Jackson C. Frank’s self-titled debut record is everyone’s favorite folk album. Remember Vincent Gallo’s The Brown Bunny? Yeah right, this one song. It’s Frank’s Milk and Honey.

Now you can learn more about this half forgotten singer-songwriter by reading his biography The Clear, Hard Light Of Genius written by Jim Abbott.

The story of Jackson C. Frank is tragic. The victim of a school fire in his youth, struggling with homelessness and mental illness throughout his life, half-blinded in old age before his death in 1999, Frank met continuous obstacles. And yet he enjoyed a shining moment with the release of Jackson C. Frank on Columbia Records in 1965.
