As singers of the 20th C. go, for me, the only one who is in Frank's league is Om Kalthoum (or however you wanna transliterate her name). And he's pretty much the only other one in her league.

This is a bachelor weekend for me as Sue is visiting her family
out of town. I'm playing the best vocals I have and that begins with
Frank. I'd never heard Frank live until Sue bought front row tickets
for his performance in Richmond Va. It was my birthday present and
what a surprise it was. Frank was overcome by the moment and had to
be taken to the hospital as his performance came to an end.
I've always had a pecking order regarding the best male - female
vocal artists. Being 66 years of age, I've had enough time, if not
exposure to the wide range of artists the ARSC LISTERS have had, to
settle on those whom I choose to listen to.
Tonight I listened to Frank Sinatra Duets. I heard the great
contemporary singers paired with Frank , "aka" Nat King Cole and Tina
Cole. FRANK first, #2,3,4 ? Male , Female.
