It’s Lonesome In This Town
Posted in Honey on 11.18.05

Apparently I’m a journalist now, so tell me all your secrets. I have a busy weekend ahead, but I’m going to try to get at least one of the lists up for Monday – but everything should be up (including videos) after Thanksgiving. Also some other stuff that I would mention but i have a terrible track record when it comes to doing that.

Bobby Bare is one of those country music originators that are hard to classify and even harder to pin down. This song Houston is off his Streets of Baltimore album recorded for RCA in 1966 while Bare was still enjoying success as a blue-collar country singer. He would later expand his styles into the world of folk-country and then into whatever you would call his Shel Silverstein collaboration albums (that are really amazing), but these first couple of albums after he moved from the pop world to outlaw country are still my favorites. It’s a shame that you can’t buy any of his albums from this period, someone really needs to get on remastering/reisussing these albums over here.

So, why are you apparently a journalist???

I should have added Eddy Taylor’s Bad Boy to my list of favorites, BTW. Guess I’m a ‘lectrified Chicago girl to the end.

Thank you very much for the “whole bunch of mp3 files” – it’s all very good stuff to me, when you have burned it and have the time to listen to it,- really listen to recordings.
The music is alive. And the humour.
Shake hands and hi!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
Do you know any ways to help reduce content from
being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your
favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think
about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also
defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could
take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered on your post.
They are very convincing and can certainly work.
Still, the posts are very quick for starters. Could you please lengthen them a little from next time?
Thank you for the post.
