Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Originally released as JACKSON C. FRANK, this was also released in the mid-1990's as BLUES RUN THE GAME.
  • Personnel includes: Jackson C. Frank (vocals, acoustic guitar).
  • Includes liner notes by Alan Robinson.
  • This is a piece of folk history that slipped through the cracks. Buffalonian Frank traveled to London in the mid-'60s and recorded this album with the help of his still unknown pal Paul Simon. After its release, Frank became the toast of the town, though his music never hit the States. His poetic, Dylan-influenced lyrics, complex fingerpicking, and art song-like structures influenced everyone from Bert Jansch to Nick Drake.
  • Except for a young Al Stewart's recorded debut playing second guitar on "Yellow Walls," JACKSON C. FRANK is just Frank--his lilting tenor arcing over his delicate acoustic guitar accompaniment. The sparseness adds to the emotional impact. Beset by physical and psychological traumas, Frank soon disappeared, never to make another album, but this stands as one of the most important singer-songwriter offerings of the '60s.
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) (p.72) - "[S]uper-melodic yet oddly haunted....Frank's resonant timbre makes it all his."
