Picks and Pans Review: Frank Stallone
All right, so there are worse singers' in America. (Let's see, there's one in Dubuque, another one in Leesville, La. and then there's a guy...) But if Frank's last name were Jones, it's doubtful that he would have his own album on a major label. This LP includes his hit, Far From Over, from the film Staying Alive, which brother Sylvester directed. It does have a mechanical urgency to it, and Stallone's breathless approach doesn't hurt the song. He has a couple of effective moments on the ballad Fly Together; and She's So Popular, one of two songs on the album he didn't co-write, is slick. The LP is a throwaway nonetheless.
