Omni finally releases two long out-of-print Bobby Bare albums. 'Hard Time Hungrys' was Bare's response to the mid 1970s oil crisis and economic depression. He and Shel Silverstein (who wrote most of the songs) interviewed poor people across the country and you can hear them talking between the songs that tell their story. It is a rare case that a mainstream Country music artist comments so much on current social and political affairs (something Bare was never afraid of). Most of all, the messages contained here still hold true as the world economy is even more messed up than ever. The other album 'The Winner...' has never been issued on CD and contains another big share of Silverstein songs as well as songs from other left-field writers, many of the tragically humorous kind..

From the label:
Built around a concept and songs supplied by maverick songwriter/cartoonist/libertine Shel Silverstein, Bobby Bare’s “Hard Time Hungrys” is an astounding and affecting chronicle of economic depression and the people most buffeted by it. Recorded in 1975 the album is more timely than ever with its moving and good humoured tales of the disenfranchised and their plight. From light-hearted odes to the life of poverty (Warm And Free, The Unemployment Line) to earthy tales of the hard scrabble (The Farmer Feeds Us All, Two For A Dollar) the album is profound and friendly.

The following year Bare cut “The Winner…And Other Losers” an engaging set that features many highlights including one of the most bizarre spirituals ever committed to wax, “Dropkick Me, Jesus”.
