7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: The Delta Sweete by Bobbie Gentry
This is the second airing of this week’s AOW, Bobbie Gentry’s ambitious concept album about life growing up in Chickasaw County, Mississippi. In truth, Bobbie Gentry didn’t want to sing. She wanted to write songs for other people and remain in the background. Her songwriting prowess is fully on show here, as is her sultry, bluesy voice.
We’ve got Chile, the Netherlands, the UK, Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Russian Federation, Australia, Brazil, Mexico, and many points beyond already tuned in this morning. Why not join them?
