- Release: 23rd September 2016
Continuing the worldwide centennial celebration for legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra, on 4 November 2016, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release another title in ‘The Frank Sinatra Collection’. On license from Frank Sinatra Enterprises (FSE), the definitive collection pulls together some of the finest performances on television and in concert from the greatest entertainer of the 20th century.
‘Happy Holidays With Frank & Bing’ / ‘Vintage Sinatra’ [EREDV1243] combines a classic Christmas special from 1957 with a compilation from his 1950s TV shows.
First aired on December 20, 1957, ‘Happy Holidays With Frank & Bing’ is a timeless Christmas favourite featuring the magical combination of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby in an early colour television special. The two legends swap Christmas carols, songs and stories, pay a musical visit to Victorian England and duet on some Christmas classics. The show finishes in inimitable fashion with “The Christmas Song” and “White Christmas” for pure festive perfection.
The ‘Vintage Sinatra’ compilation DVD brings together black and white footage taken from Frank Sinatra’s television shows in the 1950s with colour commentary and reminiscences from his three children: Nancy, Tina and Frank Sinatra Jr. It features performances of many of Sinatra’s most popular songs including: “Come Fly With Me,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “My Funny Valentine,” which he sings to a young Nancy, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “The House I Live In” and many more, all set into context by the anecdotes of Nancy, Tina and Frank Jr.
Packed with his incredible renditions of the songs that he made famous, ‘The Frank Sinatra Collection’ is a must for any Sinatra fan.
