Editorial Reviews

New Orleans R&B wouldn't be the same without Clarence-he was a fixture there for decades after his 1956 smash Ain't Got No Home . Here's that classic; his hits But I Do; You Always Hurt the One You Love; Lonely Street; On Bended Knees; A Little Too Much , and more!

I can't resist singing along and dancing--it's very therapeutic.

If you're a 50's R&B collector, you probably own this by now, but if you just like the song 'ain't got no home', this one is definately worth picking up. I've had my copy since the age of 14 or so and it's been played a million times! The first 3 or 4 songs have that same fun, bouncy feel. As for the rest, you'll hear a good sampling of the man's work. It may take a little to get used to the rest of the alblum, as the later material has a different sound, (mostly mellow love ballads) but altogether - not bad! If you like New Orleans sounds of Fats, Smiley Lewis, Lloyd Price or Huey "piano" Smith, You'll like this one.

Although "Frogman" may have broken into radio play with his novelty song "Ain't Got No Home (I'm a Lonely Frog)" this CD contains much that is enduring in R&B. The liner notes reveal that Henry's idol was Fats Domino, and one listen proves that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Cut after cut contains the rolling piano and lyrical phrasing Fats made famous. I found the arrangements infectious and the pacing enjoyable. This is music which can be played for your grandmother or your grandchild, guaranteed to bring a smile. Buy it!

As a native New Orleanian,I can tell you that this music epitomizes this cities' past influence on rock and roll as well as R&B.And Algiers is in the city of New Orleans on the West bank.

Clarence Henry was born in Algiers - no not that Algiers but a little burgh in Louisiana - on March 19, 1937. At age 19, and having no previous recording experience, he managed to get himself a contract with Argo, cutting the novelty Ain't Got No Home b/w Troubles, Troubles. Released in late 1956 as Argo 5259 with Paul Gayten & His Orchestra backing, and billed as Clarence Henry "Frog Man" because of his vocal tricks on the A-side, the disc reached # 3 R&B and # 20 Billboard Pop Top 100 in February 1957, making him a true overnight success.

But when nothing else immediately clicked on either chart, the bosses at Argo figured they had themselves another of those "one hit wonders" that seemed to be coming and going with regular monotony throughout the industry. Indeed, even though the label stuck with him into the 1960s, it wasn't until 1961 that he returned to the charts with the Bobby Charles-penned But I Do which brought him back to prominence by reaching # 4 Billboard Pop Hot 100 and # 9 R&B in April b/w Just My Baby And Me on Argo 5378. (note: if you have an original Argo 5378 45-rpm it may show it as I Don't Know Why, although most pressings show But I Do ... now, generally, it's shown as I Don't Know Why (But I Do)).

In June he was back with a cover of the 1944 Mills Brothers hit, You Always Hurt The One You Love taking it to # 11 R&B and # 12 Hot 100 b/w Little Suzy on Argo 5388, and three months later he had Lonely Street (not the same as the Andy Williams 1959 hit) reach # 19 R&B and # 57 Hot 100 b/w Why Can't You on Argo 5395.

Classic Blues from a greatly under rated entertainer. Clarence Henry is one of my favorites along with Fats Domino. I was fortunate to see them together once about 27 years ago in New Orleans -- what a memorable afternoon. This CD contains the best of Frogman and brings back fond memories of him singing and "movin" around the stage! Highly recommended for any music collection.

Frogman has a fine repertoire of New Orleans fashioned love songs, blues, broken heart and novelty songs; something for every mood.
There are 18 fine pieces of studio work that show Henry's ability to sing with passion, humor and simpatico.
His piano work is delightful and the musical arrangements are diverse and interesting (not repeat cookie cutter backup work for every song).
Henry has been influenced greatly by Fats Domino and the New Orleans sound, he has also contributed to the refinement and popularizing of that sound.
A nice bonus with this CD is the inclusion of downloading MP3 copies.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

I bought the CD for only one song and found I enjoyed all the oldies very well.
It works on long journey's and jingles the energy levels in my brain to a degree that time doesn't register. I leave, I listen and I am there . . .
