This comeback attempt from Bobby Bare
featured spaced-out arrangements that hewed closer to the idiosyncratic music of his son
, Bobby Bare Jr., than his own back catalog. No wonder: Bare Jr. produced the album along with Mike Nevers, of the alt-country group Lambchop. The Moon Was Blue
didn't make a dent on the country music charts. But it's worth checking out for its superb version of Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin'" and the existential heartbreaker "I Am an Island."
