    I'm the one who's off. I clicked in at post #2, and Bob said this in post #3:

    so I thought there was an open question about the potential available formats that could be easily answered. Sorry for the confusion.

    Ditto. I won't apologize for being faster than the official sources, but I have a feeling my post (and Amazon's possibly premature listing) may have caused the SFF to rush the press release sooner than expected. Admin Robert predated post #1 to make it first in the thread I started.

    Two days later, this is still the ONLY place on the web where the details have appeared officially. I expect we'll be hearing from FSE at Sinatra.com, and seeing Amazon pre-order links worldwide, before very long...

    Sounds like the last page of an Agatha Christie novel...

    Fwiw, I like the cover art in The Post Formerly Known as #1.

    Famous photo by Herman Leonard from the '58 Monte Carlo gig.

    Sinatra - World On A String will be an extraordinary listening and viewing experience for all Frank Sinatra fans. I can't wait to purchase it! The Sporting Club at Monte Carlo audio, and the Hibya Park concert audio have been in my private collection for decades. I realize, though, unauthorized up 'til now, they were sent to me from residents abroad, long before music copyright infringement laws were even heard of. I only mention that to tell you that as Sinatra fans you cannot do without this set, now authorized by the family & FSE. I'm so delighted that it will now be available to SFF members. Note: Mods, if there's anything here that needs to be deleted, please do so.

    The thought of having a DVD of the Hibya concert from 1962 absolutely thrills me. Frank was having a complete ball during this tour, and you'll hear it in his voice. The Perugina candy commercials (on my video recording anyway), has a young and attractive woman announcing each of Frank's songs in Italian, with no translation. I hope that this box set does away with her "intrusion." I'm looking forward to hearing Frank sing with continuity, without the commentary that commercialism dictated and Italian T.V. evidently thought was necessary at that time. People, order this set as soon as you can! I guarantee you won't be disappointed!

    Cool Frank Sinatra LIVE CD DVD Box Set 'World On A String' 2016

    wow, finally a new LIVE box set!


    (can't believe "Vegas" has already been 10 years ... and the NEW YORK set after).

    "World On A String" is a subject so befetting for Frank Sinatra.
    I think he did the longest consecutive world tour of any solo artist, from 1974 to 1994.
    they also printed newspapaer ads at some point in 75/76 i think, highlighting his 300+ gig dates a year!
    (i think as late as the 90s with his diamond jubilee world tour he did like 200-300 gigs per year, amazing).

    i am most curious about the sydney stadium cd and the japan hibya park dvd.

    the 1982 dominican republic concert has always been in my top 5 favourites, and although i would have welcomed another unreleased show instead of this, i admit it might be interesting having the sound track on cd.
    (i remember taping the sound track from my old vhs to cassette tape in 1993, to listen to it frequently

    i mostly enjoy concert movies, so i wonder if egypt 1979 will ever be released on dvd as well (i think they showed it years ago at the museum of television in LA).

    thank you!

  12. #32
    Me, too, Steffen! I've been waiting for a DVD of the "Concert At The Pyramids" since 1979! If and when it becomes officially released, I'll be delighted! I have a small video snippet from CBS news at the time it happened, but that's it! When I review it, it only leaves me craving more.

    NOTE CORRECTION!!!!! SORRY 'BOUT THAT for any confusion! Hi Jim: Just an FYI, the Video of "Concert At The Pyramids" from 1979, is not on the "Sinatra: World On A String" set scheduled for release this October. Strictly audio is included in this new release, and that's wonderful. Steffen and I were only musing on a (video) DVD concert "At The Pyramids," to be added to our future Dream/Wish List.

    The "free shipping to U.S. customers" does not seem to be working right now. I will try again later.
