This Is The Way It Should Be
9 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this television special, the first in the series I believe, Frank goes it alone....and that's the way I like it. I bought this to hear and watch Sinatra, not other people.

Here, Frank sings some of his more famous numbers (and favorites of mine) such as "I've Got You Under My Skin," "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "My Kind Of Town," "Come Fly With Me," "Witchcraft," and "The Lady Is A Tramp." I only wish the songs were a bit longer, as most of them were two minutes long....or less.

The show looked dated with the mid '60s set designs, music and even the jokes. The sets and script could have used some punching up. I saw this on tape a few times and I hope the DVD enhances the sound, more than what it was on the VHS.

Sinatra also sounded a bit hoarse on a few numbers. However, he was till pretty solid on most of the work and his delivery style was always entertaining to watch. If you're a fan of his, this is a keeper since it has so many of his better songs.
