett - The Complete Collection album collection spans the entire career of the great American pop vocalist as documented in the albums and singles he's made for Columbia Records (beginning in 1952 through the present).

In addition to all of Tony's original albums, each with its original jacket design and original sequencing and, in many cases, bonus material, fans have access to newly curated collections -- "Rarities, Outtakes And Other Delights" (2 volumes) and "The Columbia Singles" (6 volumes).

"The Columbia Singles" brings together for the first time all of the singles Tony recorded for Columbia Records, the label he signed with in 1950. Most of the songs recorded in the early 1950s, "The Columbia Singles" includes the a-sides and b-sides that were not included on individual albums.

"Rarities, Outtakes And Other Delights" collects rare tracks, previously unreleased outtakes, guest appearances on other artist's albums, soundtrack songs and more beginning with the recently discovered 1946 V-Disc recording of "St. James Infirmary Blues" that "effervescent delight," which was Tony's very first known recording. Nestled among the "Rarities" are two tracks from another fabled concert Tony gave at the Latin Casino in Philadelphia with the Count Basie Orchestra, which was recorded and never released.

Tony Bennett fans will rejoice at the first digitization of On The Glory Road, a mythic session recorded in June 1962, at the height of his early 1960s career. A lost Tony Bennett masterpiece, the album was recorded, assigned a catalog number and assembled, only to be left on the shelf when Tony's "(I Left My Heart In) San Francisco" (originally the b-side to "Once Upon A Time") became a national hit and a compilation album of the same name was released instead. A smattering of tracks from Glory Road have been released but this allows fans to hear the whole album presented in its originally intended form.
