"Built around a concept and songs supplied by maverick songwriter 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 timelier than ever with its moving and good humored tales of the disenfranchised and their plight. From light-hearted odes to the life of poverty ('Warm And Free') 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.' Remastered from the original RCA Victor mastertapes in 2012. 24 track CD. All original recordings. Twenty page full colour booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos."
