Maybe the best Sinatra concert released in DVD format.
If you've seen him in 1971 in the SINATRA IN CONCERT release and get impressed,and then the breathtaking MAIN EVENT from his 1974 Ne York's Madison Square Garden,and even if you had the chance to enjoy the amazing show given at the Budokan Arena in Tokio,
Japan,in 1985(SINATRA IN JAPAN,another dvd release),then chek out thes new item.Don't let the dates fool you.It's 1982,Frank is 66 years old but sings and swings like in the legendary Capitol days...even better.His voice sounds strong and sure,he travels along a wonderful career of forty years filled with marvellous melodies and huge worldwide hits.He's in an excellent mood and jokes constantly with the audience.The sound of the Buddy Rich orchestra,conducted by Vincent Falcone Jr.-an usual collaboration of the Sinatra stuff in those years is jazzy and fresh.There are no strings,but you really don't mind,except in tracks like George Harrison's SOMETHING...the amazing Nelson Riddle arrangement made for the 1979 TRILOGY album is definitive and undisputable.Buddy himself takes an excitin ten-minutes segment to demonstrate his artistry with the drums.At the end of his solo,a version of the WEST SIDE STORY theme THE JET SONG,you can hardly breathe!!
Another memorable segment comes when The Chairman of The Board and the incredible guitarist Tony Mattola join to do versions of SEND IN THE CLOWNS and QUIET NIGHTS OF QUIET STARS.What a magical,hypnotizing moment.
A must not only for a true Sinatra fan,but for any music fan

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinatra-Comcert For The Americas 16 April 2010
Format:DVD
Vintage Sinatra. Sinatra at the top of his game,singing his songs as only he can. The man was in a great mood and this was reflected in his performance. The sound on the DVD was fabulous. This dvd is probably one of the best live performances of Sinatra available to the public.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC PERFORMANCE REMASTERED BEAUTIFULLY! 10 April 2010
Format:DVD
For many years, we Sinatrphiles have enjoyed this concert. First as a TV special, then as a bootleg video, then an obscure "official" VHS stereo video, and (in some countries) finally as an "official" DVD release. This latest edition is much clearer and cleaner in appearance and the sound is greatly improved over the stereo VHS version. It's a winner all-the-way! Buddy Rich's solo on his band's famous "West Side Story Medley" is one for the ages.

P.S. I am so glad they left in Mr. S's fine "off-mike" comment to Vinnie Falcone about how much he loved singing "Strangers in the Night"!!!! :O

Concert For The Americas [DVD]

I am delighted that I bought this DVD.
This is Sinatra at his best even though he was in his early sixties.
The choice of songs are excellent and I had a most enjoyable time watching it.
I would recommend this DVD to any Sinatra lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sinatra Superb 28 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
In my opinion this Frank Sinatra concert is the tops---lavish and beautifully produced-and Sinatra in great form-when you purchase this DVd--keep it under lock and key---safe and ready for the next time you view it,and you certainly will do so---entertainment for the whole family---a rarity inthis day and age--
The title for this great DVD should be -A Concert For all--(Not just the Americas)-there will never be it's like again---one thing I do know--when I want to watch it again-i can go straight to it--the key is---Ah -that would be telling--so go to it and get your own--great stuff----//

Magical!

Frank Sinatra was for me the best singer EVER!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality, 5.1 Surround 27 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
As a big Sinatra fan, I am trying to collect some live performances of his on DVD. Apparently, there is a lot of poor quality stuff out there, but this does NOT belong in this category. This is a great concert in the Dominican Republic. Not only is Sinatra in top vocal shape, he is also in a great mood on that day and that reflects in his performance which is sensational, backed by a wonderful orchestra under Buddy Rich. The colour and picture quality of the DVD is good, and the sound is great. You have two options with the sound, 2.0 Stereo and 5.1 Surround. If you have a 5.1 system, select the 5.1 Surround option, dim the lights, pour yourself a drink, TURN THE VOLUME UP and enjoy!

Along with the excellent "MAIN EVENT" at Madison Square Garden, this is worth buying.

I was looking forward to seeing this dvd but was very disappointed. This is NOT Sinatra at his best. He struggles to hold a note and doesn't create his usual rapport with the band. Read more
