Moreover, the first few times I listened to him sing "One for My Baby" gave me chills right down my spine. But to remind you what an exciting and fun night it was, he quickly follows it up with another classic, "Fly Me to the Moon."
Nothing on this CD captures the moment like track 9, Sinatra's monologue. This was one of the best monologues out of the 2 weeks worth of concert monologues he gave at the Sands. He was charming, honest, poignant, and flat-out funny! And the crowd loved it, too!
(From what my memory recalls...)
"You know, people ask me, 'does Dean Martin really drink?' Well, let me tell you right now. He's a flat-out, unqualified drunk! If we had an Olympic drinking team, he would be the coach!"
Other times, he would talk about his upbringing, his life as a kid working as a river catcher at the docks. "This guy couldn't hit a bull's fanny with a bag of rice!"
His monologue reminds you why Sinatra is Sinatra.
If you are a Sinatra fan, and would love to own a gem that gave insight to Sinatra's life, personality and performance on stage, this album is the crown jewel. Not only is this album in my cd changer, it's on the top of the list on my iPod. =)

Sinatra's between song banter displays the expected level of charm, although the mavens of political correctness will wince several times while listening to some of the jokes in his rather long monologue. "Sinatra at the Sands" offers up almost an hour of live singing from Ol' Blue Eyes, once you subtract the talking, and shows that there are a few songs (e.g., "Luck Be a Lady Tonight") that you might actually prefer to hear Sinatra sing live. Final Note on Album Notes: The album notes by Stan Cornyn won the 1966 Grammy for Album Notes, his second year in a row for winning that award for a Sinatra album (See: "September of My Years"). Do they still give out that particular Grammy? Anyhow, I was vasilating between 4 and 5 stars for this review, but those album notes tip the scale up for sure.

One of Franks' best live recordings, engineered well, and the band (Count Basie) is spectacular.
I wish I was there that night it was recorded, but that was too long ago. Read more
I was disappointed. Much of this album has a "Phoned it in" quality that is beneath the King. I'd say he had a reasonably bad night of it. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Plantec
Love Basie, love the Quincy Jones arrangements. They really swing. Franks performance was excellent, except for 2 lengthy inane monologues we could have done without. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Dave
