Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Though Bobby Bare is not as well remembered as many of his outlaw country compatriots of the 1970s and '80s, his long career was instrumental in blurring the lines between country and folk music, and in bringing pop and rock influences to Nashville production. Collecting songs recorded between 1978 and 1983, Bare Tracks highlights hits and misses alike. Boudleaux Bryant, Guy Clark, and Tom T. Hall all contribute songs, but the chime-in-if-you're-feelin'-it atmosphere of Shel Silverstein's novelty songs like "Greasy Grit Gravy" (featuring Willie Nelson and a cast of characters), "Tequila Sheila," and "Numbers" (a No. 1 hit) are where the real fun begins. Guest appearances come from Charlie Daniels and Rosanne Cash, who contributes a fine duet on husband Rodney Crowell's "No Memories Hangin' Round." --Alexandra Russell

3.0 out of 5 stars Bare Tracks Through Moderate Material February 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Bobby Bare is undeniably a legendary songwriter and performer; when he is at his best, as on his classic "Lullaby's, Legends and Lies", he exudes an intelligence and charm that elude most performers today. Over the course of his long and varied career, Bare has recorded for several labels, and this release, "Bare Tracks", attempts to summarize his seven-year stint at Columbia, with mixed results. One of Bare's strengths is his ability to transcend the most mediocre of material and unfortunately, there's plenty to be found on this release. When he and his songwriting collaborator Shel Silverstein are at their peak (as on the two best-known tracks here, "Numbers" and "Tequila Shiela"), Bare is simply unstoppable, with all of his prodigious talent on display. Unfortunately, several of Silverstein's other songs seem unmotivated and careless; Bare fights hard to maintain shreds of dignity in tracks like "Greasy Grit Gravy", "Food Blues" and "Diet Song", but succumbs to the sub-par material. He turns in some stunning work on two Guy Clark cuts, "Let Him Roll" and "New Cut Road", but the album as a whole seems distant and unstable. Personal Favorites: the sharp commentary on gender communication found in "Numbers"; the twisted tale of a fugitive on the run in "Tequila Shiela"; and the rollicking rhythm bouncing down "New Cut Road". Representative Lyrics: "She said, 'Well, another one of those macho 'matican men/ Trying to grade all women on a scale from one to ten!/ Now you give me an eight?/ Well, that's a generous thing to do/ Now let's just see just how much I give YOU.'" ("Numbers"); "Pour me another tequila, Shiela/ Take off your new satin dress/ I crossed the border/ And I beat the dealer/ For all of the gold in Juarez." ("Tequila Shiela")

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb latter-day recordings from country legend August 9, 1999
Format:Audio CD
By the time Bare arrived at Columbia in the late 70s, he had a long string of hits behind him, crossing back and forth from country to folk to pop. Luckily, his maturity didn't cramp his spirit of adventure. From rowdy live recordings of Shel Silverstein's "Numbers" and "Tequila Sheila" to his duet with Roseanne Cash on Rodney Crowell's "No Memories Hangin' Round," Bare lent considerable charm to these tales of losers, winos, prostitutes and overgrown good ol' boys.
A pre-Kenny Rogers version of "The Gambler" and a half-spoken, half-sung reading of Guy Clark's "Let Him Roll" are good examples of Bare's storytelling ability. His delivery is hypnotic, fleshing out the characters as he lures the listener in. It's a talent learned in front of live audiences, and rarely reproduced in a recording studio.
Pop culture may tend to revere newness and youth, but Bare proves that the patina of experience can be the more valuable quality.
