Learning the Game: Sandy Denny and Jackson C. Frank

Mick Houghton, 'I've Always Kept a Unicorn' (Faber), March 2015

"I think my first songwriting influences came from somebody called Jackson Frank. He's an American bloke who made one album over here just called Jackson C. Frank. Paul Simon produced it. I really loved the way he wrote, and he has probably had more effect on me than  anyone. I can still hear his influences in my songwriting now." Sandy Denny, 1972
