As always, Bear Family goes one better. Here you get the original LP plus Crawlback, the A side of Frank's only single on Phillips International. -- So, get this LP and experience the pleasure felt by those multitude of blues fans back in the period of classic vinyl albums.

Frank Frost came from Auvergne, Arkansas (born 15 April 1936) and he died in Helena, Arkansas on 12 October 1999. He was the last great blues player on the original Sun/Phillips Int. labels and he was there on merit. He worked early in his career with Sonny Boy Williamson and with Robert Nighthawk. He worked with Sam Carr, Nighthawk's son, and guitarist Big Jack Johnson. Their band was named after Sam's father but changed to the Jelly Roll Kings after the local success of the song of that name on this LP. Frost went on to record the blues for Jewel Records and to feature in the blues documentary 'Deep Blues' and the cult movie, 'Crossroads.'
