BOBBY BARE (358)

As is / Ain't Got Nothin' to Lose (2-for-1) RVCD-358

Raven presents for the first time on CD two original, outstanding albums by BOBBY BAREAs Is (1981) and Ain’t Got Nothin’ to Lose (1982). These are the fifth and sixth albums Bare recorded for Columbia, following such career defining releases as Down & Dirty and Drunk & Crazy which consolidated his rambunctious yet poetic style. Bare is one of the greats of “Outlaw” country, having scored million-selling hits in the 1960s with the likes of ‘Detroit City’ and ‘500 Miles Away from Home’. By the mid-1970s he was attracting rock audiences as well as country, following a number of freewheeling and rollicking collaborations with songwriter Shel Silverstein. For the critically acclaimed As Is, Bare recorded songs by a diverse selection of songwriters including J.J. Cale (‘Call Me the Breeze’), Townes Van Zandt (‘White Freight Liner Blues’) and Guy Clark (the hit single ‘New Cut Road’).

As well as being another strong seller, Ain’t Got Nothin’ to Lose was likewise held in high regard. Contributions this time came from Red Lane (the hit single ‘If You Ain’t Got Nothin’ You Ain’t Got Nothin’ to Lose’), Jack Clement (‘They Covered up the Old Swimmin’ Hole’) and his old mucker Shel Silverstein (‘Cold Day in Hell’). With superb audio quality, detailed notes and bonus tracks this entertaining 2-for-1 CD is a must for fans of classic country.
