Frank Sinatra - Sing And Dance

Cut Using Original Analogue Mix-down Masters by Chris Bellman and Andreas Meyer! Strictly Limited To 5,000 Numbered Pressings

Two 45-rpm 1STEP LPs pressed by RTI on VR900 Supreme Vinyl

New lacquers cut after each run of 500 pressings

Distinctive Impex 1STEP packaging featuring a gorgeous tip-in 36-page booklet with exclusive photography and period graphics, an expanded historical essay by Charles L. Granata

A heavy-stock two-sleeve Monster Pack jacket by Stoughton Printing and a luxe colour-matched slip case

We are beyond thrilled to announce the release of a very special limited edition of Frank Sinatra’s historic Sing and Dance with Frank Sinatra on Impex 1STEP

Their all-analogue 2-LP set adds further narrative substance and sonic greatness to The Voice’s first big-band jazz long-play vinyl “concept” album

33.3 release was a landmark reissue, but this is a whole other level

Like all Impex 1STEPs, this audiophile recording is pressed at 45-RPM on high-definition, VR-900 Supreme vinyl for incredible clarity, immediacy and a tonal depth that virtually mirrors the original monophonic master tape.

Additionally, the tapes and discs they mastered from have rarely been used by other labels, delivering the original recording sessions closer than releases whose tapes have gone through mastering chains over and over.

Silent, flat surfaces provide for near-perfect audio playback without distracting non-fill issues.

Exclusive to the Impex 1STEP edition are two previously unreleased bonus recordings and an extended version of the “It All Depends On You” Session + Take, where Sinatra capably arranges the musicians in real time

The luxurious 1STEP packaging includes a gorgeous 36-page full-colour booklet with expanded historical liner notes, unique photos and graphics, and a deluxe slipcase.

It provides an excellent listening experience and a “coffee table book” for your living room or den!

 The 1STEP Process

The Impex 1STEP process relies on short, tightly-controlled runs that require a new lacquer after each 500 pressings.

This unforgiving format has the lacquer skipping the regular father-mother process, going right to a single convert and then pressing.

Though this dramatically increases mastering and production costs, it also assures each run is more consistent from disc to disc, with less noise, clearer details and deeper bass.

Reducing production complexity to just a single “convert” disc between the lacquer and the press greatly improves groove integrity, diminishes non-fill anomalies and increases signal integrity from the master tape to your system.

What They Do

You live for this. The anticipation of pulling open the heavy-plastic outer sleeve. The sensation of removing the disc from its heavy-board, tip-on jacket. The heft of the 180-gram vinyl disc sliding into your hand. The satisfaction of the perfectly flat LP becoming one with the platter. The astonishment at the record’s silence surface. And then, that sound – the brilliant, vivid fidelity – and the euphoric emotion of being there at the creation: inside hallowed recording spaces such as Columbia’s 30th Street Studio, Capitol Studio A in Hollywood, or Abbey Road in London. From the moment the stylus hits the groove, you’re enveloped by amazing performances captured in extraordinary, life-like sound. Music with unprecedented transparency, immediacy and richness of tone. Pristine sound that comes as close to the original analog master tape as is humanly possible. Deep feelings abound as you experience the impeccable craftsmanship of an IMPEX RECORDS audio disc. This is the reward you’ve earned for a deep-seated love of music, your commitment to superior sound and the countless hours and prodigious capital you’ve invested in building a playback system that can transport you to your musical Nirvana. At IMPEX RECORDS, we make 180-gram LPs, 24K Gold CDs and Super Audio Compact Discs of uncompromising quality: exceptional products designed for discriminating listeners with a passion for music and sound. Our love for music, and respect for the art and science of sound recording, guides and informs every decision we make. Our dedication leads to obsessing over every detail of the craft for one purpose: to put you front-row center in the studio, club or concert hall to encounter great music exactly as it was recorded, with the highest of fidelity
