Frankie Vaughan, British crooner, died on 17th Sept. 1999
Born Frank Abelson in Liverpool on 3rd February 1928, Frankie went on to become one of the most successful British vocalists during the 1950s and early '60s, achieving two No. 1 hits with "Garden Of Eden" in 1957 and "Tower Of Strength" in 1961. He was especially adept at achieving UK hits with covers of US originals, like "Green Door" and "Come Softly To Me" (with the Kaye Sisters). With his flamboyant trademark stage performance of "Give Me The Moonlight", he was a favourite with female audiences, and a ubiquitous figure on TV and in cabaret. Frankie died in September 1999. Acrobat has on catalogue as album he recorded in the 1980s featuring new versions of some of his hits, as well as interpretations of pop standards.
