Song #11: “The Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp”

George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass is another vinyl box set belonging to my father that was never played in the house. I was about 13 years old when I dug it out and listened to it about a hundred times. I listened to all The Beatles records, too, but for some reason songs like The Art of Dying, Run of the Mill, I Dig Love, Apple Scruffs and this song, “The Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll),” appealed to me more than anything he did with The Beatles.

This is before Jeff Lynne got hold of George Harrison and made everything like an E.L.O. record. What a shame that was.
