New York, NY (August 29, 2016)--Continuing the worldwide centennial celebration for legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra, on September 23 2016, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release another suite of titles in The Frank Sinatra Collection.

THE FRANK SINATRA COLLECTION
THREE NEW DVDS TO BE RELEASED
~SEPTEMBER 23, 2016~
‘Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back / The Main Event’ and ‘At The Royal Festival Hall / Sinatra In Japan’ are essential collections, all clearly bearing the hallmark of true quality. ‘Happy Holidays With Frank & Bing’ / ‘Vintage Sinatra’ combines a classic Christmas special from 1957 with a compilation from his 1950s TV shows. [MSRP $9.98 each]
‘Ol’ Blue Eyes Is Back’ was first broadcast by NBC on November 18, 1973 and 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 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 starts 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.”
‘At The Royal Festival Hall’ was filmed at London’s famous venue on November 16, 1970 and later broadcast as a television special by CBS. The concert was introduced by HSH Princess Grace of Monaco, the former Grace Kelly, who had co-starred with Sinatra in the film “High Society”. The setlist includes a superb rendition of George Harrison’s classic love song “Something” alongside classic songs such as “Pennies From Heaven,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “My Kind Of Town” and “My Way.”
Filmed at Tokyo’s legendary Budokan on April 18, 1985, the ‘Sinatra In Japan’ show begins with a montage of stills and film clips while the orchestra perform a medley of classic Frank Sinatra tunes. Sinatra then takes to the stage with a rousing performance of “The Lady Is A Tramp” followed by many of his best-loved songs and biggest hits.
First aired on December 20, 1957, ‘Happy Holidays With Frank & Bing’ is a timeless Christmas favorite featuring the magical combination of Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby in an early color television special. The two legends swap Christmas carols, songs and stories, pay a musical visit to Victorian England and duet on some Christmas classics. The show finishes in inimitable fashion with “The Christmas Song” and “White Christmas” for pure festive perfection.
The ‘Vintage Sinatra’ compilation DVD brings together black and white footage taken from Frank Sinatra’s television shows in the 1950s with color commentary and reminiscences from his three children: Nancy, Tina and Frank Sinatra Jr. It features performances of many of Sinatra’s most popular songs including: “Come Fly With Me,” “I Get A Kick Out Of You,” “My Funny Valentine,” which he sings to a young Nancy, “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “The House I Live In” and many more, all set into context by the anecdotes of Nancy, Tina and Frank Jr.
Packed with his incredible renditions of the songs that he made famous, The Frank Sinatra Collection is a treasure trove for any Sinatra fan.
