Product Description

Celebrate one of the most important and beloved entertainers of our time with the 7-DVD box set Frank Sinatra: Concert Collection, which contains over 14 hours of television and concert performances from the '50s to the '80s, including 4 previously unreleased specials, an exclusive compilation of vintage performances, and a 44-page book featuring rare photographs and notes by Sinatra scholar Bill Zehme. The definitive collection of Frank Sinatra's musical legacy as captured on film.

Discs 1 and 2: A Man And His Music: The Collection A Man And His Music The 1st-ever Sinatra TV special, this 1965 performance features Nelson Riddle arrangements of "I've Got You Under My Skin," "Come Fly With Me," and more.

A Man And His Music Part II The 2nd annual TV special features "Fly Me To The Moon," "Luck Be A Lady" and "That's Life." Frank is joined by Nancy Sinatra for a duet of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'."

A Man And His Music + Ella + Jobim Ella joins Frank in a historic pairing of the two preeminent vocal talents of the era. Plus, Antonio Carlos Jobim accompanies Frank for an intimate medley of classics.

Sinatra: The Man And His Music Taking place 16 years after the first A Man And His Music special, this final installment features the legendary Count Basie and his orchestra on "Pennies From Heaven," and "Theme From New York, New York."

Disc 3 and 4: Around the World Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back This "comeback" special proves the Chairman hadn't lost a step. Features classic performances of "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "I've Got The World On A String," as well as a guest appearance by Gene Kelly.

Sinatra: The Main Event The Main Event was filmed live at Madison Square Garden. Sinatra dazzles the crowd with contemporary numbers such as "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life," "Let Me Try Again" and delivers with signature tunes "My Kind Of Town" and "My Way."

Sinatra In Concert At Royal Festival Hall Princess Grace of Monaco introduces Sinatra to the adoring crowd in this London concert, which features memorable performances of "Pennies From Heaven," and "One For My Baby."

Sinatra In Japan: Live At The Budokan Hall, Tokyo This incredibly rare concert has only ever been released in Japan. Entering his 70th year, Ol' Blue Eyes never sounded better. He commands the stage with the energy of a man half his age, delivering bravura performances of "The Lady Is A Tramp," and "Come Rain Or Come Shine."

Disc 5: Primetime Francis Albert Sinatra Does His Thing Frank features a medley of spirituals sung with Diahann Carroll and a swingin' pop interlude with then-chart-toppers The 5th Dimension.

Sinatra Sinatra casts a backward glance at some of the highlights of a storied career, backed by Gal Costa and His Orchestra. Also includes an early performance of "My Way."

Sinatra And Friends This rarely seen 1977 special features Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Natalie Cole, Loretta Lynn and John Denver, all of whom return one-by-one for a final embrace with Frank as he sings the Paul Anka-penned "Everybody Ought To Be In Love."

Disc 6: Concert For The Americas This 1st-ever U.S. release of this spectacular 1982 concert proves that even at age 66, Francis Albert Sinatra was still the undisputed Chairman Of The Board. This 90-minute performance features a memorable rendition of "Send In The Clowns" with guitarist Tony Mottola.

Disc 7: Bonus Disc Happy Holidays With Bing And Frank This spectacular color television event is packed with holiday classics and plenty of Christmas cheer.

