The steadfast legacy of Ol' Blue Eyes continues to unfold as Reprise preps Sinatra: New York, a five-disc box set of live Frank Sinatra performances due Nov. 3. These previously unreleased recordings are pulled from Sinatra concerts in legendary New York City venues between 1955 and 1990, captured on four CDs and a DVD.

The digital download will cost a whopping $45 less than the feel-it-between-your-palms physical edition, which for $79.99 includes rare photographs and tributes, liner notes and essays by a flurry of friends and admirers: Frank Sinatra Jr., Martin Scorsese, Twyla Tharp, director William Friedkin (The Exorcist), photographer George Kalinsky and Joe and Sal Scognamillo of The Chairman of the Board's favorite, Patsy's Italian Restaurant.
