LP Artwork: Songs for Swingin' Lovers!

The seminal Songs for Swingin' Lovers! The very first Frank Sinatra album I ever heard. My mother only had two of his LPs (this one and a re-issue of Close to You). Sitting doing my homework while this played in the background, I very quickly became hooked!

Here are the two covers most closely associated with this timeless Sinatra release.

This week's theme is each artist's version of a sad song in contrast with a more melancholy number. I took the small liberty of including Swinging Down the Lane as a happy song; the upbeat arrangement camouflages the song's actual sentiment.
