Description: Sacred or profane, good vs. evil, yin/yang, they all speak to human nature. Written in the mid-seventies, "Jeannine" remains high in my set list and throughout the years she has attracted many others who wish to play along. On this version, I'm blessed to have Marian McConnell, Greg Trafidlo, and Steve Langston joining me in the studio.
In don't who "Jeannine" really is, but she embodies the joys and pains we sometimes experience when we put it all on the line.
Let me know how she affects you.

nice movement . I enjoy the story song and conversational tone

This is so nicely done. The percussion sounds like chicken-shakers, done to really good effect. Takes me back to some of the pensive, early post-Christy Minstrels Kenny Rogers sounds. Maybe Jeannine was a close cousin of Ruby and Lucille?

Great song Frank. This song captures the feel of great folk songs like those by Cate Wolfe and other traditionalist. Good musical arrangement and great harmonies. For those who love folk, this song should do very well. It has my vote. Good work Frank.
