CD Reviews

Blues Fun? You Bet!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's too bad Frank Stokes gets short-shrifted when compared with more voodoo-istic, depressed blues players of the 20's. He and partner Dan Sane are no less virtuoso just because they play really funny stuff ("Mr. Crump Don't Like It.") Here is a blues album you can listen to without intellectualizing it, although lots of references only make sense in historical context. And that voice! It's a curious mix of yelling and harmonizing that has no equal. Mr Crump May Not Like It, but you will!"
Coolest blues musician of the time

"Frank Stokes took blues to a unique level by never really being down. He seemed happy to have the blues. I love this CD and anything I hear by him. He was into his own thing. His style of blues branched off from the mainstream into something that hasn't been equaled. Buy this!!!"

"For anyone into country blues this is a must have. It is absolutely delightful."
