Bobby's sister Lois Russell | Reviewer: John D, Higgins | 6/8/13
Back in 1960-1961 I was in the Air Force stationed at Eielson AFB outside of Fairbanks Alaska. My wife and I were neighbors and good friends of Bobby's sister Lois and her husband Don. Lois and Don had twin girls. Lost contact with them when reassigned to the states.
Went to a Bobby Bare concert in the early 90's in Mount Vernon Ohio and met Bobby and sadly found out that my military co-worker Don had died and that Lois was living in San Antonio.
So this is really not about Bobby but instead about his sister Lois. Would like to be able to get in touch with her again (some 50 years later).

What a Great entertainer | Reviewer: Mckay Moore | 4/20/12
I was lucky enough to see Bobby Bare at a school house in Lacy, WA. a long time ago, and I will never forget it, there was only about 100 people there, so it was really nice and cordial.
guitar playing | Reviewer: Janice Dayton | 8/21/10
My husband Charles Dayton told me a story about a boy that waited on his steps waiting for him to come from work, so he could learn about playing the guitar. That boy name was Bobby Bare. This was in Vinton County Ohio in the late forties or early fifties. Charles was married to June Dayton at that time. Iam Charles second wife. Charles passed a way 2005 I wonder if you are the same Bobby Bare.
singin in the kitchen & the cochise co. fair 1976 | Reviewer: dw thomas | 11/3/09
I was 10 years old then and remember this song being sang, most notably everytime he had to sing "singin in the kitchen" he would send the mike down to the kids to sing it for him.
I still remember having to sing the verse with a cold and did the amps help intensify my hoarse voice. I have a memory of a concert not even my kids have and still cherish it. Best wishes and health to you and yours. D.W.T.
Detroit City, 1963 . . . | Reviewer: Dave Hulsey | 10/27/09
Well I guess I have been a fan of Bobby Bare for almost 50 years. I was 15 years old in 1963 we lived on a military base (my father was in the Air Force). There was a juke box in the base snack bar and Detroit City had to be the most popular song. You could see it in the faces of those young GI's -- everyone related to that idea of "I want to go home".
What a great singer and song writer! If a man cannot relate to Bobby Bare, he may not be a real American (or he may not be a real man).
When I was in Nashville a few years ago, I walked out of Tootsie's Orchid Lounge and went across the street to the Ernest Tubb Record Store. I had one singer on my mind--Bobby Bare. I purchased a Bobby Bare greatest hits CD and I sure got my money's worth.
Now I try to learn the history and the collaboration of every great Bare song. The more I know, the better I like him.
Sure would like to see him on stage.

Hi..My daddy used to be friends with Bobby Bare many years ago, around in the late 1950's. I do believe they would play music together and do some partying...My dad's name is Thelmer Wolford...We lived around Wellston, Ohio. My daddy has many good things to say about Bobby. God bless you.
Bobby's early or first album | Reviewer: George Lester | 4/18/09
I was a DJ for a rock and roll station in San Antonio. I think it must have been about 1965. We received Bobby's album and even though it didn't really fit our format we were so impressed by his talent we played it on our station. I personally was crazy about his singing and the songs and when I heard he was to be appearing soon in San Antonio I managed to get a backstage pass hoping to meet this great new country sensation. I found his dressing room and popped in to talk to him. I raved on and on about how much I enjoyed his new album and how I played it even though we weren't a country station. Bobby sat there politely listening to the praise I was piling on him without comment. Just about then one of his friends walked by the dressing room door. Bobby called out to him to wait up and then he got up and walked away chatting with him as if I had never even been in the room. At the time I thought he must be the rudest person I had ever met. Later, after talking to others who knew him, I learned that was just one his peculiarities and he meant no harm. I would really appreciate information on what album that was so I could get the CD. The only thing I can remember was a song about how he would lie awake at night and listen to some neighbor girls singing next door in Newport, Arkansas. I would cherish that album if I could buy it
Old Friend | Reviewer: Leon Turner | 1/26/09
Bobby and I were friends in tbe early 60's he produced a recording on me called "Leavin' Town" in 1962 Bobby wrote the song and Waylon Jennings covered the song in 1966, Bobby is a great artist and song writer and has always been willing to help someone out, any way he could.
Song I Wrote For Bare | Reviewer: Lathan Hudson | 7/27/08
I had written this song for Bobby Bare titled LEAVING LOVE ALL OVER THE PLACE but the last verse deals (humorously) with death and my wanting to play it for Bare coincided with his daughter's loss of life.
I took it to Don Gant at TREE Publishers and Don played it for Billy Sherrill who recorded it on GEORGE JONES. It was the "B" Side of a Bob McDill song titled I'LL JUST TAKE IT OUT IN LOVE which was on the BARTENDER BLUES Album. I always regret that I didn't get to pitch the song for Bobby Bare because it was 'taylor-made' for Bobby. I am a Bobby Bare fan and always will be...Lathan Hudson
The Streets Of Baltimore | Reviewer: Bobby Williams | 1/21/08
This is probably without a doubt his best work.I find it hard to believe it isn't available on CD. Although I've made copies from the L.P., it just isn't the same as a true digital copy without all the hiss etc.The L.P. tell a story of sorts
Bare's Picks | Reviewer: Bill Parker | 11/2/07
I have the Bobby Bare CD "The Columbia Years--Bare's Picks" and play it over and over. It never seems to get old. The varied selections, ranging from "New Cut Road" to "Numbers" are as fresh today as they were when they first came out. In between are some classic songs that bring back memories of my days as a young picker and a dreamer. I particularly like the song that begins with, "Me and Jimmy Rogers..." It's the quintessential day dreamer's song that immediately transports us back to our adolescent years, back to times when we were shooting imaginary hoops in imaginary games while imaginary crowds roared their approval. Bare's voice and presentation of the material create the perfect mood for these stories. What a great CD and what a great artist.
