Product Description

Product Description

Live archive release from the legendary crooner. Tony Bennett's ''moment of truth'' - his first-ever headlining performance in Las Vegas - is beautifully captured on Live At The Sahara: Las Vegas, 1964. Previously included as part of The Complete Collection box set released in 2011, this rare recording captures an important milestone in Bennett's unquestionably legendary career. Bennett's unique set is punctuated by not only his most show-stopping hits ('San Francisco,' 'I Wanna Be Around,' 'One for My Baby (and One More for the Road'), but overlooked pop standards like 'It's a Sin to Tell a Lie' and Cole Porter's 'From This Moment On' from the musical Kiss Me, Kate. There's even a brilliant, only-in-Vegas comedy routine from Milton Berle, Danny Thomas and Mickey Rooney in the middle of the set! Live At The Sahara: Las Vegas, 1964 is more than yet another brick that paved Bennett's golden road to musical immortality: it's an era-defining moment to be treasured for generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Remarkable Tony Bennett 8 Oct 2013
By lamont cranston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As the liner notes make clear, this was Tony Bennett's Las Vegas debut complete with the palming of tips to the maitre 'd, the tinkling of cocktail glasses in the background and the waft of cigarette smoke which practically belches through the speakers as if the listener has been transported back in time to 1964 and plunked right into the Congo Room of The Sahara at showtime. Comparisons to the also wonderful and far more serious Live at Carnegie Hall, which was recorded two years earlier in 1962, are unfair except that the awe and slight nervousness you could hear in Bennett's Carnegie Hall performance (wow! here I am at Carnegie Hall! Born in Astoria and end up headlining on 57th Street! Who knew?) is replaced by two more years of confidence and hit records under his belt. The excitement on the part of all in the far more relaxed confines of this nightclub is palpable. Even Milton Berle, Danny Thomas and Mickey Rooney make cameo appearances! Buried for years in Columbia's vaults and more recently in the Barnes & Noble $500 complete box, this album is finally available solo and in all its glory. Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars some messed up tracks 14 Oct 2013
By John Bourke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album. Mr. Bennet's voice is at it's peak. The problem is that the track I LEFT MY HEART IN SAN FRANCISCO cuts out before the end. The next two tracks are less than a minute ans cut out as well. Other than that I would give it 5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Recorded in a barn? 15 Oct 2013
By Toxic Torgo - Published on Amazon.com

Sound quality is not so great. The Sahara must have been an airplane hangar, back in the day. Still a fun listen, and great for nostalgia's sake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tony Bennett 1964 21 Feb 2014
By Steven Sweet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A show from the golden days of Vegas. You can tell it is an older recording. Really full of energy and a swinging band.
5.0 out of 5 stars tony bennett sings the hell out of every song here. I've never heard him better. 26 Jun 2014

If i could give this album 6 stars, by God i would. Tony Bennett here is at his finest, and the people behind him are wonderful. The audio is first rate, and captures the moment to the last detail. Sit back, turn up the volume, and let tony wow you with this album.
