Sinatra Spans The Globe On ‘World On A String’

Published on

Frank Sinatra - World On A String - Expanded Packshot

Frank Sinatra may be most often associated with New York or Las Vegas but, truth is, he was a star with global appeal to rival even the world’s biggest names: the Stones, Beatles and Elvis among them. Following acclaimed box sets that have focused on his live performances in New York, or his studio sessions in London, World On A String, due for release on 21 October via UMe and Frank Sinatra Enterprises, presents The Chairman’s finest performances around the world, taking in concerts from such far flung places as Monte Carlo, Australia and the Dominican Republic. There’s even a concert held at Great Pyramid Of Giza, in Egypt – capturing what happened when one of the wonders of the music world visited one of the Seven Wonders Of The Ancient World.

Across four CDs and a DVD, World On A String collects three decades’ worth of performances, from 1953 to 1982, most of which are being made available for the first time. Tracing Sinatra’s development as a live performer, they also capture how his music spread around the world, and highlight one of the lesser-known aspects of Sinatra’s life: his charity work. Many of the performances included in the set were held as benefits for local children, contributing to the more than $1 billion that Sinatra raised for charity in his lifetime.

“I really don’t know what jet lag is – I don’t understand it!” Sinatra once exclaimed, adding, “Luckily, it never bothered me.” As if a testament to that, the recordings on World On A String reveal that Sinatra’s voice never tired over the years; each show finds him in perfect form.

Well, what else would you expect from the man they called The Voice?

World On A String is out on 21 October. Scroll down to read the full tracklisting, and purchase the box set here:
