Hey folks, head on over to Guitars 101 to catch a kooky 1962 performance from The Rat Pack back on the 25th of August in 1962 at the 500 Club in Atlantic City.

The track listing of this particular soundboard recording goes as follows:

Dean Martin:
I'm Gonna Sit Right Now And Write Myself A Letter
On An Evening In Roma

Frank Sinatra:
Goody Goody
At Long Last Love
I Get A Kick Out Of You

Sammy Davis, Jr.:
The Lady Is A Tramp

Medley And The Birth Of The Blues
Oh, Yeah, We Got A Lot More

And while you are at it, please make sure to support your local record shop and ask for the latest release from the Sinatra vaults: a 17-track compilation gathering the best moments from the 2006 Reprise box set Vegas, a sadly out-of-print five-disc collection that chronicled Frank's years playing at The Sands, Caesar's Palace and The Golden Nugget from 1961 to 1987. It's a great place to start for the Sinatra concert novice, but those of us who are into the whole ring-a-ding thing in regards to Old Blue Eyes' Sin City trip are hoping they will follow this up with an updated version of the whole shebang. -Ed.
