Frank Sinatra Joins The Back Catalogue Band Wagon

All hail the power of the back catalogue! I don’t need to tell you the score. Cash hungry record companies, to some extent, live and breath due to back catalogues They use technology, innovation, and the odd anniversary or occasion, to bring their artists music back to the forefront of our consciousness.

This time round, it’s the turn of the late, great, legend that is Frank Sinatra, to make another appearance on our shop shelves, as his label releases what is widely know as his best concert ever. Sinatra performed at Meadowlands in New Jersey in 1986, and the recording was something of a rare/sought after item among his legions of fans, that is until now.

Style, unshakeable confidence, and a unique singing style, that has inspired people for over sixty years. That was all part and parcel of who Frank Sinatra was as a person, and as an award winning singer/musician. His catalogue of achievements in music and other industries, has cemented his place in music history for all time, and no matter what your opinions on re-issue are, I’m sure you’ll all enjoy a bit of nostalgia too.
