Editorial Reviews

Bare had flirted with the sly songs of Shel Silverstein, but this 1972 concept LP saw their marriage blossom beautifully. This classic stayed on the country charts for 30 weeks, and this 2-CD set adds 16 other Silverstein songs sung by Bobby; includes the hits Marie Laveau; Daddy What If (featuring young Bobby, Jr.); Sylvia's Mother; Singin' in the Kitchen; Alimony; Back in Huntsville Again , and more!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Shel Silverstein/Bobby Bare motherlode September 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Writer Shel Silverstein had several high-profile admirers in Nashville, notably Johnny Cash, who struck gold with "A Boy Named Sue," as well as Waylon Jennings and Bobby Bare, who each recorded about a bazillion of his songs. In 1973, the boozy, laconic Bare commissioned Silverstein to write an LP's worth of songs for what would become Lullabys, Legends And Lies, a concept album on RCA that yielded two chart-topping hits ("Marie Laveaux" and "Daddy, What If," a duet with his son, Bobby Bare, Jr.) and put Bare's then-floundering career back on an even keel.

Silverstein and Bare's partnership continued for years, and this deluxe, 2-CD reissue includes not just the Lullabys album, but over a dozen other tracks recorded in the decade that followed. The collection is one of the finer examples of the positive side of industry consolidation, since it includes a bunch of great, wonderfully offensive novelty songs recorded in the early '80s when Bobby was on Columbia. Cheerfully obnoxious tunes like "Quaaludes Again," "Tequila Sheila" and "Numbers" are really what cemented Bare's place in the outlaw pantheon, and it's great to hear them all together, better still to have them so handily placed in context, along with a couple dozen other Silverstein chestnuts. This stuff obviously isn't for everyone, but for the right folks, this will be a goldmine. Let's hope Sony-BMG keeps up the good work with these multi-label mash-ups, 'cause discs like this show the results can be pretty cool! (DJ Joe Sixpack)

Format:Audio CD
The lengthy artistic collaboration between country singer Bobby Bare and author/poet/cartoonist/songwriter Shel Silverstein began in earnest with this 1973 LP. At the time, Bare had been regularly charting country hits for fifteen years, and Silverstein had found great success as a songwriter with the Irish Rovers (1968's "The Unicorn") Johnny Cash (1969's "A Boy Named Sue"), Loretta Lynn (1971's "One's on the Way"), and Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show (1972's "Sylvia's Mother"). Bare himself covered "Sylvia's Mothers" and rode it to #12 on the country chart and subsequently invited Silverstein to write him a theme album. Bare self produced the album in the Spring of 1973.

Silverstein's witty, humorous and ultimately affectionate songs found a terrific interpreter in Bare. As a singer who could be arch and coy at the same time, Bare explored both the warmth and tongue-in-cheek nature of Silverstein's works. Recorded in-studio in front of a small group of family and friends, Bare's spoken word introductions and the audience's laughter provides continuity between tall tales of Paul Bunyan, voodoo, magic, swamps, bikers and robots. The album's hits include the tale of a New Orleans voodoo queen, "Marie Lavaux," a duet with Bare's then five-year old son Bobby Jr., "Daddy What If," and a bluesy tune of brawling, "The Winner."

RCA Legacy's reissue adds a second disc that includes Bare's earlier version of "Sylvia's Mother," which isn't nearly as bombastic as the Silverstein-produced version by Dr. Hook, and a sampling from the next eight years of Bare/Silverstein collaborations on RCA and Columbia. Highlights include the children's chorus accompanying "Singin' in the Kitchen," the ironic prophesy of "Brian Hennessey," and the touchingly sad, "This Guitar Is For Sale.

5.0 out of 5 stars feels like home December 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bobby Bare has always been able to project the feel of a "culture" I grew up in and miss terribly.
To hear him sing and listen to the words peels away 60 years and I can see, hear, feel, and even taste
and smell the total experience and of my youth. Rosalies Good Eats Cafe was in every little cowtown
railroad town and truckstop of my Wyoming. If you arent a bit older or from an older west and midwest
you probably wont know or care about what I'm talking about, but it was a harder but ever so much
more a more civil caring and less violent life.

Format:Audio CD
When singer Bobby Bare and songwriter Shel Silverstein got together in 1973, they recorded 14 great Silverstein songs. It was pure Americana: myths, vignettes, tall tales, and novelty tunes filled with Shel's wry, risque, and sentimental lyrics, delivered in Bare's famously warm baritone. The album spent 30 weeks on the Billboard country charts, becoming his most popular release. "Marie Laveau" and "Daddy What If" were hit singles. This deluxe 2007 reissue includes a second CD with 16 additional Silverstein covers that Bare cut in the 70s and 80s, making this collection even more essential. A complete list of tracks and timings:

CD 1

1. Lullabys, Legends and Lies (2:52)
2. Paul (4:19)
3. Marie Lavaux (3:09)
4. Daddy What If (3:10)

6. The Winner (5:20)
7. In the Hills of Shiloh (3:57)
8. She's My Ever Lovin' Machine (3:47)
9. The Mermaid (3:21)
10. Rest Awhile (4:21)
11. Bottomless Well (5:55)
12. True Story (1:28)
13. Sure Hit Songwriter's Pen (4:33)
14. Rosalie's Good Eats Cafe (8:10)
