    Frankie Ford "Let's Take A Sea Cruise" LP Ace 1005 (1959). Ford's first release for the famed Ace label went nowhere in 1958, but the following year "Sea Cruise" made him a household name for generations of Rock. It peaked at a respectable #14 on the Hot 100, but has demonstrated more staying power that hundreds of singles that went even higher. Ford's only Ace album was issued to capitalize on that popularity, but it also includes "Alimony," which charted briefly in 1959. Think the New Orleans cats didn't collaborate? Eleven of the 12 songs here were written or co-written (often with each other) by Ford, Huey Smith, and a very young Mac Rebennack (Dr. John)! Condition: EX 7/ EX 7.
