Ol' Blue Eyes is Back + The Main Event DVD

The Frank Sinatra Collection brings together some of Frank Sinatra’s finest performances on television and in concert. This release combines a television special and a concert from the early seventies.

Ol' Blue Eyes is Back - First broadcast by NBC on November 18, 1973, Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back marked Frank Sinatra’s return to performing following his “retirement” in 1971. The show, featuring special guest Gene Kelly, was filmed in front of a live studio audience but manages to retain an intimate concert feel. Sinatra gets us underway with the newly recorded song “You Will Be My Music” and performs a new routine with Gene Kelly to a medley taking in “Can’t Do That Anymore,” “For Me And My Gal,” and “New York, New York.” The show closes with a reprise of “You Will Be My Music” to a standing ovation and Ol’ Blue Eyes is most definitely back.

The Main Event - This concert, staged at New York’s Madison Square Garden, was broadcast by ABC as a television special on October 13, 1974. The show is introduced by Howard Cosell who highlights some of the many celebrities scattered through the audience. Despite the massive size of the venue Sinatra still manages to deliver an intimate performance featuring many of his classic songs and really gets in the swing of things when the audience start dancing in the aisles to “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown.” Frank Sinatra’s storytelling and anecdotes are as poignant as ever and other highlights include “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” and a show closing “My Way.”
