    Description

    Frankie Ford "Let's Take A Sea Cruise" Mono LP Ace 1005 (1957). The title song was one of the fifties most infectious tunes, classic New Orleans, written by Huey "Piano" Smith, whose band also played on Ford's recording. Smith's influence is heavy on the album, as he wrote or co-wrote eight of the twelve tunes. On six of those the young Ford was co-writer, and a very young Malcolm Rebennack -- later known as "Dr. John" -- contributed two tunes as well. Impeccable New Orleans pedigree! This was Ford's only vinyl album release, but he's still performing and recording today. This is as nice a copy of the album we've seen. Condition: NM 8/ NM 8. From the GRT Collection
