    Nothing becomes a legend more than anonymity, and that's just what Frank Christian had before his belated (official) recorded debut in the '90s. Making up for lost time, he soon began releasing albums at a regular clip, showing the rest of the world what his cult following had known for years--that his guitar, voice, and pen were mighty instruments worthy of close attention.
    While there are several strong original compositions here, including the sinister-sounding "Gary's Blues" and rollicking plaint "Can't You Believe Me," Christian's gift as an interpreter is more prominently displayed here than on previous efforts. He slips from the pastoral folkiness of Gordon Lightfoot's "Did She Mention My Name" to the decadent artsong of Jaques Brel's "Port of Amsterdam" without missing a beat. It's this eclecticism that informs his guitar and vocal work as well, making him a truly well-rounded artist.
