10. Frank Sinatra - 'Duets' (1993)
Yes, it was manufactured: a fading Ol’ Blue Eyes was not in the studio with any of the guest artists for their duets, but it ushered in a whole new way of remote recording and became Sinatra’s only triple-platinum album. Ramone followed the pattern again with Tony Bennett, who released his third set of duets, all produced by Ramone, last year. However, unlike Sinatra, Bennett was in the studio with the artists.
