A 50th anniversary edition of Frank Sinatra’s classic album, My Way, is being released with several bonus tracks – including a duet with Willie Nelson – on October 11, via Capitol/UMe and Frank Sinatra Enterprises.

Released on Reprise in March 1969, and produced by Don Costa and Sonny Burke, My Way features a varied collection of contemporary pop songs, including “Yesterday,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “For Once in My Life,” and the iconic title track. Recorded on December 30, 1968, in just one take, “My Way” long considered one of Sinatra’s signature songs, peaked at just #27 in the U.S. (It stayed on the U.K. charts for a record-breaking 75 weeks.)

The My Way 50th anniversary set features four bonus tracks, including a live version of the title track, recorded at the Ahmanson Theatre in 1971.

Not much beats a trip to Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas, but for those of us who can’t make it to the next sold-out show, there’s an ever-expanding collection of live concert videos from the legendary venue on YouTube. Here are a few of the best.

There’s nothing more Texan than seeing Willie Nelson in Texas’ Oldest Dance Hall. Watch this clip of his classic set opener for a peek at the legendary barebones backstage entrance.

Jerry Jeff Walker
“Pickup Truck Song”

Jerry Jeff Walker has been a Gruene Hall mainstay for years, and this charmingly loose performance from his 1989 comeback live album showcases the love between performer and audience that’s kept him hosting his annual birthday celebration there for decades.

I’m With Her
“See You Around”

Singer-songwriter and Wimberly native Sarah Jarosz has built a national following since breaking out of Central Texas, most recently with her Americana supergroup, I’m With Her, which took the stage earlier this year for a captivating homecoming performance.

Joe Ely
“Musta Notta Gotta Lotta”

This fiery 1982 clip shows Ely and his band, fresh off a tour with the Clash, flying through the new-wave rockabilly that made their live shows legendary.
