September of My Years is one of Frank Sinatra's triumphs of the '60s, an album that consolidated his strengths while moving him into new territory, primarily in terms of tone. More than the double-disc set A Man and His Music – which was released a year after this album – September of My Years captures how Sinatra was at the time of his 50th birthday. Gordon Jenkins' rich, stately, and melancholy arrangements give the album an appropriate reflective atmosphere. Most of the songs are new or relatively recent numbers; every cut fits into a loose theme of aging, reflection, and regret. Sinatra, however, doesn't seem stuck in his ways – though the songs are rooted in traditional pop, they touch on folk and contemporary pop. As such, the album offered a perfect summary, as well as suggesting future routes for the singer. [This version of the album was released with a live version of "This Is All I Ask," as well as the single version of "How Old Am I?"]

Walter Furry Lewis (1893-1981) was born in Greenwood, Mississippi, but lived virtually his entire adult life in Memphis, Tennessee. He recorded 25 sides between April of 1927 and September of 1929, and several albums in the 1960s for Folkways, Prestige, and other labels after being rediscovered by Country Blues researcher Samuel Charters. A period spent performing with a medicine show as a young man provided Furry with on-the-job training as a musician and entertainer. Furry was a study in contrasts - he was a stellar showman whose gift for storytelling never altogether made you forget how superb his guitar playing was.
