• Frankie Lee SIMS - Walking with Frankie

Frankie Lee Sims is certainly not amongst the greatest innovators of rhythm and blues and certainly not very famous. He did however have a very original sound which did help him to sell enough records, particularly in America's south to ensure he was signed to four record labels during his brief career.

This collection of his very limited recorded legacy is the most complete attempted and the first to gather together all 18 of his original released recordings in one place along with a further 11 tracks which were not issued at the time. Standout tracks include 'Lucy Mae Blues', 'Walking With Frankie' and 'She Likes To Boogie Real Low'.

Frankie's music was powered by an undisputed approach to the blues. His vocals are similar in delivery to Brownie McGhee and his guitar technique certainly brings Lightening Hopkins and Smokey Hogg to mind.
