Clarence 'Frogman' Henry
Clarence 'Frogman' Henry was born in Algiers, New Orleans, on March 19, 1937, and after dabbling in music at high school, he became an overnight star in 1957 when his novelty rock'n'roll number, 'Aint Got No Home' (where he imitated frog noises), was a No.30 hit on Argo.
For a while it looked as if he was a one-hit wonder but he came back again in 1961 with Bobby Charles' composition 'But I Do', a compulsive slice of New Orleans R&B produced by Paul Gayten and Allen Toussaint which reached No. 4 spot in the charts. He consolidated this success with a series of minor hits in the early Sixties, and today is one of the few artists still putting down 'oldies but goodies' R&B in the clubs of New Orleans.
