    5Sinatra at his Most Charismatic, Aging Gracefully Here
    By Donald J. Paul
    Frank was a little past his prime when this live concert was performed, but he was in terrific form in this early 80s show. His bluesy rendition of "Come Rain or Shine" takes Don Costa's great chart and makes it grittier, sans the massive string section. "Best Is Yet to Come" is as solid a rendition of the Cy Coleman song as I've ever seen or heard. "I Won't Dance" swings, and Franks's drummer Irv Cottler places the perfect, powerful accents to kick Sinatra higher. Speaking of Cottler, you won't see Buddy Rich behind Sinatra, but that's fine. Cottler knew every nook and cranny of Sinatra's rhythmic phrasing and knew how to fire up his boss. It's Buddy's band, augmented by french horns and virtuoso Tony Mottola, along with a couple of other Sinatra regulars. There is a break in which Buddy comes out and does his classic "West Side Story", with a typically explosive drum solo. I have a friend who attended this concert in the Dominican Republic who told me Buddy collapsed after his performance from the stifling heat & humidity. You'll note he didn't even wear a hairpiece...somehow, Sinatra looked comfortable.

    No, it's not HD, the audio is okay but not up to the best technologies of today...but this is one of the best Sinatra live concerts you'll find. 'S Wonderful.

    5The Performer!
    By Jazznme
    He became the BEST! Miss him so much! YouTube is only a glimpse! Put it together with his movies, his personal life, his humble beginnings, all the brawls, They can never make a movie about FRANK! It would have to be a 12 episode series, to be continued!!

    5this Concert for the Americas video is THE VERY BEST..
    By JP
    In my view, of all the Sinatra in-concert videos available, this Concert for the Americas video is THE VERY BEST . . . because (1) Sinatra is in unusually good voice AND he's having an absolute ball working with Buddy Rich's full big-band-sound orchestra and singing for this audience; plus (2) the visuals and sound-quality of the concert in the Dominican Republic are unsurpassed of all his videos -- a Sinatra-lover's feast for both the eyes and the ears!!
