Vor meiner Abreise letzten Donnerstag hatte ich an den Anbieter (am 8.6.) via Ebay-Mail folgende Fragen gemailt:
Hello, I have a few questions/remarks regarding this offer. 1) Could you please indicate the exact sequence and names of the individual tracks on the Video. (Sinatra did not, as written in your text, end the 1986 M-adrid show with "Strangers", but with "My Way"). 2) The 1986 M-adrid show was not Sinatra's only concert appearance in Spain. There were quite a few other ones, before and after (Barcelona 1991, Barcelona & La Coruna 1992). 3) It is not correct that the Madrid concert was "never broadcast". It was made into a radio special for CADENA-SER and broadcast in its entirety, with comments by Joaquin Prat and others. Copies of this broadcast are quite well-known with Sinatrafans. 4) How can you possibly guarantee there are no other copies in existence? Thanks for any response to clear up these inconsistencies. Kind regards"
Darauf hat der Anbieter zunächst folgendes geantwortet (am 9.6.):
Answering some of your questions. The show ended with STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT ( I was also in the concert in 1986 and I have checked the DVD this morning also ). I insist in the fact that was never broadcasted. I refered to TV emission, but also, as far as I know to radio. there could be an Special radio program, but not the complete concert, sure; Joaquin Prats was working then in TVE, not in la Cadena Ser. In the presentation by Jose Luis Uribarri, he said this was the first concert ever in Spain by Frank Sinatra.... ( and was announced as that )( this appears on the video tape - not on the DVD ) The guarantee that there will be no more copies is a question of confidence and trust. The original owner said to me that there are no more copies, and there will be no more. The original Master was destroyed.... I will try to give you a more accurate track listing, but as I am not a Sinatra's expert, there could be songs I will not recognize..... Best regards
Hieß also: "ich habs überprüft! STrangers war der Closing Song!"
Und dann hat er aber (surprise, surprise) später korrigierend folgendes gemailt (am 10.6.):
Regarding the track listing of the concert, yoiu were correct. He ended the concert with MY WAY ( I have just verufied it ). The confussion was in the fact that the DVD was incorrectly chaptered and STRANGERS IN THE NIGHT and MY WAY were in the same chapter of the DVD. It was not checked from the video
This is the correct track listing:
Opening/ Fly Me To The Moon / Without A Song / What Now My Love / I've Got You Under My Skin / Bewitched / Where Or When / Witchcraft / My Heart Stood Still/ New York, New York / Granada / The Summer Wind / Night And Day / I Get A Kick Out Of You/ Come Rain Or Come Shine / L.A. Is My Lady / The Girl From Ipanema / April In Paris / The Lady Is A Tramp / For Once In My Life / Mack The Knife/ All The Way/ Strangers In The Night / My Way/ Closing
This listing was obtained from internet and just verified
I will add it to the descrption right now
OK, geaddet hat er. Also immerhin ist er lernfähig . Die entscheidende Frage (abgefilmt oder nicht) bleibt unbeantwortet, ebenso wie die Begründung der Garantie "nur eine Kopie" nach wie vor nicht überzeugen kann. Und die DVD, die er anbietet, hatte er offenkundig vor meiner Nachfrage nie angeschaut... bleibt alles schwammig.
In Sachen CADENA-SER hab ich jetzt nochmal zurückgemailt, dergestalt, daß es definitiv diese Radiosendung gab, siehe "kursierende" Bandkopie. Wenns ne Antwort gibt, werde ich sie hier forwarden/posten.
