As one of the 20th century's most iconic entertainers, Francis Albert Sinatra made an indelible mark on the world. In the 10 years since his passing, Sinatra's legacy not only endures but also continues to grow in stature. As the first initiative under the newly established Frank Sinatra Enterprises (FSE), a partnership between the Sinatra Family and Warner Music Group, FSE has partnered with Reprise, Warner Home Video, MGM Home Entertainment, Turner Classic Movies, and the United States Postal Service to commemorate the Chairman of the Board, whose music and movies have an everlasting impact on popular culture. The month-long celebration will include the release of all-new CD and DVD collections, a television film festival and specials and a commemorative stamp.

On May 13, Reprise will release Nothing but the Best, a single-disc collection from Sinatra's Reprise Years that features 22 classic cuts remixed and remastered from the original master tapes, plus a previously unreleased recording of “Body And Soul" featuring a new arrangement. The compilation will be available in physical and digital formats, online at franksinatra.com, and in more than 7,000 Post Offices across the country. For a limited time, each CD will contain a collectible, commemorative Sinatra stamp with official USPS first-day issue cancellation. The stamp was unveiled in December 2007 by the U.S. Postal Service and will go on sale May 13.
