The little Theatre Box will surprise you with its bold, big sound.
Sinatra is crooning in the background. “I like New York in June, how about you? I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?”
Frankly (sorry, couldn’t resist), I like what I’m hearing from the small box sitting on the filing cabinet in my home office. Impressive how clear and present the Chairman is on this Capitol recording (“How About You?”) released 59 years ago (Songs for Swingin’ Lovers!). Even more impressive, his voice is coming from a speaker that’s about half the size of a shoebox.
