Well, it's a 2 dsc dvd I was given to as a christmas gift about 5 or more yrs back by my mother & 1st first disc covers his early life & career, although he's my #1 idol, i wasn't crazy about the 40's FRANK though.  Flopper  tires & hair, but the 2nd is TREMENDOUS starting around his FROM HERE TO ETERNITY OSCAR & AVA era    & His huge make-over.  Trust me it covers everything, even his connections a oy with the mob It can't [pssible everything, or it would obviously be 3 discs  as to Se[itatone, he loathed rock 'noll, actually think it at first the end of the word   It was hard for all concerned to get FS to do that legendary one bit oppouite ELVIS

 

& In between check out the finest concert i've ever seen & by anyone

Yeah, I knew Sinatra didn't like rock'n'roll,  But I'm sure there were detractors to him in HIS early days, feeling what he was doing was terrible too.  Even in it's earlier days, Louis Armstrong hated Be-Bop style jazz.  Calling it "Ju jitsu" music, or simply "Chinese" music.  Which caused great kidder Charlie Parker to record an album with a label he didn't belong to and (for legal reasons) calling himself Charlie CHAN, and posing for the cover art wearing one of those pointed straw hats that Chinese "coolies" used to wear back in the 1800's.  :D  "Pops" relented years later and came to appreciate Be-Bop for the musicianship required to play it good.  And even Frank, although mistakenly attributing it to Lennon-McCartney, claimed to like George Harrison's triumphant classic "Something".

Yes, Sinatra did come to like George Harrison's "Something" quite a bit, recording it in the studio not once but twice.  The 1970 version was arranged by Lennie Hayton, husband of Lena Horne, and the 1979 version was arranged by frequent Sinatra collaborator Nelson Riddle.   And Frank performed "Something" frequently in concert, calling it "the greatest love song of the last 50 years."

Harrison loved Frank's performances of the song.  When George toured Japan in the early 90s, his last live performances, he adopted Frank's lyrical change, "You stick around, Jack...."  (Harrison's modified version can be heard on his LIVE IN JAPAN album.)

Here are Frank and George together in 1968, at a Sinatra recording session.  (The picture also shows Patti Boyd Harrison and, to the right,  Beatle friend and aide Mal Evans.)

Sepia -   Frank Sinatra did record two Disco numbers back in the day!!! True. They were recorded in 1977.  See below. They were included in the massive 20 CD "Suitcase" retrospective.

BingFan - I never considered myself much of a Sinatra fan until I saw him live at Resorts International in Atlantic City. When he sang SOMETHING he pulled up a music stand and I thought, "Wow he doesn't know the words!" Then I heard him sing it, I was a fan ever since. I have gone on to collect every single take that's available of every song he ever recorded!

Eep!

Wonder if Frank actually did that in the studio, of if his vocal track was lifted from other sources and placed on those platters.  ;) 

You know something similar was done to make THIS album possible----  :D

I'm pretty sure I have all or almost all of Frank's recorded work, too.  Once I got started on Sinatra, I wanted it all.   I may have missed a stray alternate take here or there (simply because I didn't know about it), but I've at least tried to get everything.  (The Columbia "blue box," the Reprise "suitcase," all of the Capitol albums including "Tone Poems," various compilations with otherwise-unreleased recordings -- going so far as to buy one compilation twice because a bonus disc of the Sinatra/Crosby/Waring Christmas album had been added.)

You did the right thing by seeing a Sinatra concert when you had the chance.  I could have gone to at least one or two myself, but I had it in my head that his latter-day performances would be a disappointment because he was past his prime.   What a mistake!  Sure, he was past his prime, but he still knew how to "sell" a song.  Only after Frank had retired did I learn from live recordings of his late concerts that his "not-prime" years were still full of great performances.

But I'll always have his recordings, which I never tire of.

There are many session tracks available out there and can be found on eBay from time to time.  Two great CD's that showcase Sinatra's Capitol sessions are From The Vault and From The Vault 2.

I have also collected the entire Bing Crosby output on Jonzo, Sepia and Bing Crosby Enterprises.

I saw Sinatra at ringside in Las Vegas over 40 times from 1988 to his last Vegas shows at the MGM in May 1993.  

I had been to many concerts before seeing Frank, but every one I have attended since then has only disappointed me.

Once you've seen the best, every one else is just kid stuff.

I'll keep my eye out for the From the Vault discs -- they sound interesting!  I also have all of the Jonzo and Sepia Bing Crosby discs, and most of the BCE discs.  (There are still a few of the latter that I haven't gotten yet.)  While not every recording from either singer is a masterwork, they're all worth hearing at least once, and there are enough masterworks to fill many, many hours.

Yes, Frank was the best at what he did.  (Not that there aren't others worth hearing, too!)
