180-gram vinyl with a bonus CD of the album included

This exciting LP reissue features one of the last 'real' Mississippi Delta bluesmen, Frank Frost — recording some of the last 'real' down home blues. On this LP you'll discover: 180-gram direct metamastering, one bonus track, 13 astounding performances from an accomplished singer, guitarist and harmonica player at the peak of his abilities, a mix of Frost's own songs and his take on blues themes and licks that go way, way back.

Plus the music of a tight, working road band, the Night Hawks, in which drummer Sam Carr and guitarist Jack Johnson were integral parts and not just supporting players. The original sleeve art and notes appear, just as they were back in the day this LP was first issued on the Phillips International label in 1962. The original sleeve notes described Frost as "a truly talented artist," saying this album was first put together "to give the multitude of people that love rhythm and blues not just a few songs that are tops in their field, but to give you 12 potential hits on one great album."

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 April 15, 1936) and he died in Helena, Arkansas on October 12, 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." He, Carr and Johnson played blues in their own juke joints for many years. Frost described his music as "modern blues" but "deep blues" and had a favorite saying: "Blues will forever be."
