This takes me back as "Songs for Swingin' Lovers" was the very first Sinatra L.P. I ever bought and from then on I was hooked! I browsed the record shops for every Sinatra L.P. I could find and became a big fan. I never missed any of his films and attended most of his concerts here in the U.K. I have been very lucky to have attended many of his shows in Las Vegas. One special evening was at the Aladdin Hotel when he was with Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and Liza Minnelli all on the same bill. We had front row seats. Pure magic. The following night we were at his opening at Caesars Palace. I was also at the Oscars in 1975 when he was one of the M.C.s. (I still have the souvenir program today). I have visited his private office in Hollywood which was exciting and received signed photos and gifts from him but never met the man in person much to my regret.
