Yo Frankie, studioalbum av den amerikanske rock- och popsångaren Dion, utgivet 1989.  Albumet är producerat av Dave Edmunds gavs ut på skivbolaget Arista Records.  (More from Swedish Wikipedia – translation available)
Dion DiMucci was one of the leading rock and rollers of the late 1950's and early 1960's, and his work still sounds great to me to this day.   
After a long career in the 1950's and 1960's, and a period of Christian contemporary recordings, Dion was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and released a great comeback album called Yo Frankie in 1989.  The sticker on the cover proclaims:  "The man who invented the rock & roll attitude . . . has now perfected it".  Produced by Dave Edmunds, the album features numerous guest appearances:  Paul SimonLou Reedk.d. langPatty Smyth and Bryan Adams.  Reed's speech at the induction ceremony is also included on the sleeve.
