Jackson C. Frank is the 1965 self-titled album by Jackson C. Frank, released by Columbia (EMI) (33SX 1788). It was produced by Paul Simon, and both Al Stewart and Art Garfunkel attended the recording. Frank was apparently so nervous at the time that, in order to play and sing, he had to have screens around him. The album was recorded in less than three hours in London at CBS Studios.
"Blues Run the Game" has been recorded by many musicians, notably Simon and Garfunkel, Sandy Denny, Counting Crows, British folk guitarist Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, Bonnie Dobson, Mark Lanegan and Laura Marling.
The track "I Want to Be Alone", also known as "Dialogue," appeared on the soundtrack for the film Daft Punk's Electroma.
