"Ring a ding ding" represented the first album of Sinatra's new Reprise label in 1961. For his Reprise debut Sinatra wisely decided to record an album of mid tempo swingers rather than kick off the new label with a ballad set.

The title track written by the dream team of Van Huesen/Cahn is a great swing track and although not as good as some of their best tracks it's a catchy upbeat number which gets better with every listen. "Let's fall in love" and "Be careful it's my heart" "Ive got my love to keep me warm" and "The Coffee song" are also great tracks. "Ring a ding ding" is definitely worth adding to your collection !

A whole disc of unreleased live in the studio work in progress gives the listener a unique intimate experience of Frank in the studio
