Reseña de álbum

Hooking up with the Band, specifically Rick Danko and their producer John Simon, was one of the smartest moves Bobby Charles ever made. His subsequent eponymous album on Bearsville not only gave him a bigger audience, but led to the perfect production for his sly, subtle blend of New Orleans R&B, rock & roll, and country. Partially, that's because the production is fuller, richer than his sides for Chess, Jewel, and Paula, boasting not just some grit, but a sweetness on ballads like "I Must Be in a Good Place Now," a tune every bit as good as those from the singer/songwriters who dominated the charts in 1972. This gives the album an earthier quality than anything else he recorded; it also makes the album feel like a perfect companion piece to other roots rock albums from the time like, of course, the Band. Still, there's a special charm to this record, largely because while it sounds contemporary, it retains Charles' mellow vibe and his sharp songwriting. The songs come on slow — "Street People," "He's Got All the Whiskey," and "Small Town Talk" all slowly unwind — but the slow build is friendly, welcoming you into the song. This isn't lazy music, but it takes its time and it's better for it; it's perfect music for a hot summer afternoon. It's a true hidden gem of blue-eyed soul, Southern R&B, and early '70s roots rock (and early-'70s singer/songwriterism, for that matter). [JVC Victor issued a bonus track edition in 2007.]

Pleasant Surprise

I downloaded this CD based on a couple reviews and a hunch. I cant believe he is not more popular. Without a doubt this is a gem of a CD; very soulful with a touch of New Orleans. It's Ray Charles meets the Band. ;)

Incorrect Review

Fantastic album by an inspired songwriter. I would like to correct the I Tunes reviewer though in reference to The Band, Robbie Robertson never sang for The Band, his name should be replaced by that of Levon Helm whose soulful voice gave so many Band songs their transcendent, yet uniquely American quality.

the best-kept secret in rock and roll history

"Who's going to work and make the economy grow if we all hang out in the street? I don't know and I don't care, just as long as it ain't me." Bobby Charles, 1972, is the sound of drop-out America, a gorgeously natty sweater of a record, totally elegant, stone free, beautiful, sad, unbelievably natural, organic, cracked, torn, frayed, rained-on, dried out, the essence of the early 70s, more like the Band than any Band album and basically just the best damned record you could hope to find on a lark. Rick Danko spirits the record to zen perfection with his bass riffs and hobbled harmonies. Perfect.

More successful as a songwriter than a singer, Bobby Charles was nonetheless an important contributor to Louisiana music in both respects. He authored several hits for key artists in the early days of rock & roll (including Bill Haley and Fats Domino), and although he recorded mostly in obscurity, he emerged as one of the founding fathers of swamp pop. Robert Charles Guidry was born February 21, 1938, in the Cajun-country town of Abbeville, LA, and grew up listening to traditional Cajun music....
