A treasure trove of songs Frank Sinatra recorded in London as the Beatles were making their chart debut in 1962 are to be released for the first time as part of a new Cd and Dvd retrospective.

Sinatra: London will feature the songs the legendary crooner recorded for his Great Songs From Great Britain album over three nights at the city's CTS Studios in June, 1962, along with other highlights connected to his stay in the British capital.

The new release, available in November (14), will feature the remastered original studio album with over 50 previously unreleased recordings, including session material from the album, a 1962 BBC Light Programme radio special with introductions to each song by Sinatra himself, and a 1953 live session for BBC Radio's The Show Band Show.

The Dvd package will feature footage from a 1962 Royal Festival Hall concert, plus a 1970 concert appearance from the same venue with a never-before released performance of the classic song A Foggy Day.
