Frank Frost - Live In Lucerne - 2004.

This is Frank's last recording and it is his only live album. It was recorded on his 1998 European tour at the Lucerne Blues Festival in Switzerland and features producer, guitarist Fred James and ex-Amazing Rhythm Aces bass player Jeff Davis, along with longtime drummer Sam Carr.
Frank passed away in 1999. He was considered to be the greatest of the second generation of Delta Blues harmonica players. He began his career, though, as a backing guitarist for Robert Nighthawk and Sonny Boy Williamson (II). It was Sonny Boy who inspired him to pick up the harmonica and the influence is obvious. He and drummer Sam Carr formed The Jelly Roll Kings in the late 50s as a duo with Frank playing guitar and harp on a rack. They soon added Jack Johnson on guitar and bass and it was this unit that recorded for Sun/Phillips, Jewel and Earwig.
Frank hooked up with Fred James and Bluesland Productions in the late 80s and together they recorded for Appaloosa/Ichiban, Evidence and Hightone. Look for more from Frank Frost on R.O.A.D. Records in the coming years.
