"Get Me to the Church On Time"

Gasp...It's Frank Sinatra!!
From a previous post:

On June 20, 1965, Frank Sinatra organized a "summit meeting" of the Rat Pack in St. Louis as a benefit for Dismas House of St. Louis, the first halfway house for ex-convicts. The evening was televised via closed-circuit to select locations, where ticket buyers watched the live performance on screen. The 90-minute version telecast on Nick at Night's TV Land in 1998 was part of The Museum of Television & Radio Showcase series. The concert was retitled Frank, Dean & Sammy: An Evening with the Rat Pack for the Nick at Nite broadcast.
Johnny filled in for Joey Bishop

Here's Frank's opening song from that performance, "Get Me to the Church On Time." Despite forgetting the words, he's swingin' hard (love it!). Like any great performer/artist, he made it look so easy and effortless.

I love this performance. The Clan was surely on their game.
