It’s coming! The Bobbie Gentry Box set ‘The Girl From Chickasaw County’

Happy Birthday Bobbie! We are pleased to announce the forthcoming 8-cd boxset The Girl From Chickasaw County. This is the first major retrospective of this groundbreaking artist, and includes all seven of Bobbie’s studio albums sensitively re-mastered from the original tapes, supplemented by over 75 previously unreleased recordings including her ‘lost’ jazz album, outtakes, demos, rarities and an eighth disc of live performances taken from her celebrated series for the BBC. The release has specially commissioned cover art by David Downton and includes an 84-page book with a comprehensive essay by the boxset compiler Andrew Batt, rare and unseen photos, eight postcards and a facsimile of her original handwritten lyrics for ‘Ode To Billie Joe’. The boxset will be released by UMC on 21/09/2018. You can pre-order the set here, and for more information on the tracks and contents, visit our album page.
