Raven [Australia]

Combined for the first time on one CD, Raven presents two unique albums by the legendary Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter Bobbie Gentry. While best remembered for her first and biggest hit, the bittersweet Ode to Billie Joe, Gentry continued to prove herself a performer and writer of rare talent, issuing a string of high quality albums until her retirement in the early 1970s. Both released in 1968, the Delta Sweete and Local Gentry are superb examples of Gentry's artistry at work. The first features the bold and brassy Okolona River Bottom Band, the melodious Mornin' Glory and outstanding covers of Louisiana Man, Tobacco Road and Parchman Farm Blues. The follow-up includes three Lennon/McCartney songs while also focusing on Gentry's own enticing blend of country-meets-soul-meets-pop with exquisite songs like Sweete Peony, Casket Vignette and Recollection. Both albums feature superb quality audio taken from the original album masters and include three rare bonus tracks. 2006.
