The Main Event -- Live
Released: Oct 1974
Label: Frank Sinatra Enterprises
After his Capitol resurgence of the 1950s, Sinatra didn't tour much. He was so busy crafting era-defining LPs and starring in movies that concerts were often done for charity or just for fun. That ended when he came back in the '70s and made playing huge sports arenas and stadiums his bread and butter. He was so successful at it that he rarely recorded again. His voice is battered on this 1974 concert with the great Woody Herman's Thundering Herd, but at least he leans more heavily on standards than on newer/blander tunes. The highlights are "The Lady Is a Tramp" and "I Get a Kick Out of You."
