    Frank Stokes (1888-1955)

    Heroes of the Blues Trading Tee Card #5

    Art by R. Crumb, Text by Stephen Calt

    Born in 1888 in Whitehaven, Tennessee, Frank Stokes began playing around 1900, and pursued his career in Memphis, where he became one of the city's most popular entertainers. Between 1927 and 1929, he recorded thirty-six side for two labels, usually in tandem with his accompanist Dan Sane. His best-known tune was "Crump Don't 'low it," which referred to the mayor of Memphis and was nationally associated with composer W.C. Handy. Stokes died in 1955.

    A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this Keep on Truckin' Apparel exclusive t-shirt will be donated to Music Maker Relief Foundation.
