Bobby Bare — Hard Time Hungrys ... LP 5.99

A pair of mid 70s album by Bobby Bare – the ambitious, concept-driven Hard Time Hungrys – and the easygoing The Winners & Other Losers – two worthy efforts from one the most unique voices and personalities of his era! Both albums are heavy with songs written by Bare family friend and frequent songwriting partner Shel Silverstein. Johnny Cash gets all the mainstream attention for collaborating with Shel on "A Boy Named Sue", but Shel and Bare have a far richer collaborative history together. Home For The Hungrys tells the story of the impoverished, with the title track, "Back Home In Huntsville Again", "Bottles And Boxes", "Truck Driver, Truck Driver", "The Unemployment Line" and more. The Winners And Other Losers is simply a great batch of tunes, sans concept, with the enduring "Drop Kick Me Jesus", "My Better Half", "Keeping Rosie Proud Of Me" and more. 24 tracks in all.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Bear Family (Germany), Early 50s. New Copy
Weird, wacky stuff that we can't help but like! Jenks Tex Carman was a strange dude who recorded for Capitol in the early 50s – singing pared down country ditties peppered with lots of mush-mouth gibberish that he claimed was Cherokee – it's NOT. He also added lots of odd Hawaiian ... CD
