Ol' Blue Eyes is Back + The Main Event
- Frank Sinatra
- Release: 23rd September 2016
‘Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back / The Main Event’ [EREDV1241] and ‘At The Royal Festival Hall / Sinatra In Japan’ [EREDV1242] are essential collections, all clearly bearing the hallmark of true quality. Full tracklisting follows.
‘Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back’ was first broadcast by NBC on November 18, 1973 and marked Frank Sinatra’s return to performing following his “retirement” in 1971. The show, featuring special guest Gene Kelly, was filmed in front of a live studio audience but manages to retain an intimate concert feel. Sinatra gets us underway with the newly recorded song “You Will Be My Music” and performs a new routine with Gene Kelly to a medley taking in “Can’t Do That Anymore,” “For Me And My Gal” and “New York, New York.” The show closes with a reprise of “You Will Be My Music” to a standing ovation and Ol’ Blue Eyes is most definitely back.
Packed with his incredible renditions of the songs that he made famous, ‘The Frank Sinatra Collection’ is a must for any Sinatra fan.
