Henry Stone Congratulates Frank Sinatra – Cash Box (1965)



“Congratulations and continued success to “The Chairman Of The Board” from Tone Distributors, Inc. 495 S.E. Tenth Court. Hialeah, FL 305-887-7546,” so reads the text from page 42 of a 1965 edition of Cash Box magazine from Henry Stone to Frank Sinatra.

Stone and Sinatra were familiar with each other, often rubbing elbows at locations like the Fontainebleau on Miami Beach. As a distributor, Stone had long been involved with the Reprise Records label, Warner Bros, and its President, Mo Ostin.

In fact, in a 2013 interview, Stone recalled the time he had to explain to a phalanx of security goons who Mo Ostin was, and to let him backstage at a Sinatra show.
