It Was a Very Good Year (4:27)

About this track

‘It Was a Very Good Year’ is a song composed by Ervin Drake in 1961 and subsequently made famous by Frank Sinatra. His version won the Grammy Award for Best Vocal Performance, Male in 1966.

Robbie Williams recorded this song in duet with Frank Sinatra. Williams sings the first two verses, and a recording of Sinatra is used for the vocals on the third and fourth verses. Williams explains this came about after one of his session musicians played his vocals to Sinatra’s family. This musician was purportedly a good friend of the family, and played with Sinatra on the original release of ‘It Was a Very Good Year’. Impressed by Williams performance, Sinatra’s family gave their permission for a digital mastered duet with Sinatra.
