Editorial Reviews

Built around a concept and songs supplied by maverick songwriter Shel Silverstein, Bobby Bare's Hard Time Hungrys is an astounding and affecting chronicle of economic depression and the people most buffeted by it. Recorded in 1975 the album is more timely than ever with its moving and good humoured tales of the disenfranchised and their plight. From light-hearted odes to the life of poverty (Warm And Free) to earthy tales of the hard scrabble (The Farmer Feeds Us All, Two For A Dollar) the album is profound and friendly. The following year Bare cut The Winner...and Other Losers an engaging set that features many highlights including one of the most bizarre spirituals ever committed to wax, Dropkick Me, Jesus. Remastered from the original RCA Victor mastertapes in 2012. 24 track CD. All original recordings. 20 page full colour booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos.

My husband loves Bobby Bare and this added to his collection of his music.

This has several of my very favorite Bobby Bare tunes on it....most notably "The Winner".
Zeke
"Alimony" is a tongue in cheek song which warns against falling in love with the wrong woman.

There are only a handful of country artists who are at once outlaws but in the same vein have respect for tradition. Johnny Cash is one and Bobby Bare is another. In his long and distinguished career, Bobby Bare tried various permutations and combinations in country music-from traditional country to rockabilly to folk country.
In the seventies, Bobby discovered the music of Shel Silverstein and this resulted in the classic "Lullabys, Legends and Lies" album. By the mid seventies Bobby's music was considered to be part of the outlaw movement and part of a new progressive country sound which unfortunately was short lived. The vinyl albums reproduced on this CD "Hard Time Hungrys and The Winner and Other Losers" are from that mid seventies period. The majority of the songs were again written by Shel Silverstein. Although Shel also wrote for Johnny Cash and Faron Young, his writings for Bobby show him at his artistic best.
The first album "Hard Time Hungrys" is about hard economic times and is quite relevant to today's economy where gas prices are off the wall and needed jobs are being sent overseas. One of the charms of this first album is that the producers went into the field to get commentary from ordinary folks as to their take on economic conditions. Such commentary serves as an introduction to the majority of the songs on this first album. And what great songs they are! The title track tells it like it is while "The Farmer Feeds Us All" is a sarcastic take on how the system is screwing the farmer. "Alimony" is a tongue in cheek song which warns against falling in love with the wrong woman. The victim is paying for his mistake big time. He thought he "...was getting steak but it was baloney".

Heard a bunch of Bobby Bare I wasn't familiar with. Some great songs of commiserating with the working people, and some engaging humor.

Grew up listening to my dad and brother playing Bobby Bare. I was never a country music fan, but Bobby Bare's humorous, droll lyrics made me a fan of HIS country music. "Hard Time Hungrys" and "Truck Driver" are personal favorites. Was a tad disappointed not to see "Tequila Sheila" and "Qaaludes Again" in this compilation, though. Gave a copy to my brother for Christmas, he couldn't have been more thrilled! My 80-year-old dad was eyeing it yearningly, so he's getting a copy for his birthday.

The Hard Time Hungry's album was a concept album that originally came out in 1975. It has street interviews with people to kind of introduce the songs. It sounds kind of depressing. But it shows the human spirit. My favorite songs are Alimony, Back Home In Huntsville Again and he does a very good version of Charley Pride's Able Bodied Man. I have to say one thing about The Winner Album. To me there is nothing in recorded music as exciting as when you get your last record by an artist on cd. To fill out your cd collection. For me that was The Winner. It has one of my favorite Bobby Bare songs. Put A Little Lovin' On Me on it. That is about as rocking of a song as I have ever heard Bobby Bare do. My next favorite song is Lost In Austin. It has Dropkick Me Jesus which I could do without but the rest of the record is good.
