ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Grammy and Golden Globe nominated artist Frank Stallone has been everything from a street singer, to a rock singer, to a big band singer. Who has composed & published more than 200 of his own songs.

At a young age, the Maryland-born native pursued his musical ambitions, forming a series of bands in high school, and turning professional at age15, performing in clubs, and at times, would open for national recording artists that came through town. Frank's longest-lasting band, Valentine, included John Oates, of Hall & Oates. Frank eventually landed in New York, where he performed on street corners and made the rounds, performing in coffee houses in Greenwich Village to make ends meet.

“Some nights it was so cold, that my guitar strings froze, and my fingers wouldn't move. All I owned was the guitar on my back, and a duffle bag for my clothes. If I was lucky, I made five dollars a night. Frank recalls, “One night I was standing on Third Avenue playing my guitar, when this big Irish policeman came strolling by, and stopped to listen to singing and playing . When I was done, he politely handed me a ticket for disturbing the peace, while at the same time telling me how much he liked my voice. I wish I still had that ticket,” continues Frank.


Frank's musical ambitions were paralleled by his brother, Sylvester’s acting ambitions, who at the time was performing in off-Broadway shows when he had the chance. The two decided to join forces and became ushers at the little Carnegie Theater, in which, they were unceremoniously asked to leave, because their hair was to long and they were wearing improper attire, namely painted cowboy boots with their tuxedos - those being the only shoes they had.




It was when Sylvester moved to California to begin a film career, that the two brothers' worlds really came together again, affording Frank his first big break into the mainstream. Sylvester's low-budget film, that happened to transform into one of the most successful and enduring movies in motion picture history, needed a group of street corner singers - that movie was “Rocky.”

His a-capella, self-penned song, Take You Back, resulted in becoming one of the film's most unforgettable street corner scenes.

Frank finally decided to move to California . It was there, that he coincidentally moved next door to his musical idol, the legendary Harry Nilsson. “I not only got to meet Harry, but we got to record together,” smiles Frank. A dream came true for Frank when the duo collaborated on the Joni Mitchell classic, Case Of You, in which Frank sang, and Nilsson produced. The single garnered great acclaim, and reached #67 on the Billboard charts, Frank’s second charted record.

It was Frank's recordings for the Saturday Night Fever Sequel “Staying Alive” soundtrack, that gained him the respect of both his industry peers and critics alike when he received a 1983 Golden Globe nomination for “Best Soundtrack”; and a Grammy nomination for “Best Original Song,” with his single, Far From Over. That song became a massive Number#1 hit around the world , and stayed on the charts for more than four months.

Over the course of the last two decades, Frank has garnered Three Platinum Albums and 10 Gold Albums and Five Gold Singles. And has
acted in to 50 films. One of his most memorable on-screen appearances was his role as Eddie the bartender in “Barfly,” which gave rise to serious consideration for an Academy Award nomination, and won the acclaim of renowned film critic Roger Ebert of the “Chicago Sun Times”: “Barfly is a terrific film that features an outstanding performance by Frank Stallone he's both captivating and terrifying at the same time!”





Frank has recorded 7 solo albums and has written and sung on 8 movie sound tracks. The rock-influenced Full Circle, “ which I feel is my best” followed by His American Songbook albums, IN LOVE IN VAIN, With Sammy Nestico, Frankie & Billy with Billy May and Soft and Low. He simultaneously released Stallone On Stallone, By Request a compilation of Frank's film soundtrack tunes, and Songs From The Saddle showing Frank’s more acoustic side. Frank also, over the last several years, has taken his love of the big band sound on the road, performing all around the world in concert halls from Los Angeles to London, where he has garnered critical acclaim from such publications as the “New York Daily News”…”He has the crowd enthralled.”.
Frank also combines all his hits in his shows playing Acoustic and Electric guitar. It’s all in a days work for this multi faceted artist

For the Sinatra die-hard, Frank Stallion is a dream come true. With elegance, finesse and sensuality, he waltzes and shuffles through favorite standards with a velvety, unforgettable voice in that classic crooner, sophisticated style touched with a modern appeal. Melting hearts everywhere, "Soft And Low" is an album that calls for cuddling up, pouring some wine or donning that sport coat for a martini-rich night on the town. There's no surprise why he is a Grammy and Golden Globe-nominated artist.

Superb CD
I have several Cd'S of Frank Stallone. Above CD is a Kind of Compilation and it seems to me that only the two first tracks are newly issued. All the other tracks can be found on his previous wonderful CD's. Recommend, Purchase It!! Frank Stallone Cd's are not always easy to find. Hope we are going soon to hear again from him!!

Frank is an excellent, classy crooner. This is a very enjoyable, relaxing CD. My only complaint is there are only 8 songs. I wish there were a few more songs, but the music is great. Anyone who likes standards should enjoy this CD.

What a show.
I can see Frank in his 'Evening suit'[I'm English, No Tux for me]!calmly walking on stage, taking the audience by the scruff of their necks, and emotionally wringing them dry. He goes from happy to sad, sorrowful to optomistic. He is talented and I really am supprised he is not as well known as he should be. Yes indeed, What a Show!

This CD is full of beautiful music. Mr. Stallone delivers the most superb vocals and professionalism on each song. He treats every song like it is a precious treasure. No one else ever needs to redo But Beautiful...Mr. Stallone does it better than anybody!
