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?
The way the TV specials are organized doesn't always make sense (i.e., "Ol Blue Eyes Is Back" thrown onto a disc with 3 live concerts called "Around the World"); and the picture quality isn't as much an improvement over the VHS tapes as I hoped. But the amount of quality material--some of it previously unavailable, like the "Sinatra and Friends" special--merits 5 stars.
Well done, Sinatra family enterprises.
