Bobby Bare is, in some ways, a deceptive artist. His smooth, beguiling baritone and accomplished Countrypolitan productions sometimes tend to overshadow the fact that he is an artist of immense substance. Two of his most impressive country-concept albums are presented here, lovingly restored and remastered from the original RCA Victor master tapes, with a number of rare and poignant extra tracks. "A Bird Named Yesterday" was originally issued in 1967 and is, quite simply, stunning. Through humour, stark portraiture and heartfelt ballads Bobby Bare places himself in direct opposition to the ill winds of the modern world. "Somebody Bought My Old Hometown" is probably the closest Nashville has ever come to an anti-corporate diatribe and "They Covered Up the Old Swimming Hole" is a rant against the urban sprawl disguised as charming hick nostalgia. Smooth as silk, wise and warm, but with the dark heart of a Hillbilly Anarchist Provocateur, "A Bird Named Yesterday" is a revelation! "Talk Me Some Sense" is a brooding, nihilistic work, announced by a lonesome harmonica wail and over-brimming with lost souls and desperation. Recorded in 1965 (and released in 1966), it is as troubled (and confused) as the times it was borne from. "Passin' Through", "You Can't Stop the Wild Wind from Blowing" and "Heaven Help my Soul" all cast Bare as a loner, buffeted from town to town, in search of the things he can never find. Most tracks make their first appearance on CD including a number of very rare "45" only cuts! A mighty and compelling collection. First time on CD! Deluxe collectors 16 page full colour package featuring original LP artwork and exclusive liner notes. All tracks are remastered 2006 from the original master tapes! Compiled and curated by noted musician (Snog, Soma, Black Lung) and film composer David Thrussell.
