Jackson C. Frank was Sandy Denny's boyfriend in 1967-68 and died in 1999. Sandy played tambourine on the B side of the 1965 single Blues Run the Game / Can't Get Away From My Love, which was her earliest appearance on a record. These two tracks became available on CD for the first time on the 2003 2 CD “Deluxe Edition” of Blues Run the Game. Sandy Denny recorded three of Frank's songs by herself, Blues Run the Game, Milk and Honey, and You Never Wanted Me.
