For the first time on CD, Raven presents two of the finest Country albums of all time by Bobby Bare - 'Bare' (1978) and Sleeper Wherever I Fall (1978). On Bare, Bobby is joined by song-writer Shel Silverstein for a series of freewheeling and humorous vignettes such as 'Yard Full of Rusty Cars', 'Greasy Grit Gravy', 'Too Many Nights Alone' (US Country #29) and 'Sing for the Song' and Bare's peerless covers of Donald Schlitz's 'The Gambler' and Larry Wilkerson's 'Finger on the Button'. Helping out on backing vocals were Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Silverstein. Sleeper wherever I Fall was another stellar release featuring memorable and distinctive covers of Silbar/Lorber's 'Sleep Tight, Good Night Man' (US Country #11), the Rodney Crowell gem 'On a Real Good Night' and some vintage Rock gone Country in Gene Clark's 'I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better' and Jagger / Richard's 'The Last Time'. Embellished with two 1983 bonus tracks, this is Bobby Bare at the top of his game.
