This is not Sinatra's best album of all time by all means. but it goes down relatively well with the audience over all because of his ill health . He will forever be remembered for his inhabitance and his charisma towards music. He has got to be the best American male singer to hit the music scene.

Anyone who was a fan of Frank Sinatra would love this Live cd. He is brilliant as usual and a great entertainer. I only had Let me try again on vinyl but now I can listen to it again. Would highly recommend.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 1 February 2008
After the long and irratating introduction by Howard Cosell on track 1 (they could have fitted another song in instead) you soon realise that this is still a high class album.

After this poor start 'The Lady is a Tramp' and 'I Get A Kick Out of You' quickly rescue matters and show that Sinatra's voice was still in fine shape, if not quite as good as 10 or twenty years earlier. Hardly surprising though as he was approaching 60 when this recording was made. However that classic timbre and his marvellous phrasing compensate for any slight deterioation in his voice. This natural talent is undiminished and a always a joy to hear. The other part of this album thats great are the big band (Woody Herman) and the arrangements, which are all impeccable.

Apart from his immense talent the other aspect of Sinatra that I love is the credit he gives to the songwriters and arrangers, whose songs and arrangements he so wonderfully sings. So whether its Cole Porter, Stevie Wonder or Don Costa all are given credit by Sinatra.

This isn't as good as 'Live at the Sands' or 'Songs for Swinging Lovers', but those two great albums aside this is still Sinatra near his best and that means you should own this. There won't be another Sinatra...

The technical quality, atmosphere and content of this album are such that you feel you are one of the audiance. Recorded in 1974 live, the build up and tribute introduction by Howard Cosell (track 1, 3 minutes) is a classic and scene setting foundation for what is to come. F.S. starts singing on track 2 bursting into the The Lady is a Tramp to the extacy of the expectant audiance. Of the few live concert albums available from F.S. this is a classic collection of popular standards and anthems performed live to a hot and buzzing audiance of the public and fellow stars. If this CD is for a gift or for yourself, the recipient will wear it out playing it over and over again. A video tape of the event is also available but the pictures in your head from listening to this ablbum are as good an experiance as you need. Tip, play loud!
