This review is from: The Very Best Of Bobbie Gentry (Audio CD)
I've been collecting my favorite songs from the seventies and eighties which are primarily country or crossover. I finally got to "Ode to Billie Joe" and purchased this album.
This album has made me a huge Bobbie Gentry fan. Her talent is just amazing. Her delivery is gorgeous.
Her popularity in the late sixties/early seventies was big enough that she headlined in Las Vegas for quite a period of time. She had big solo success as well as with Glen Campbell. The one tune I don't care for on this collection is "Misssissippi Delta" Everything else is brilliant. "Something in the Way He Moves" has become an all time favorite.
If you like the Burt Bacharach style of music, try this, you won't be sorry
