Thread: Bobbie Gentry "Ode To Billy Joe"

    Back in late 2005 my friend Jeanne & I saw Jill Sobule open for Cindy Lauper at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. Really good show. Cindy played a tenor guitar if I remember right. Jill played guitar during a good portion of Cindy's set too.

    Found this Mississippi Delta song from 1967 by Bobbie Gentry. https://youtu.be/UFxoR4EVSXQ

    Wiki says she was active from 1964-1981.

    "After a 1978 single for Warner Bros. Records, "Steal Away", failed to chart, Gentry decided to retire from show business. Her last public appearances as a performer were on Christmas Night 1978 as a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and on 10 May 1981 on All-Star Salute to Mother's Day. After that, she settled in Los Angeles and remained out of the public eye."

    I love it when stars just go away gracefully and peacefully. Event better, when they do not make a comeback. They had enough, time to move on...
