45 Years Ago Today.......

Miss Bobbie Gentry

Walked that guitar

And that hair

And that Sass

Into the studio in the basement of the Capitol Records Tower on Vine Street in Hollywood and laid down the best damn country/pop crossover hit ever....
"Ode To Billy Joe".

Thank you Fancy girl.


  1. You know, I really wish that they would remake "Ode to Billy Joe" as a movie today. I for one would like to see Billy Joe get ode on, for one, and not have it ruined by Robbie Benson.
