Ode To Billie Joe
Gentry's first 1967 album is a masterpiece, it's a simple as that. An album of hauntingly beautiful songs penned by Bobbie herself bar one track. The album is an uncluttered, straight down the line collection of smoky voiced gems, mostly with the simplest guitar accompaniment, but with a quirky, almost psychedelic twist on each track. Tracks: Mississippi Delta, I Saw an Angel Die, Chickasaw County Child, Sunday Best, Niki Hoeky, Papa, Woncha Let Me Go to Town With You?, Bugs, Hurry, Tuesday Child, Lazy Willie, Ode To Billie Joe.
