Sinatra’s Capitol Records era began in April 1953 and lasted until March 1962. When he joined Capitol, Sinatra was considered a vocal liability and an emotional mess. But with the help of arrangers such as Nelson Riddle, Sinatra’s confidence was restored as he began to trust his instincts and call the shots. “From Here to Eternity” is Sinatra’s first session with Riddle and his strongest ballad from the period. Inspired by the film for which he won an Oscar—but not written for it—the song marked Sinatra’s “comeback” and peaked at #15 on the pop charts.
