LONDON Jan 31 A disc jockey from a remote Scottish islandradio station said he would play an 11-minute Frank Sinatra recordingthat had never been heard in public before. Sinatra sang the version of"Soliloquy," from the musical "Carousel," during a performance he gaveat an Atlantic City casino on his birthday in 1988, said Isles FM discjockey Rodney Collins.
"Hundreds of recordings have come to light since Sinatra's death,"Collins, a self-proclaimed expert on Ol' Blue Eyes, told Reuters. "Whatmakes this one special is that it is of such high quality." He saidAmerican fans of the late crooner had sent the recording to him at thecommunity radio station where he works on the island of Lewis in theOuter Hebrides. The tape was likely made as a private recording to bepassed out among friends who attended the show, which also featuredperformances by the late Sammy Davis Jr and Buddy Greco, he said.
