The Scenic Route

This is that legendary secret album of Bob’s — never released before, available only on CDR — produced by John Murry (This Graceless Age, Califorlornia) at Tim Mooney’s Closer Recording studio in San Francisco, back in 2009-10, just before Tim died.

It’s just what the doctor ordered for all those whose taste in music has progressed (or degenerated, depending on one’s point of view) to the outré, the outrageous, the unique and the unusual. Fifteen songs, all written by Bob himself, over a period of 35 years, from the sweet and warm, through the strange and haunting, all the way out to the crazy and unimaginable. Songs like “Vivian O’Blivion” and “Robbed by a Hooker” — produced in a manner that you will never hear anywhere else on this planet.

For more information on this little gem, contact Bob: bob@bobfranksongs.com

Or, you’re a brave soul, willing to venture into the unknown, you can buy it right now! It’s not an actual CD, it’s a CDR, in wav file.

Here’s a sample of what it sounds like:

“On the Road”

Here’s Bob himself, planting redwood trees in the creek behind his house. A thousand years from now, when he comes back through here, he’ll check on ’em and see how they’re doing.

    I want the 1972 vanguard albun

  4. Victor, if all I’ve heard from Vanguard is true, you will soon be able to buy that album, on vinyl as well as CD. They’re reissuing it for the first time ever on a label called “Light in the Attic.” Not sure when it will be out, but sometime this year…. hide and watch.

    I just found my old copy of the first album, bought shortly after it’s release and we have transferred it to digital. Absolutely amazing, I had forgotten how wonderful this album is. Now I have found this website and more Bob Frank music. This album has been a special family treasure with many of the songs being part of family sing along with my brother on guitar. Thank you.
