I had the original USA editions of the 3 TV Specials contained in this DVD, plus I have the newly issued USA Sinatra Concert Collection, which also contains these 3 shows, and the Trilogy edition is by far the best video and audio quality. It seems some care was taken to give the best possible presentation, as opposed to the shoddy presentation on the Concert Collection box set. The PCM sound seems to have really been remastered, and well. On the USA edition there is meager Dolby Digital. Picture quality has detail and color on the Trilogy, but is ill defined and washed out in the box set.
I highly recommend that any Sinatra fan who wants the best presentation of these classic shows, gets this disc from Amazon UK. The price is also very attractive. I paid less than $20 shipped.

Very pleased - good DVD, bearing in mind age of recordings. Quick delivery. Makes you realise how good Sinatra was - what a voice.

Three TV shows from Sinatra at his best. A great selection of songs beautifully delivered. Occasionally Mr S gets a little too flip for my taste but mostly his manner is appropriate. The last session with Ella and A C Jobim is unsurpassable. He gives real respect to Ella who was a great singer, but not the greatest live performer, and to Tom Jobim who comes across as a very shy person.
The Picture quality on my DDVD was exceptional, for mid 1960s TV programmes, it suffered none of the colour problems mentioned in one of the other reviews and the remastered sound was very good. All far superior to the VHS versions from the 13 tape box set Which I previously owned. The value is superb.
Overall the best example of Sinatra's performances that I have seen.

Great to watch the great man as well as playing the CDs, the so called singers of today have so much to learn by watching his voice and breath control, his phrasing and his love of composers, lyricists, and backing musicians. A true giant

Format: DVD
I'm very disappointed in this release from Universal. The picture looks like it is in the horrible NTSC format. Luckily I still own the PAL DVDs for all three shows released by Warner Music Vision as part of the "Frank Sinatra In Performance" boxset.
The picture looks quite terrible on this new Universal release when compared alongside the older Warner versions. The picture is much darker and suffers colour bleeding, compression artefacts, jagged edges, etc. Just check out the pattern on the stage floor during Nancy Sinatra's performance of "On Broadway" there is a lot of distortion and there are also aliasing problems in the picture as well.
The sound has apparently been remastered in uncompressed PCM stereo for this release but I could not hear the difference with this new edition and the older ones on the Warner DVDs which are also in PCM stereo anyway.
So I would recommend you avoid this release from Universal and hunt down the original Warner editions instead for the much superior picture quality.

Great. Mother-in law loves it!! Keeps her happy and enthralled. Would recommend for any other Frankie enthusiasts of any age. But not a stellar contribution from Ella Fitzgerald. Not sure the marriage of her style with Sinatra's works.

Really enjoyed this classic Sinatra DVD a real gem. Unfortunately,
it will only play on my computer and not my Television.
Which is a great shame as the seats in my lounge are more comfortable.
