Never been a big Frankie fan, Pretty much my parents music.
I DO appreciate the time he took to "get the groove" just right.
Also I do not think he wrote the songs he sang(which is a biggie for me)
So basically he was an instrument that songwriters used to get their music sold.
A lot of 'artists' will change a word or two in a song that someone else has written just so they can get the credit for 'writing' a song. Usually you can tell if the 'artist's' name doesn't come first in the song credits.......
