|Bobby Bare The Moon Was Blue Limited Vinyl LP
Originally released on compact disc in 2005, Bobby Bare's 'The Moon Was Blue' was his first album of new material in over two decades and was produced by his son, indie rock and Bloodshot recording artist Bobby Bare, Jr. as well as Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Calexico). The album stays true to Bobby Bare's country roots with lazy waltzes and lap-steel but also incorporates distorted guitars, spacey atmospheres, strings, horns, and haunting background vocals. The result is a progressive country album that's rooted in 70's retro tradition similar to that of the Loretta Lynn/Jack White collaboration. In Bobby Bare's career he has had 15 TOP 10 SINGLES, 6 TOP 10 ALBUMS and 1 GRAMMY AWARD, not to mention championing the careers of Kris Kristoffersen, Billy Joe Shaver, Shel Silverstein, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, J.J. Cale and Waylon Jennings. Waylon called Bare "the best songhound in the world" and truer words were never spoken. With 'The Moon Was Blue', Bobby Bare continues to push the envelope of country music, as he has throughout his career.
