30 Songs, 1 Hour 56 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Not only did this 1973 album bring new life to Bobby Bare’s career, but it’s also one of outlaw country’s very best. Bare’s burly baritone delivers the brilliantly quirky songs of Shel Silverstein (the wickedly funny “Sure Hit Songwriters Pen,” the outrageous ode to Paul Bunyan, “Paul”), and he tugs heartstrings with the father-and-son tearjerker “Daddy What If.” Best of all, he brings the material to life with an irresistible blend of humor, heart, and down-home charisma.

This is a great one to get!!

I grew up a child of the 70's listening to my dad's LP of the first 14 songs (originally on the album). I was so happy to see it is on iTunes, and with the bonus songs 15-30. Especially love "Daddy What If, The Winner, Rest Awhile, and Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe". Oh heck, I just love them all. Good story songs. Hooray for Bobby Bare!
