I have recently discovered Jackson C Frank and cannot now understand why his music isn't more well known. OK, he only released the one album but what an album! This music is quite simply beautiful, inspiring, well written and well performed. He does not do anything too fancy but instead sticks to playing a good range of music that is obviously written from the heart. If you read more about his tragic life and listen to many of his lyrics it brings even more poignancy to the music.
The highlight on this album for me is Milk and Honey, which was later covered by Nick Drake. I have rarely heard such a haunting song and the lyrics are superb.
If you like the more well know artists such as Donovan or Dylan then you would be a fool not to buy this album too.
