Jackson C. Frank
I Want To Be Alone (Dialogue)

In the realms of American folk music, few artists have been able to achieve the beauty that Jackson C. Frank captured on his one and only, self-titled, record in 1965.  Haunted by a fiery explosion at his elementary school which killed several of his classmates and left him with severe burns, Frank would go on to write and record some of the deepest, gorgeous acoustic music ever heard, before disappearing almost entirely after succumbing to mental instability and paralyzing anxiety.  He would record a handful more times later on in his life, however, most of it would not be released until a resurgence in interest in him occurred after his death.  If you’ve not checked out this record, I implore you to do so, it’s hard to find pieces of music filled with as much honesty, sadness, sweetness, and vulnerability as Frank puts into his.
