Monday June 14th Preview - Bobby Charles "Gulf Coast Environmentalist"

This album really shows off Bobby Charles' solid songwriting and warming voice. It was recorded after Bobby went into hiding from the law in Woodstock, NY and was promised by Al Grossman that he'd get the charges dropped if Bobby would sign the recording deal. 'The Band' and others help to lay down the laid back grooves and Bobby croons that comfy cajun voice of his. Later in his career he was tired of how the states along the Gulf of Mexico had been run over by chemical and petrol companies (especially in Louisianna) and started a movement to educate children about pollution - "you have to educate kids about this serious issue early. It’s already too late in their teens when they have hard heads and hard ons."
