Duets made history for its cutting-edge recording techniques, it's renowned stars and for being one of the top-selling albums of 1993, putting the then 77-year-old Sinatra at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard charts between Pearl Jam's Vs. and Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell II.

The highly successful follow-up, Duets II, was released the next year. Duets II includes Jimmy Buffett, Neil Diamond, Lena Home, Chrissie Hynde, Antonio Carlos Joblm, Patti LaBelle, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Luis Miguel, Lorrie Morgan and others.
