Full Show Friday: Frank Sinatra 1970 Royal Festival Hall

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Frank Sinatra!
Not everyone can get an intro from Princess Grace of Monaco, but Ol' Blue Eye's can, let's slip it back in time Daddy-O. Granted 1970 wasn't the highpoint of Sinatra's career, but he still brings his charm, charisma and voice to this performance. Backed by a full orchestra in England Sinatra has been better but still the star as the players are fine if not super dynamic.

Giving a shot to "Something" (even jokingly admitting he is still learning it) clearly shows that Sinatra's time is gone, yet he is timeless. Just peep the dynamic version of "I Get Along Without You Very Well". Simply amazing. 

What more can be said about the chairman of the boards? Well here's one, we recently read this article and love how it changed reporting forever and per-shadowed blogging without access. Feel free to read it and check out the show, setlist below:
