I had difficulty making a simple donation because no e-mail address was provided until some bracelets were bought.

For anyone who wants to make a donation without a purchase the address is:

forum@sinatrafamily.com

I know I'll love the bracelets and if they're too big, won't they look great on my Korbel wine bottles!

Hello, I was one of the fortunate who was able to see the sinatra event at radio city music hall a few years back. It was a spectacular event and memorable for my entire family. I purchased the tickets and our age spread was from seven to eighty three! If the shows are anything like the NYC show then the U.K. is in for a real treat. My question is ( and I dont know if it can be answered in this forum), after the show Radio City was selling sid avery framed signed photos. One from the swingin session LP was quite nice. Are these available any longer? If so where can one be purchased.
Thank you and a Wonderful New Year to all.

I booked a trip to London just to get to see this and I'm now back :D. I loved London, the show was fantastic :) And I was luck enough to have bought a hat earlier in the day to wear to the show :D.

I shall always remember Wednesday 16th August ;)

Hi Nancy

I consider myself very lucky because i live just outside of London so i got to see the show three times! and the last one i saw was the closing performance. I only planned on seeing it once for my 16th birthday in April but there was so much going on and everything was so fantastic i didn't know where to look. I loved seeing all of the rare film footage but also the dancers and the band were just as amazing, seeing this show has made me want to become a dancer even more! It has given me even more drive. Seeing as it only had a limited run in London i was wondering whether they were going to release the show on DVD like they have done with shows like Cats, By Jeeves etc. I have seen some of the footage of the show on sinatra.com and i think it would be fantastic for the people who didn't get to see the show or couldn't get enough of it to see it.
Thank you for helping to put on such a marvolous show.

In Stores: November 22

Hollywood, California – October 25, 2005 -- December 12, 2005 marks the 90th anniversary of Frank Sinatra's birth. Combined, Frank Sinatra’s final studio albums, the immensely popular all-star collaborations Duets and Duets II, have sold more than four million units in the U.S. since their original 1993 and 1994 release. On November 22, Capitol/EMI Music Catalog Marketing presents Frank Sinatra - Duets and Duets II: 90th Birthday Limited Collector’s Edition, a new 2-CD commemorative package with both original Duets albums, plus a previously unreleased version of “My Way,” as sung by Willie Nelson and Sinatra.

Regarded by many as the greatest popular singer of the 20th Century, Frank Sinatra’s dynamic entertainment career spanned an unparalleled seven decades, and he became a household name around the world, also known as “Ol’ Blue Eyes” and “The Chairman of the Board.” From 1953 to 1960, Sinatra recorded more than 17 albums for Capitol Records. During Sinatra’s years with Capitol, he pioneered and perfected the idea of the “concept album” by recording and sequencing songs on his LPs to strike and complete a specific mood.

In 1956, Frank Sinatra was the first artist to record in the newly-built Capitol Studios at Hollywood & Vine in Los Angeles. In June and July 1993, Sinatra returned to his Capitol Records' Studio A home to record Duets, his first new album in more than nine years. He was joined by many of the world’s most popular contemporary recording artists for what was referred to as “The Recording Event of The Decade.” Artists including Charles Aznavour, Anita Baker, Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Gloria Estefan, Aretha Franklin, Kenny G, Julio Iglesias, Liza Minnelli, Carly Simon, Barbra Streisand, and Luther Vandross were paired with Sinatra for an album of standards, including many songs instantly associated with the Chairman of the Board.

Duets II, released in 1994, followed global sales of more than five million units and worldwide critical and popular acclaim for Duets. Duets II presented a musical extravaganza of the best international rock, jazz, pop, and country artists singing with Frank Sinatra. Jimmy Buffett, Neil Diamond, Lena Home, Chrissie Hynde, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Patti LaBelle, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Luis Miguel, Lorrie Morgan, Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt, Jon Secada, Frank Sinatra, Jr., and Stevie Wonder & Gladys Knight collaborated on creative new interpretations of songs, lyrics and arrangements that had been associated with Frank Sinatra throughout his extraordinary career.

For the recording of Duets and Duets II, Sinatra and his collaborators were accompanied by a 54-piece orchestra. The albums’ Musical Director and Conductor was Patrick Williams, one of the music and film industries’ most acclaimed conductors. Both albums also feature the work of another great talent, the world-renowned artist LeRoy Neiman. The albums’ original covers display Neiman’s specially commissioned paintings of Frank Sinatra, both of which are included in Duets – 90th Birthday Edition.

From his first recording sessions in the 1930s until his death in May 1998, Frank Sinatra earned global acclaim as a recording artist and conductor, film producer, director and actor, and radio and television personality. Sinatra’s impact on American culture endures to this day, reflected not only in the new music and countless young artists he’s inspired, but also as an icon of timeless suave cool.

Hello Nancy!!! Just curious if the "New" My Way duet vocal is taken from the 7/6/93 "Duets" Session #5. I know Mr. Sinatra did record "My Way" that night, and I believe it was previously used with Pavarotti on the "80th live" disc, and I am hoping it's that one we get to hear rather than one from decades ago. Also, I have heard there was some film shot in the studio during these sessions until the lighting proved annoying...does this footage indeed exist, and if so will it ever see the light of day? Being in my 20's, and growing up with an older Frank in the September of his Years, these albums mean a lot to me, critics be damned! "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry" and "One For My Baby" is worth the price alone. See you at La Dolce Vita, and if you ever need a young person at Sheffield, please let me know.
