Editorial Reviews

Franke & The Knockouts successful career began in 1980 accumulating 3 hit albums, massive T.V. & video exposure, successful tours & hit singles. Fronted by the multi-talented Franke Previte, these superstars churned out infectious pop hits like "Sweetheart," "Without You (Not Another Lonely Night)" & "Outrageous." As the band dissolved, Previte soon became one of the biggest songwriters in history with "Time Of My Life" & "Hungry Eyes" (Dirty Dancing). Friday Music is very proud to announce The Best Of Franke & The Knockouts-Sweetheart Anniversary Edition. Remastered-19 tracks w/ the original version of "Hungry Eyes."

Franke & the Knockouts was a band from Jersey from about 81 that was basically the vehicle for the voice & songwriting talents of Franke Previte (and Billy Elworthy).

I had the first two of Franke & The Knockouts albums on vinyl, listened to them on cassette, and since I can't listen to either any more, I had looked at finding the original albums transferred to CD. Alas, that was done some time ago, and the CD's are only available for outrageous amounts of money in the import bin.

[Now, I like Franke (etc) as much as the next guy, but not enough to pay that much money for them]

I've listened to the new album and yeah, its the songs that I remember. The up-tempo songs from Franke (...) are probably my favorite (Sweetheart, You're my girl). They're all "summer, good-time, at the boardwalk with your friends" music. The ballads not so much. The CD breaks down roughly into stuff from their first two albums as the first 10 songs (good), the rest are newer, more ballad oriented stuff, with one previously released song.

Anyway, the sound is true to the original vinyl. If you liked the original, you'll like these. For my money, I'd just as soon they release the first two albums, but I realize there are a lot of people who like the ballads.

Enjoy. Its all good.

I enjoyed Franke & The Knockouts' hits on vinyl LPs. A refreshing sound for '80's music! But when they came to CD, especially various artists ones, either the songs were edited and/or ripped from vinyl! To get the real deal was rather costly, since those CDs are out of print! And while most artists would rather not hear from fans, Franke Previte is different in that respect! I'm glad the CD money sales is going towards a good cause. Thanks, Franke!

Franke & The Knockouts achieved a top ten single in 1981 with the infectious "Sweetheart". Hailing from the New Brunswick, NJ club scene, their music styling is rock but with an ear towards the pop side. "Sweetheart" is the catchiest and best song they released, but other solid efforts include "Without You" and "You're My Girl".

These guys were just great, great vocals. Enjoy listening to any day! Likely many don't know what songs they actually sang.
