Very good--as a brief introduction to Sinatra's TV work.

"Yes, I agree with the reviewer who writes that the quality of the sound and picture on this DVD could be better.However, to be fair, TV was still relatively unsophisticated at the time. The TV lights beam down bright on Sinatra and his guests--but their faces are clearly visible and you can hear what they are singing and saying without any problems.
This DVD is a great introductory collection of Sinatra's work with many of his contemporaries: Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, The Rat Pack, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, and more. This might be a very good DVD for people who want to see if they like Sinatra's work or who want to give this as a gift to someone they want to introduce to Sinatra's talent.
One other note: the packaging includes no notes or inserts! You just get the DVD. Yet I recommend this DVD--but for newcomers to Sinatra or those of us who want to sample TV variety shows on a budget."
Mostly recycled material; very poor sound

"A big let down due to poor quality of sound and picture. Moreover large portions of these materials are already out there. The extra material hardly is worth the cost especially in light of the sound problems."
