Editorial Reviews

Raven presents, for the first time on CD, one of the greatest live recordings ever! By 1979, BOBBY BARE had been recording for 25 years yet when he strapped on a Fender Telecaster and recorded live in the studio a rough and rowdy album with a bunch of Nashville's finest musicians, he was set to hit new highs in an illustrious career. Down & Dirty was both a glorious last hurrah for the 'outlaw' movement and a touchstone for the 'new country' of current darlings Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson etc. Bare's band rocks and rolls, swings and strolls through 13 tracks from a rejuvenated Bare. The humor is in large supply; the poignancy is everywhere. But it's the tune selection that makes this is such a killer record." For every outrageous Shel Silverstein song (Numbers, Qualudes Again) there is a tender, sensitive or just plain poetic masterpiece. In the words of Bill Graham, "Bobby Bare is the Bruce Springstein of country music". Embellished with eight stunning bonus tracks, circa 1978-1980, this is good time outlaw country at its finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The True Country Outlaw November 26, 2006
I can't add much more to the terrific and comprehensive album review that sums up in a nutshell what Bobby Bare has done for Country Music.

I have this album as well as the bonus tracks on vinyl and although the quality of the tracks are excellent and the fact that I have already converted them to a cd, this has not stopped me ordering this album.

There has never been an equal to Bobby Bare in song rendition. He interprets the songs with such meaning that you can actually live inside of them.

Because he was so many years ahead of the dreary country scene at the time, he never received the recognition that was due to him. Therefore, this album will be appreciated in this day and age much more than it did in its time.

I rate this as a true masterpiece from a man that should have been inducted to the Country Hall Of Fame a long time ago. If I as a South African can appreciate the "Bare" then all I can say is "Wake up American country fans and smell the roses". Do something about this injustice to Country Music

5.0 out of 5 stars It's been a long time coming December 7, 2006
Thank heavens they finally released "Down & Dirty" on CD! My cassette of it gave way years ago and I have been searching for the CD since. This is truly one of the best recordings ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars A country western classic March 26, 2007
What a pleasure to discover that one of the all-time great country-western albums was finally on a CD. Bobby Bare is a singer's singer, a favorite of better known performers like Willie Nelson and Kris Kristoffersen. When he teamed with songwriter Shel Silverstein on rollicking ballads like "Pour Me Another Tequilla, Sheila" and "Numbers," the result was ingenious, literate, up-tempo fun. From the sad tale of bluesman "Blind Willie Harper" to the lyrical truth that "Some Days are Diamonds," there isn't a wrong note in this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars love it but how live is it? September 26, 2008
Bare is awesome, song selection great, but the crowd noise sounds canned. Listen to the start of each song. Is it live in the studio with all the musicians playing at the same time (and massive applause and sound effects added later) or live on stage with an actual crowd there? I think Bobby Bare is fantastic, but the "liveness" sounds manufactured here. Thoughts anyone?

5.0 out of 5 stars Down & Dirty Plus December 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a LP in the eighties. However, the record got scratched up and was hard to play. It took me a long time to fine a cd of Down & Dirty. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bobby Bare returns! August 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
I hadn't listened to songs by Bobby Bare since the 1980's. One of my friends got me turned on to his music again. This is a CD form of a vinyl record album I owned years ago but don't have anything to play it on now! Thanks so much for bringing his music back in this form. You can listen to this CD and feel like you are right there at the party where he is performing!

This CD features some of Bobby Bare's more rare recordings of hard to find songs, from later in his career. Brings fresh breath to these songs.
