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. =)
P.S. For those who think that Sinatra and his music is for one-time Bobbysoxers and the (now) mature, think again. I am 22 years old, and although most of my peers do not share this interest in Sinatra, I wish more would.
For those looking for Sinatra swingin' at his best, pick up "Songs for Swingin Lovers." Every song on this album is a hit.
For those looking for early Sinatra crooning and swooning, start with "Falling in Love With Frank Sinatra & Tommy Dorsey." Then you might want to move on to his Columbia years, "Portrait of Sinatra: Columbia Classics." There are many, many more albums to choose from, but these albums, you can listen to over and over again and appreciate Sinatra in the 20s, 30s thru 70s, 80s.
On the bright side, you can come as close to this experience by listening to great albums such as this one and picture yourself in the middle of the event!
You see, I have never gotten the chance to experience the Golden Age of Vegas because back then I was just a child; however, 1930s / 1940s style of Jazz / Vocals are one of my favorite styles of music. Sinatra is practically a legend that I have never gotten to see him live.
I got Sinatra’s best albums and I have seen his best concerts on film, but let me tell you something, this album is the best of the best.
Sinatra does his jokes routines, chit chats, cheap talks and jives all over this album. He really gets the crowd laughing and going. There are humor pieces in between his songs that makes you crack up! He tells many stories and laughter but at this point of life, his voice was at its prime. His voice is like silk, smooth and lovely. The performance which he does on these songs are simply marvelous.
The songs in this album are a selection of his best songs ever. The songs are superbly performed and for live performances, they got all of them herbs and spices! This is pure Swing and pure Jazz.
Look, Sinatra and them nights will never come back and neither you are able to time travel yourself to them nights, so do yourself a favor, the best that you can do is to listen to this album and by doing so, fly out of your body for a short while and come fly with me and together we fly away back to 1966 Vegas at Sands. I reserve a nice seat right at the front stage and we can forget about this world and drown ourselves in to a world of Swinging Jazz from the days where Fashion, Music and Life was pure class!
This is a trip must taking and it is only possible with this album. Go for it; take walk back to the era of Cool Classic Swing!
What a night that was! What a fabulous show it must have been, sitting there in the audience with Sinatra at the Sands, and with such an amazing orchestra. I wasn't there, but listening to this album, with intros, commentary, songs, instrumental interludes and all, it's a terrific experience every time.
If you're a fan of Sinatra at all, this one is a must-have.
I wish I was there that night it was recorded, but that was too long ago. I'm glad they recorded this concert.
