Frankie Lee Sims

Frankie Lee Sims was born on April 30, 1917, in New Orleans, Louisiana and died on May 10, 1970. After four years in the US marines he returned to his music with renewed focus and by the late 1940s had established himself in the Dallas blues scene. He was a cousin of Lightning Hopkins, and is now seen as an important figure in postwar Texas country blues.

This recording was a regional hit in 1957.
