Bob Frank and John Murry with the Lansky Brothers

Brinkley, Ark. and Other Assorted Love Songs (Evangeline Records)

Frank and Murry must be working through some heartache, or at least drawing from a lifetime of it. With a line like Nothing you could say, nothing you could do/Could bring me back baby, could make me love you, “Hey, Elly” must be one of those “assorted” love songs. The record draws selectively from rock, country, R&B, and soul, but excels in the one thing you can’t quite label: feeling.
