folk singer-songwriter acoustic 60s melancholy Lyrics
: Jackson C. Frank lyrics
(Buffalo, New York, March 2, 1943 - Great Barrington, Massachusetts, March 3, 1999)
Jackson Carey Frank was born in the 1940's, and grew up in Buffalo (New York). Whilst at school he suffered in a terrible accident where a furnace exploded, and he was left physically scarred for the rest of his life.
However, many of his classmates had died in the accident so he was quite fortunate. During his time in hospital, his school teacher would come in with a guitar and teach him bits and pieces.
When he was 21 he got an insurance cheque for the accident, and decided to travel across to the UK. Here he would meet Paul Simon and many other folk legends, and would join in with the folk revival scene of the 60's. He only managed to release one full album, but songs have been covered by such artists as Bert Jansch, Nick Drake and even Novi Split.
'Milk and Honey' also recently featured on the soundtrack to Vincent Gallo's 'Brown Bunny'.
