Frank Sinatra - Sinatra at the Sands

One more and then I'm off for while:

I picked this album up because I got it so cheap. One of the best buys I have ever made regarding CD's. Live albums don't get much better than this and this is a great testament to why Sinatra was one of the great entertainers of the 20th century. Great singer, excellent comedian with an immaculate timing and an ability to improvise. Not only are the songs great to listen, the jokes crack me up every time I hear them.

"People ask me if Dean Martin is an alcoholic. I can tell you he is an unqualified, one hundred percent drunk. If drinking was an Olympic sport he would be the coach of the US team!"

On top of Sinatra's great performance the band is in great swing as well. This album has one of the best moods in any album. You can almost feel being at the Sands. People who were there were very lucky to witness this.

I'm not really even into this sort of music in general but if you don't like this album, there's something wrong with you, not the album.
