1.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTED
Perhaps I am missing the boat here or perhaps my Sinatra collection is too extensive but there was very little in this book that I have not seen before. If you have watched "Lady in Cement" and "The First Deadly Sin" then you really do not need to buy this book. Way too many pictures of these 2 movies. Other than some candid behind the scene concert shots I found nothing...

If you have watched "Lady in Cement" and "The First Deadly Sin" then you really do not need to buy this book. Way too many pictures of these 2 movies. Other than some candid behind the scene concert shots I found nothing of interest here. It is a beautiful book; very well presented but the most personal photo in the whole thing is the one on the cover. A lot of money for movie set pictures, folks.

3.0 out of 5 stars There are better books on Ol' Blue Eyes....., June 15, 2008

This review is from: Sinatra: Frank & Friendly (Hardcover)
The book is of fine quality, but the content covered is in later, not quite as interesting, years.

The photography is superb (Terry O'Neill) and the commentary is simple. The materials used in the book are unique; matte pages with glossy photos, which almost make it appear as though the author actually attached original prints to the pages. Classy.

In my opinion, the time period covered in this book shows a Sinatra on the downhill side of his career, and isn't quite as interesting as his earlier (ie: Capitol) years. However, the years that are represented here are done well, and show yet another side to a very complex man.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pictorial Book on Sinatra, January 9, 2008
This review is from: Sinatra: Frank & Friendly (Hardcover)
I had the great pleasure of seeing Terry O'Neill's exhibit at the Time Warner Building in New York..This book is the next best thing to seeing the blown up images of such captivating images of Sinatra. O'Neill has a knack of capturing raw emotions. You see the pensive and reflective Sinatra, the happy and jovial Sinatra, the cosummate performing Sinatra, the sensitive Sinatra and the passionate Sinatra...If you are a fan of Mr. Sinatra it is a must have for the collection...Amy

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality pictures, but many of them are staged and from Frank's later years., November 20, 2013

This review is from: Sinatra: Frank & Friendly (Hardcover)
I'm a huge fan of Frank. I stumbled across this book looking for random Sinatra stuff here. A used copy was a whole penny, so I figured what the heck - why not? I got a nice hardcover book - an old library copy - but it was in excellent shape. Probably because nobody ever checked it out. It's not a very deep book - most of the photos are from when Frank was much older, and many of them are staged. Very few candid photos. The quality is excellent, however, as many of the pages are thick, glossy stock. Really nice. But many of the photos just show Frank when he was older, and although I appreciate them, certainly other decades should be taken into consideration for a book called "Sinatra: Frank & Friendly"...

This is one of those books that treats you to a relaxed Sinatra through the eyes and camera of Terry O'Neil. Excellent photos of a complicated singer.
