But I Do!,
This review is from: Ain't Got No Home: The Best of Clarence "Frogman" Henry (Audio CD)
Having had this album for Christmas it was every bit as good as I hoped. Although not a completely definitive "Frogman" album it does contain his two most well known songs: The bizarre yet brilliant "Ain't got no home" and a superb song that features on the Forrest Gump soundtrack "But I Do". The only other song I know well which isn't featured here is "Sea Cruise" and although a great song is no major loss.
For those who may have heard Ain't got no home and been put off by the singing like a girl and a frog ... this is the only track on the album that features him singing this way, the occasion slip into a deeper tone sounds similar to his frog voice but all the rest of the songs feature him singing in a style very similar to Fats Domino (Henry's inspiration)
This album is well worth the money though people may want to have a brief listen to some of the songs to make sure its to their taste. A great album of the work of a little known quality singer.

Sea Cruise wouldn't be on this c.d. as it was recorded by Frankie Ford & not Clarence.
if you want Sea Cruise, get "The Best Of" or a "Greatest Hits" by Frankie Ford.
I hope this helps
