Tony Bennett's Entire Columbia Records Catalog Available on iTunes
Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings/RPM Records announce the recent addition of thirty-seven deep catalog album titles to the online discography of legendary recording artist Tony Bennett. Available now on iTunes: Tony Bennett's entire Columbia Records catalog including his Columbia Records singles, outtakes, rarities and more.
The newly remastered and digitized Tony Bennett album collection spans the entire career of the great American pop vocalist as documented in the albums and singles he's made for Columbia Records (beginning in 1952 through the present).
In addition to all of Tony's original albums, each with its original jacket design and original sequencing and, in many cases, bonus material, fans have access to newly curated collections -- "Rarities, Outtakes and Other Delights" (2 volumes) and "The Columbia Singles" (6 volumes).
Alongside the digital editions of the complete Tony Bennett album collection, iTunes offers ebook and enhanced ebook editions of Tony's memoir "Life Is A Gift" and "The Zen of Bennett," the feature length documentary conceived and created by Danny Bennett, Tony's son and longtime manager.
With millions of records sold world-wide and platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett has received seventeen Grammy Awards -- including a 1995 Grammy for Record of the Year for his "MTV Unplugged" CD which introduced this American master to a whole new generation -- and the Grammy Lifetime Award. His 2007 prime-time special, "Tony Bennett: An American Classic," won seven Emmy Awards. His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950's, including such chart-toppers as "Because of You," "Rags to Riches," and a remake of Hank Williams "Cold, Cold Heart." He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including "I Wanna Be Around," "The Good Life," "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)" and his signature song," I Left My Heart In San Francisco," recorded 50 years ago this coming January 2012. This song garnered him two Grammy Awards. Tony Bennett is one of a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and now in the first two decades of the 21st century. He has introduced a multitude of songs into the Great American Songbook that have since become standards for pop music. He has toured the world to sold out audiences with rave reviews whenever he performs.
