Squeeze It Easy

Bob is in Arizona even as we speak, working on another CD at Barbara’s Place, in Tolleson. This one will be another collection of nothing but Bob Frank songs, but a couple of them are co-writes, such as the beautiful border ballad, Anna Maria, which Bob co-wrote with Paul Compton, in Memphis. Produced by Chuck Giamalvo, it should be out in a couple of months.

Here’s some strong praise for Bob’s songs and CD’s, written by Roy Peak, a remarkable songwriter himself:

Bob has a new CD out now, Twilight in Tolleson. This one is a collection of 12 songs that Bob co-wrote with Chuck Giamalvo, in Tolleson, Arizona. Chuck produced it, and it’s a totally different sound for Bob than you’ve heard on any of his other CD’s. The songs are different from what Bob usually writes, more straight up country and pop from a timeless place. His guitar and vocals are super strong on this one. The accompaniment is just right, toned down, laid back, no wasted licks, no unnecessary shenanigans. Just good, tasty music. Buy it now from cdbaby.com, or order it direct from Bob.
