If you asked me if I liked Frank I would probably respond with “well Strangers in the Night is tolerable”.
Following Bob’s Shadows In The Night set I thought I’d dig out the originals. What a let down.
On another thread someone (I can’t remember who) mentioned Franks suicide trilogy which I guess are In The Wee Small Hours (having a wee in the small hours is an age thing), Where Are You?, and Sings For Only The Lonely. I’d happily sit through that lot with a bottle of whiskey and a bottle of pills knowing that I’d be asleep long before either were finished.
Trouble is Frank sounds flat ( © ianess ) to me. Am I missing something, is there a key to unlock the mysteries of his voice, ( the arrangements don’t do a lot for me either ).
Over to you lot, convince me I’m wrong!