Vintage Sinatra This `03 PBS special offers a look back at Sinatra's television performances from the '50s. He is in peak form on "Come Fly With Me," "Too Marvelous For Words" and "I've Got The World On A String" and more. This bonus disc also features ten previously unreleased TV clips, featuring performances of "Moonlight In Vermont," "The Road To Mandalay" and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars No need to be wary; this is TOP NOTCH SINATRA October 13, 2010
By Coleen
Yes, many of these concerts have been previously available, but they are currently ALL out of print (as of 10-2010). Much of the footage is NEW to DVD, and NEW to Sinatra fans. Over half of this box set features performances by Frank Sinatra in TOP FORM. These performances are treasured by Sinatraphiles all over the world. The greatest hour in this 7 disc set, and worth the price of admission alone, is the 1967 television special featuring Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Ella Fitzgerald. Music does not get more special, nor more classier than that lineup! Other high points are the saloon medleys from the 1966, '68 and '69 TV specials, all of the Man and His Music specials, the much sought after CONCERT FOR THE AMERICAS, and the excellent Ol' Blue Eyes is Back. The 1971 Concert at Royal Festival Hall is brilliant from start to finish, and features one of the all-time great Sinatra performances of "One For My Baby (One For the Road)". I could go on and on, but there are 7 discs here, folks, each with multiple shows on them! The price is a bargain, and you are getting SINATRA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Sinatra Collection October 26, 2010
Verified Purchase
The collection arrived today, October 26th, and just skimming through the DVDs is a thrill. Firstly, the packaging is consistently stunning; goodbye to the easy-to-smash cardboard/plastic packaging when some of these DVDs were released in the 1990s. Oh, and goodbye to those hyper-expensive out-of-print DVDs! Those 50 minute-long DVDs have been replaced by discs that average 2 hours each (The bonus disc is roughly two and a half hours long). The menus are very stylish and the booklet that accompanies the collection is well done. Someone got the message and the collection is well laid out and impeccably presented. The image quality is not Hi-Def, of course, and there's only so much that can be done to spruce up video tape. Still, the colours are vivid.

About that bonus DVD: besides including assorted early televison clips and a terrific PBS documentary with commentary by his children, there's a half hour Christmas special with Sinatra and Bing Crosby. This was filmed on motion picture stock, directed by Sinatra (!), with musical arrangements by Nelson Riddle, and - although filmed in 1957 for television - is in something resembling Technicolour; it has a colour palette of green-red-blue that reminds me of ancient Kodacolor family slides and home movies done on Ektachrome stock. Considering how regular colour television broadcasting was about a decade away, someone was thinking ahead. Well, there's your Sinatra Holiday Special, Clyde, complete with Sinatra and Crosby: hitting the toddies and, briefly, in Dickensian dress. It's Ring-a-Ding-Ding traditional - like a Christmas party on the set of "High Society," and so old fashioned I hope it winds up as a separate DVD, someday.

The other DVDs are great, too. Take your pick as to which YOU want to call his greatest. At $55.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Review from a very happy OWNER of the set..... November 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
I did not grow up a Sinatra fan...he was my mom's guy while I was a Beatles and Zeppelin era baby boomer. That said....I learned about the greats of songwriting by listening over and over to his music that my mom had in constant rotation in her home and learned that in most every case HIS was the definitive version...from Cole Porter on.

The first brace of programs on this well constructed and lovely set (SHOUT Factory really seems to hit everything they do right on the button and right out of the park) were previously released on woefully short single DVDs by Warner Bros and I'm very familiar with the programs and they vary in quality from must have to alright. The revelation for me on this set begins with "Concert For The Americas" which is a brilliantly executed and performed 90 minute set from the Dominican Republic in 1982 which finds the Chairman of the Board in great voice and seemingly on top of his game...for this era. He is not only in good voice he is clear headed ...crediting the songwriters and arrangers and just seemingly out to make a statement. And speaking of statements...his band/orchestra is killer and the drum solo that Buddy Rich takes on the Jet Song from West Side Story smokes just about every drum solo I've sat through over the years from the hundreds of rock concerts I've been to ...the guys tears it up!

The next big treat is the bonus disc with over 3 hours of goodies stretching back into the big Capital Years era of the 50's (His peak in my opinion).

Why did I pick this up? Well..my mom passed away this summer and for some crazy reason listening to Mr Sinatra doesn't make me sad but seems to make me feel close to her. The best thing I can say about this set is that SHE would have loved it..over and over...her favorite was with Ella and Jobim.

How can it be less than 5 stars?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good news for Sinatra fan ! September 22, 2010
Once I heard about that new item,and saw the programm, I instantly realized that it is, for the greatest part of the set, a re-issue of "Sinatra : A life in performance", released a few years ago in 2 dvd-set (1 of 10 + 1 of 3, including Concert for the Americas, The Fourty first years and Sinatra and Friends 1977). Undoubtfully, it is an absolutely must have for all fans of "The chairman of the board". I don't know the bonuses featured in that new DVD box but surely there are also gems.
I am certain that the SINATRA family has still many treasures in their vaults, to reveal, carefully, one by one...
