Ralph’s Reviews: Frank Porter – I Can Win
I’ve had the opportunity to see Frank Porter perform live on a few occasions and, in fact, had the pleasure of sharing the stage with him once a year or so ago. With that in mind, I already knew what Frank had to offer in the form of musical talent. I was anxious to get a taste of his latest project “I Can Win,” and I was certainly not disappointed in what I heard.
“I Can Win” is a 10-song, mostly acoustic album with a nice mix of original tunes as well as a couple tasteful, Frank Porter-style covers in the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” and Led Zepplins’ “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do.” What really stands out on this album is Frank’s incredible guitar work. “Frank’s Boogie” and “Bear Cub Road Bonfire” are two nicely done, instrumental pieces that showcase Frank’s guitar playing skills. The title track contains some well-placed guitar licks that Frank adds so well to his songs. Overall, I would definitely recommend giving Frank a listen.
With all that said, “I Can Win” is a limited release, and the only place you can find it currently is on ReverbNation. Frank will be putting some finishing touches on the album and releasing it everywhere in the very near future so this is more a heads-up and a preview of some very enjoyable music coming soon. In the meantime, you can enjoy “Frank Porter Live” (which I’ve embedded below) and “Who I Am“, two recent releases, available everywhere.
