Jesse Fuller - Frisco Bound

`Frisco Bound' stems from two sessions held seven years apart. The first sixteen tracks were waxed in 1955 for the tiny Cavalier logo, while the remaining six, from a 1962 album on Harry Oster's Folklyric imprint, include his best-known song, the poignant rag-derived `San Francisco Bay Blues.'

“Jesse `Lone Cat' Fuller was a Bay Area folk & blues singer who died in 1976. In his long career he hoboed, acted in movies, sang on the street, shined shoes, and owned a hot dog stand at a movie studio. He's best remembered though as the author of `San Francisco Bay Blues,' and for his unusual performance as a one-man band playing blues, spirituals, children's songs, railroad songs, waltzes and jazz. He invented the ingenious `footdella' to play bass, set up washboards, cymbals, kazoos and harmonicas that, along with his 12-string, accompanied him in his one man show. All these are demonstrated on the reissue of 18 favorites plus four previously unreleased cuts from 1955 and six from 1962. It's an historic album full of his fun music and unique style.”
