Combined for the first time on one CD, Raven presents two unique albums by the legendary Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter BOBBIE GENTRY. With superb quality audio, seven rare bonus tracks, color booklet and detailed liner notes. While best remembered for her first and biggest hit, the bittersweet 'Ode to Billie Joe', Gentry continued to prove herself a performer and writer of rare talent, issuing a string of high quality albums until her retirement in the mid 1970s. Her recordings have undergone serious re-evaluation in recent years. Her debut album Ode to Billie Joe (1967) and Touch 'em with Love (1969) are superb examples of her artistry at work. Ode to Billie Joe went to #1 on both the US Billboard Country and Pop charts. Her enticing blend of country-meets-soul-meets-pop is highlighted by exquisite songs such as the legendary title track, the gorgeous 'I Saw an Angel Die', the autobiographical 'Chickasaw County Child' and the tough swamp rock of 'Mississippi Delta'. Touch 'em with Love is her most underrated and eclectic album, featuring her UK #1 hit cover of Bacharach/David's 'I'll Never Fall In Love Again', the southern fried funk of the title track and 'Son of a Preacher Man', the bluegrass-flavoured 'Natural to be Gone' and the lushly orchestrated pop of 'I Wouldn't be Surprised'.
