This CD was released in 2003 as "A 30th Anniversary Tribute to Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show", and includes an eclectic mix of styles. Paul Pecorino performed on stage as Dr. Frank-N-Furter for almost three years on tour across Europe in over 500 shows. The CD was reviewed in the August/September 2003 edition (No. 102) of Musicals - Das Musicalmagazin:
Rarely have the cult-hits from Richard O'Brien's "Rocky Horror Show" sounded in such imaginative new arrangements like on the debut album of Paul Pecorino, "Perfectly Frank". Pecorino, who plays the role of Frank-N-Furter in the current tour production of Rocky, recruited the masterminds Richard Beadle and Jens Krause to resurrect the well-known cult hits in the sound of the modern age. "Sweet Transvestite" presents itself in the hammering, dirty rock-sound of the 21st century and "Sweet TV 4711 edit" as a trance-mix like Faithless. "The Time Warp" is on the album twice as well: first as a guitar oppressive Drum-n-Bass (version Brooklyn Dub) and — to match with the current 70s retro wave — as a funny Velveeta-Disco-Mix, whereas "Touch Me" revives as a bar-jazz ballad. "I'm Going Home", the seventh and last song on this refreshing innovative solo-CD, is celebrated as a six minute long solemn hymn and a little spherical ballad, and forms the perfect ending of this recording. Pecorino's sensuous-masculine voice has the versatility to serve all the different styles of this CD and enthralls the listener immediately. That this high standard produced CD has not been released by a big record company is a real shame. Info for ordering @ bce-gastspielbuero.de.
