BARE, BOBBY - HARD TIME HUNGRY / THE WINNER ... AND OTHER LOSERS (CD)


"Built around a concept and songs supplied by maverick songwriter/cartoonist/libertine Shel Silverstein, Bobby Bare's "Hard Time Hungrys" is an astounding and affecting chronicle of economic depression and the people most buffeted by it. Recorded in 1975 the album is more timely than ever with its moving and good humoured tales of the disenfranchised and their plight. From light-hearted odes to the life of poverty (Warm And Free, The Unemployment Line) to earthy tales of the hard scrabble (The Farmer Feeds Us All, Two For A Dollar) the album is profound and friendly. The following year Bare cut "The Winner ... And Other Losers" an engaging set that features many highlights including one of the most bizarre spirituals ever committed to wax, "Dropkick Me, Jesus". Remastered from the original master tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and rare photos." (label info) 24 track CD, with 20 pages full colour booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos
