The album starts off with Frankie performing his smash hit "Venus;" Frankie sings this passionately with all his heart and soul. The female backup chorus sounds great and I like the way the musical arrangement uses the guitar. Great! "Why" is another beautiful ballad by Frankie; he sings this to perfection and the melody is incredibly catchy. The guitars, percussion and more make the musical arrangement on "Why" really special.
Listen also for "Dede Dinah;" this number sports an early rock and rock flavor with Frankie singing in what is just about his best falsetto. The brass adds to the melody and Frankie never sings a superfluous note on "Dede Dinah."
"Bobby Sox To Stockings" is an adorable number that features Frankie's vocals squarely in the spotlight and this number always was one of Frankie's more romantic, passionate love ballads. Frankie's excellent diction bolsters his performance as well.
"A Boy Without A Girl" gets the royal treatment from Frankie as he sings this slowly with all his heart; and I like that backup chorus! "I'll Wait For You" also showcases Frankie's strong voice as he bats this straight out of the ballpark.
The album ends with "You Are Mine." Frankie sounds great and this ballad features great use of the strings to bolster Frankie's singing. "You Are Mine" makes a terrific ending for this album!
Ordinarily, as I stated above, I would complain about an album that contains only ten tracks.Read more ›
