Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Lyle Workam, Bob Guisti, Dave Mccaffrey, Stand Ridgeway, Cynthia Haagens, Eric Potter, Dave Philips , Eric Drew Feldman, Scott Boutier, Jeff Moris Tepper, Joey Santiago , Matt Yelton, Nick Vincent, Andy Diagram, Pietra Wexstun, Rich Gilbert, Van Dyke Parks, Keith Moline, Jean Black.
  • Pixies fans were still drying their tears after the beloved band's demise in 1993 when frontman Black Francis (aka Charles Thompson) swiftly unveiled his first solo album--and his new semi-inverted moniker, Frank Black. While Black's self-titled debut proved to be largely an extension of the Pixies' swan song, TROMPE LE MONDE, and featured Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago and sideman Eric Drew Feldman, it may have been issued too soon for some listeners to fully embrace. His audience waned over the years, even as the prolific singer/guitarist's output remained steady.
  • This well-selected collection cherry-picks from Black's first decade on his own, including some of the finest songs from his lauded first two records (see the propulsive "Los Angeles" and the pop-perfect "Headache"), as well as unjustly overlooked later albums such as DOG IN THE SAND (the rollicking "Robert Onion"), essentially getting listeners up to speed on his pre-Pixies-reunion material. The collection reinforces his reputation as both a fierce performer and a surprisingly nuanced songwriter, and proves that Black never stopped being an intriguing artist, he just stopped being a Pixie for awhile.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.77) - "93-03 makes a strong case for Black as an eccentric visionary in his own right." -- Grade: B+
