Frank Sinatra Live 1968 Oakland,Ca.

For this bootleg/live Thursday I have included this great concert. Frank Sinatra has long been a favorite of mine & this is an amazing performance on May 22, 1968 at the Oakland Coliseum. “Ol’ Man River” is my favorite on this album as Ol’ Blue Eyes sings it to perfection. Backed by a full orchestra, Sinatra is in excellent voice and the song selection is first-rate. The concert was a big Democratic Party fundraiser, and it was very rare for Sinatra (or any other performer) to do stadium shows at this time. Sadly, such massive concerts would become Sinatra’s main musical activity throughout the ’70s and ’80s.
