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

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song ! 😉

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
