2014 re-release. Following the release of SOME NICE THINGS I'VE MISSED, Frank Sinatra embarked on a six-concert tour in 1974. The tour culminated with a televised concert from Madison Square Garden on October 13, 1974. Subtitled LIVE FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, this album isn't an exact document of the concert. Instead, it's a compilation taken from various shows on 'The Main Event' tour. The album is a delight, full of inspired performances. While there are a couple of contemporary numbers thrown in, the majority of the songs are standards, from 'The Lady Is a Tramp' to 'I've Got You Under My Skin.' Sinatra's voice sound fine on his trademark numbers, particularly a lovely piano duet on 'Angel Eyes, ' but he brings contemporary material to life as well. Dedicated fans will certainly find more to cherish here than the casual listener, but it remains one of his most enjoyable records of the '70s.
