The Great Medical Menagerist

by Harmonica Frank FloydHarmonica Frank Floyd


2 New & Used Starting at $4.32


I first discovered "Harmonica" Frank as I delved into the curious and ribald world of risque blues. Mr. Floyd is responsible for some of the biggest screams in this genre. One of these definitely not radio-friendly tunes, "Shampoo" is reissued here along with the rest of his sputtering content. The Yosemite Sam of the singing hobos is earthy and unique. Cutting his teeth in carnival, theater and medicine shows his hillbilly blues gets right to the point, before the cops show up. The glossy booklet fills in gaps on the life of this little-known bridge between rural music of white and black derivations. Definitely one of a kind and another example of the important preservationists made by Genes Records.
