'Nothing But The Bests' is an album that was released as a memorial of the Tenth Anniversay of Sinatra's death in 1998. This album is a bit ambiguous since it gives out the impression of being best-of collection, even though it is not exactly what it is.
Since it only focus on his works from 1960s - 1980s, it already fails as a career summary because many of his top10 hits from late 1950s (ie. "Learnin' the Blues", "Love and Marriage", "All the Way", etc.) are missing. It also misses a couple of top40 hits from 1960s such as "Pockeful of Miracles" and "Softly, As I Leave You". Nevertheless, all the tracks on this album are indeed among his best materials from the periods. Not only the big hits such as "Strangers In The Night", "That's Life", "Somethin' Stupid", and "My Way", but also the other classics including "Luck Be a Lady", "My Kind of Town", "It Was A Very Good Year", and "Theme from New York, New York".
For fans and listeners who want the one set summary of Sinatra's works still have to stick with 1997's 'The Very Best of', since it has almost everything since 1950s. But for casual listeners who familiar with his latter works, this collection is a better choice than 1991's 'Sinatra Reprise: The Very Good Years' since every tracks have been remastered and sound much better than any preivous releases.
