    She was HUGE...A true crossover artist who appealed to both country and MOR groups...Bobbie made the big time with the Ode tune and see penned others to sell a whole heap of wax for the Capitol folks...then puff, she was gone...Her last appearance was in '82 and she put up her guitar right then and there and never returned...Now 80 and supposedly living in the deep South, Gentry had one boy and went on doing a NO show biz path...This smash selling LP was arranged by Jimmie Haskell and it is loaded with great music...and we still have her music and THAT is a very, very good thing...

      I wonder why this is not labeled a misprint as the album tracks don’t match the sleeve tracks

        My Black Friday version is the wrong vinyl - the album contains a record with a different artist... geez...

          Hidden gem, i think.

          Order of songs on Jacket is different than on record. Tracklist here is accurate.
