Here are some releases, I forgot to mention in the last posts or that just came out the end of last year and I received the records these days.
Here we go:
Ba Da ding records released 2015 a fancy 3 LP issue with the complete works of Jackson C. Frank. I bought the second LP with the Peel sessions and the fantastic Shottwell Sessions 1972 with the Songs Juliette and China Blue.
Ba Da Ding:
The first official release of Frank’s recordings since the long out-of-print double CD that came out on Sanctuary Records in 2003, these three double LPs, Volumes 1-3, (it will also be a 3xCD set) present, for the first time, the entire discography of the folk singer, regarded by many as among the best forgotten songwriters of the 1960s. All of his songs have been remastered, many from fragile reel-to-reel tapes, by Dave Cooley of Elysian Masters. The set includes 19 previously unreleased from the 1960s and 1970s, pressed from newly discovered master recordings. In conjunction with The Complete Recordings, Ba Da Bing is publishing Jackson C. Frank: The Clear, Hard Light of Genius, a biography chronicling Frank’s life, as told by Jim Abbott, who befriended and looked after the musician in his final years.
The Complete Recordings includes:
• 19 never released songs from 1961, Peel Sessions from 1968, and recordings from 1970 and 1972.
• The original Blues Run The Game, completely remastered for this release.
• All the songs from the out of print double CD reissue from 2001, all carefully remastered.
• Updated liner notes by Colin Harper.
• Never before seen photos and documents from Jackson’s life
