Frank Patrick Herbert (8 de outubro de 1920 – 11 de fevereiro de 1986) foi um autor de ficção científica norte americano de grande sucesso comercial e de crítica. Ele é mais conhecido pela obra Duna, e os cinco livros subseqüentes da série. A saga de Duna trata de temas como sobrevivência humana, evolução, ecologia, e a interação entre religião, política e poder. Arthur C. Clarke escreve que Dune foi "uma obra única de ficção... Não conheço nada comparável a ela exceto O senhor dos Anés." Dune foi condecorado com o prêmio Nebula em 1965 e dividiu o prêmio Hugo em 1966.

This remastering comes from the original analogue tapes and has been transferred at high resolution digital quality to capture the very best sound from the tapes. In consultation with the original engineer Chris Parker, we have slightly adjusted the balance of the Trio (in Act 3) to reflect the quality of sound that was desired but not achieved at the time of recording. This recording was originally made as a mono recording by Douglas Larter, with a stereo test version engineered by Chris Parker. It is this stereo test version which has been used for this remastering. Despite the early experimental nature of this new ‘stereo’ technology, this recording is captured in astonishingly vivid sound and is a testament to the experience, understanding and skill of both the musicians and engineers of the time.’ Simon Gibson, Remastering Engineer at Abbey Road Studios.

Released by Reprise just in time for Valentines Day 2009, Seduction: Sinatra Sings of Love is a good collection of 22 highlights with an additional ten cuts on the two-disc "deluxe" edition from Sinatra's Reprise recordings. While there are surely some hits here "Some Enchanted Evening," "They Can't Take That Away from Me," "I Get A Kick Out of You," "I've Got You Under My Skin" what's noteworthy about this collection is that it isn't just a recycling of familiar songs, it digs a little deeper into his catalog (even finding a previously unissued "My Funny Valentine") to create a compilation that isn't necessarily for aficionados, but rather Sinatra fans who already know the big tunes and want to dig a little deeper (without buying albums). In this regard, it's a worthy compilation, delivering plenty of good music that is both good and fits the seductive mood of the title.
