Frank Lauridsen - How It Feels To Be Frank (CD)
Frank Lauridsen is considered by many as one of Denmark's greatest singers ever, and his energetic, powerful and authentic voice has often been called a hybrid between Steve Winwood and Ray Charles.
‘How it feels to be Frank’ is dedicated to rhythm & blues, soul music, blues and country music, and even includes a few rock ballads and a twist of gospel.
The album has been almost 10 years in the making and features 2 borrowed and 10 original songs by Frank Lauridsen and friends. Frank mixes new and old songs, including a new, updated version of Curtis Mayfield's hit 'People Get Ready'.
Frank Lauridsen's career dates back to the early sixties, however this is his first-ever solo album (and sadly also the last), which includes good friends such as Lone Selmer, Ivan Pedersen and Allan Mortensen providing super strong backing vocals.
