Sunday Sinatra ~ The Main Event 1974

Sinatra _The Main Event 1974

How long this will be allowed to remain on You Tube. But you better eat this up and enjoy it while you can.

One hell of a moment in Music History and I remember sitting there at 17 years old with my parents soaking up every single moment of it.

Man it was grand, you could be a hippie and still steal your Dad’s Frank Sinatra Album. LMAO…Which I still have. 

Angel Eyes Uhhhh. Can’t get any better.

Only befitting on the day of what used to be another Class event. The Academy Awards. I’m looking forward to 70-year-old Barbara Streisand to blow Adele off of the stage!

Miss you Mr. Chairman.
