***** Seine erste Nummer 1 nach 1955, ein wunderbares Konzeptalbum (und Cover-Artwork). Das Thema ist recht einfach: Reisen um die Welt, romantische Gefühle natürlich im Gepäck. Dafür gab es Gold!
Wichtiges zur Veröffentlichungspolitik, mal ausnahmsweise aus der Wikipedia kopiert:
"On the Road to Mandalay", based on Rudyard Kipling's poem Mandalay was replaced on some versions of the album after the Kipling family objected to Sinatra's interpretation. When the album was initially released in the United Kingdom, the song "French Foreign Legion" replaced "Mandalay", while the song "Chicago" (and "It Happened in Monterey" on some pressings) were used in other parts of the British Commonwealth. Sinatra sang the song in Australia, during a concert tour in 1959, and relayed the story of the Kipling family objection to the song and how the Australian release of Come Fly with Me came to contain "Chicago".
