I put on what I thought was Bobby Bare Jr’s new record the other day only to be surprised by a much older and grizzly voice that clearly belonged to his father the legendary country star Bobby Bare.
This is his first studio record in 10 years and it has been produced by his son Bobby Bare Jr. And in this case the producer has taken the classic country sound and updated it so subtly that this would fit on a classic country radio format or an eclectic AAA format.
I can’t even get into Bobby’s life, music and recording career (he’s got over 40 albums to his credit) but if you’re interested head over to AllMusic.com for the wrapup. One of the recurring themes in his life has been his collaboration with Shel Silverstein and this record is no different with the recording of the Silverstein tune “Balld Of Lucy Jordan” . The name of the new record is The Moon Was Blue and is due out on Dualtone on 10.04.05.
