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!

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.

Format: Audio CD
Born in New Orleans in early 1937, the 19-year Clarence Henry Jr. had his first American R`n'B hit in December 1956 with his self-penned "Ain't Got No Home".

In one of the verses of Argo 5259, he began aping and croaking a 'lonely' frog - and the nickname stuck with him for everything afterwards. Which is a shame in some ways, because it kind of pigeonholed him as a one-trick pony - a type of novelty act - and this wonderful 18-track US-only CD compilation from 1994 will go a long way to changing that hopefully - because frankly it's a bit of a revelation.

Here's a track-by-track breakdown - all songs are Argo USA 7" singles (Chess label subsidiary) except 9 and 12, which are album cuts (42:01 minutes):

1. Ain't Got No Home (1956, Argo 5259, A)
2. Troubles, Troubles (1956, Argo 5259, B)
3. Lonely Tramp (1957, Argo 5266, A)
4. It Won't Be Long (1957, 5273, A)
5. Baby Baby Please (1958, Argo 5305, A)
6. I'm In Love (1958, Argo 5305, B)
7. (I Don't Know Why) But I Do [aka "But I Do"] (March 1961, Argo 5378, A)
8. Just My Baby And Me (1961, Argo 5378, B)
9. Your Picture (1961 USA LP "You Always Hurt The One You Love" on Argo 4009)
10. You Always Hurt The One You Love (May 1961, Argo 5388, A)
11. Lonely Street (August 1961, Argo 5395, A)
12. I Love You, Yes I Do (1961 USA LP "You Always Hurt The One You Love" on Argo 4009)
13. Standing In The Need Of Love (1961, Argo 5401, A)
14. On Bended Knees (1961, Argo 5401, B)
15. A Little Too Much (1961, Argo 5408, A)
16. Lost Without You (1962, Argo 5414, A)
17. Long Lost And Worried (1964, Argo 5480, A)
18.

Clarence "Frogman" Henry. Ain't Got No Home, THE BEST OF CLARENCE "FROGMAN" HENRY.
The Frogman's signature rockabilly song, "Ain't Got No Home" was recorded back in 1956, just about the
time I was starting to buy 45rpm singles by Elvis Presley. I heard the song "Ain't Got No Home" recently as one of the background music songs at the local Ocean State Job Lot store, and decided to buy this album from Amazon. It certainly sounds a lot better on the CD than it does on YouTube. You get what you pay for. The included songs are as follows:
1.) AIN'T GOT NO HOME.
2.) TROUBLES, TROUBLES.
3.) LONELY TRAMP.
4.) IT WON'T BE LONG.
5.) BABY BABY PLEASE.
6.) I'M IN LOVE.
7.) (I DON'T KNOW WHY) BUT I DO.
8.) JUST MY BABY AND ME.
9.) YOUR PICTURE.
10.) YOU ALWAYS HURT THE ONE YOU LOVE.
11.) LONELY STREET.
12.) I LOVE YOU, YES I DO.
13.) STANDING IN THE NEED OF LOVE.
14.) ON BENDED KNEES.
15.) A LITTLE TOO MUCH.
16.) LOST WITHOUT YOU.
17.) LONG LOST AND WORRIED.
18.) LOOKING BACK.
I did a little background research on Wikipedia, and found that Frogman, in 1964 did an opening act for eighteen Beatles concerts in the U.S. and Canada. Clarence Frogman Henry is the 265th inductee into the Rockabilly Hall Of Fame, and in April 2007, he was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall Of Fame. The songs "Ain't Got No Home", "(I Don't Know Why) But I Do", "You Only Hurt The One You Love", and "Lonely Street" were hit singles. Another song, "A Little Too Much" is also excellent. On this CD, the songs and performances range from good to excellent, and the CD sound is excellent as well. Buy it.
