Video: Frank Sinatra - “It Was A Very Good Year”
In which Frank Sinatra bangs out a classic 1965 performance in just one take, live in the studio with an orchestra. Note the way he works the microphone, quickly turning his head to avoid plosives on certain consonants. Watching Ol’ Blue Eyes enjoy the playback is pretty priceless, too.
This is just immensely satisfying. Punk rock’s nice and everything, but, I mean, wow.
