FRANK SINATRA : IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR [SINATRA AT THE SANDS, 1966]

Για την επέτειο των γενεθλίων ενός από τους μεγαλύτερους ερμηνευτές του 20 αι. [12/12/1915] διαλέγουμε ένα τραγούδι από το ιστορικό live Sinatra At The Sands.
Το άλμπουμ ηχογραφήθηκε στο Sands Hotel / Casino του Las Vegas το 1966, με τον
Count Basie στο πιάνο και τον Quincy Jones σε ρόλο ενορχηστρωτή και διευθυντή της Count Basie Orchestra…

For the b-day of one of the greatest singers of the 20th century [12/12/1915] we pick a song from the historic live album
Sinatra At The Sands.
The album was recorded at the Las Vegas Sands Hotel / Casino in 1966, with
Count Basie on the piano and Quincy Jones arranging and conducting the Count Basie Orchestra…

When I was seventeen
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for small
Town girls and soft summer nights
We’d hide from the lights
On the village green
When I was seventeen
When I was twenty-one
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for city girls
Who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair
And it came undone
When I was twenty-one
When I was thirty-five
It was a very good year
It was a very good year for blue
Blooded girls of independent means
We’d ride in limousines
Their chauffeurs would drive
When I was thirty-five
But now the days are short
I’m in the autumn of the year
And now I think of my life as vintage
Wine from fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs
It poured sweet and clear
It was a very good year
