Walking with Frankie highlights bluesman Frankie Lee Sims' sessions for the New York-based Fire label in 1960. It would take 25 years before the U.K. label Krazy Kat had the good taste to finally release them. These rare 14 tracks find Sims in raw form, more so than his Specialty recordings of the '50s, with reworkings of "Lucy Mae Blues" and "Jelly Roll Baker." Collectors of gutbucket electric Texas blues should definitely seek this out.
