Label: Real Gone Music
Format: LP Vinyl

Originally released in 1972 on Vanguard Records, Bob Frank's self-titled debut album took elements of Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Ian Tyson and filtered it thru a pot-smoked haze and the infusion of Frank's long-time friend, Memphis guru Jim Dickinson. Dickinson and Frank shared a mutual admiration that ran so deep that on Dickinson's own 1972 debut album Dixie Fried (released on Atlantic Records), he recorded one of Bob Frank's songs “Wild Bill Jones.” But despite the Dickinson/Memphis connection, Bob Frank's only LP for Vanguard became a forgotten, hard to find relic - until Light in the Attic reissued it to great acclaim in 2014. Now, from Real Gone comes more 1972 Vanguard Bob Frank recordings (all previously unreleased studio songs) coupled with a live set from the Old Quarter in Houston 1973 (the first-ever vintage live Bob Frank recordings to be released). Includes an insert with extensive liner notes detailing Frank's career self-sabotage by Pat Thomas and the director of the documentary Within A Few Degrees: A Little Gest of Bob Frank, Isaac Pingree. 20 tracks, all unreleased, pressed in stems ‘n' seeds “marijuana” vinyl.
