lamarca Little known '60s Folk Singers (1001* d) RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers 28 Aug 06


Jackson C. Frank - I only knew of him from his cut "Blues Run the Game" on the original Electric Muse compilation, a song I loved. A couple of years ago, his only LP was re-issued on CD and I bought it - it's wonderful stuff.

Frank lived and performed in the London scene of the mid-sixties, associating with Paul Simon (who produced his first LP), Bert Jansch, Al Stewart, etc. He supposedly pushed Sandy Denney to give up her day job as a nurse and encouraged her to make music a full-time job.

Sadly, his album flopped in the States, and he returned to the US, where he wound up homeless and mentally and physically ill. A curious fan managed to track him down, and helped him to get some state aid and some belated royalty checks. Frank died in 1999, at the age of 56.
