3 x CD - Jackson C. Frank - The Complete Recordings (BING 105)

In a six panel cardboard wallet.

"Released in conjunction with Jim Abbott's book, 'Jackson C. Frank: The Clear Hard Light of Genius', The Complete Recordings contains a total of 67 tracks, 24 of which have never appeared before. Every song has been mastered or remastered, a number of them straight from the original, brittle reel-to-reels on which they were originally laid down."

**The song titles of LP6: K-2 & K-6 (CD3: 11 & 15) appear to be swapped -- a mistake that persists from the previous Jackson C. Frank - Blues Run The Game release. The track listed as "Half The Distance" is clearly "Night of the Blues," the same tune as the alternate take LP5: J-6 (CD3: 8).

The song "Juliette" is also known as "Forest Of Eden" on other Jackson C. Frank releases.
