What I ended up getting was not only a great collection of Sinatra songs, but maybe a little insight in what going to a Sinatra show in Vegas was like. Sinatra opens up with some of his more mainstream songs ("Come Fly With Me", "I've Got You Under My Skin", "Fly Me To The Moon") which, despite the "live" environment, still sound as familiar as traditional recordings. After "Fly Me To The Moon", the orchestra (led by the legendary Count Basie) plays a little instrumental as Sinatra takes a sort of intermission. What follows is a nearly 12 minute monologue of Sinatra being "Sinatra" - talking about his dad, Dean Martin, and just opening up to his audience. Sinatra has a charm and charisma during this segment that makes it easy to understand how he was able to cross over into a film career.
Many fans hate suggesting "greatest hits" albums to newbies because a collection of songs that were popular to the mainstream doesn't necessarily give you a good picture of the performer. This album takes care of that issue - giving the listener enough mainstream/familiar songs to draw them in, while still giving the listener the actual Sinatra "experience". Highly recommended, especially for those looking for their first Sinatra album.
I wish I was there that night it was recorded, but that was too long ago. I'm glad they recorded this concert.
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.
