Sorry to report no more Seacruises for Frankie. I’ve sung that song for years and it’s a cracker, but there is an odd tale to it
The wonderful Huey ‘Piano’ Smith and his Clowns recorded it but then they either re-recorded it as a backing for Frankie or maybe wiped off Huey’s vocal and stuck Frankie on there. Why?
Because Frankie was white and therefore easier to sell.
It’s a sad tale but I guess not Frankie’s fault. It’s enough to give you the Tuberculucus
