Folksinger Bob Frank is a Vietnam veteran from Memphis TN who walked away from the music business for decades after recording a critically acclaimed debut album for Vanguard in 1972. Despite his M.I.A status his reputation as a songwriter held up and his old songs were recorded by other artists, including notably Chris LeDoux. The now Oakland Ca based irrigation specialist and father of four returned to recording in the new millennium after discovering on the internet that his long forgotten early 70's album was an expensive collector's item. Circa 2000, he began recording again and started his own Bowstring label which self released three new CD's worth of material. Collaborations with John Murry resulted in two new albums of murder ballads released on Murry's Evangeline imprint. In 2008 Memphis International Records compiled a best of from those three Bowstring albums called Red Neck, Blue Collar. Read more on Last.fm.
