A week in radio: Whatever Happened to Bobbie Gentry?
#1 May 27, 2012
I really enjoyed the bbc documentary but it was riddled with errors. How could the bbc ,of all people' not know her third album, 'Local Gentry' was recorded at Abby Road studios in London, not Nashville as they sited. With record sales of 'Ode to Billie Joe' at the historic 50 million mark on over 100 covers and 'Fancy' at 20 million; she is long overdue for induction in The Nashville Songwriters Hall Of Fame. Master jazz pianist, Bill Evans, recorded her lush composition, Mornin' Glory on his important 'Live In Toyo' album and played the tune in hundreds of concerts. Her southern swamp rocker 'Mississippi Delta' helped define the sub genere of Southern Rock.
