Overview

Culled from a number of different live performances recorded during the '80s (as well as an awkward outtake from the Duets sessions: a version of "My Way" recorded with Luciano Pavarotti), Sinatra 80th Live is a surprisingly moving document of Frank Sinatra in the final stages of his career. By the time this material was recorded, Sinatra's voice had eroded somewhat, as his range had decreased and his voice had become reedier. Nevertheless, his singing was still impressive, as he re-interprets many of his classics in a new light, bringing a fresh emotional slant to many of the songs. Not all of the performances are comparable to some of his previously recorded versions, but all of the songs offer definitive proof that Sinatra was still capable of producing fine music in his 70s.

He's eighty-years-old when this was recorded. His voice is no where near what it was in the past. He can't hold notes and his voice breaks in this live concert. Listen to a sample of "What Now, My Love" and hear his voice break on the word "see." I love Sinatra, so it's dissapointing that they would even release a live concert of his at age eighty. Play all the samples here. Then play all the samples on "Sinatra at the Sands," which was recorded in 1966, and you'll hear a big difference in his voice.

This is more of a nostalgic compilation of songs. Remember he was 80 years old when this was recorded. Overall not bad!
