“You Make Me Feel So Young”
LIVE in London
This is a LIVE video of Frank back in 1962, performing at the Royal Festival Hall in London. 1962 seems like such a long time ago and yet in another way it was just yesterday.
At that time Frank was at the top of the Entertainment Industry. I recall living in Atlantic City at the time. Frank’s very close friend Skinny D’amato owned the 500 Club (known by many as just The 5) where Frank appeared every year for some time. The place would be packed…. It was just a small venue but Frank came anyway just to help out Skinny.
I recall the bill boards back in the day when Frank would arrive. Some of them actually showed a picture of Frank.
But others if you can imagine on a huge bill board, written in small letters…. He’s Back. That’s it… He’s Back. No mention of Frank Sinatra or anything else.
Everybody knew what that meant and where he would be.
So when this was recorded in London back at that time even in Europe fans just couldn’t get enough. Sinatra was truly one of a kind. Hope you enjoy this recording.
