A performance for the ages: Landmark 1962 vocal pop set established Bennett's career.
Can there really be a definitive album from a singer whose voice is one of the most immediately recognized and internationally cherished and whose command of songs is akin to the manner in which an able-bodied masseuse handles delicate muscle tissues? If so, then I Left My Heart In San Francisco is that record, the 1962 effort was a turning point for the great Tony Bennett and an all-time pop standard. Winner of two Grammy awards, the record contains Bennett's signature track as well as 11 other indelible classics. Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180-gram LP presents Bennett in the finest sound he's ever enjoyed. Amazingly, this landmark recording has lavished in the vaults over the years and longed for the restoration that meticulous engineering can bring.
