A perennial favourite which has been re-released time and time again, Frankie Ford, who was born in 1939, will be forever known as the singer of “Sea Cruise”. The recording was originally recorded by Huey Piano Smith and current understanding is that the Ace Record company decided to replace Smith’s vocal with Ford’s. The Frankie Ford version was recorded in 1959 and provided them with a million seller. Ford still lives in New Orleans. Sue issued it on WI 366.
