BOB, I know that feeling, and this one made me cry!! One of the finest songs on the album has to be "Somewhere Tonight" - a song about men who spwend hours and days worrying about whether their girl's all right.
I can't pretend to have been there, my child is a lovely little boy. Simply a superb song! As a lyric writer, Young has few peers. The simple arrangement allows Young to show his vocal skills. Way back when I was a young reporter, there was a Hundred Year Flood - Poison (CD band called the East Side Torpedoes.
They were brilliant and this song reminds me of them at their very best. Wonder where they are now. For the lyrics are about the "Green County Stomp" a kind of dance they do in the south of Mississippi. The dance is a bug dance in Tennessee, a clog dance in Carolina, and the song is perfect for doing just that!! Young shows he can turn an old style Western swing song too. That annoying little gizmo that pops up when you play an album and tries to name the tracks automatically insists that the opening track on the album is called "Ship Of Tools".
This is a bluesy feel with that organ swirling around behind Bob's big bold vocals. When Young saw her struggling to cope with rowdy customers just to make a few dollars, he went all gooey inside and wrote a fine song to tell the tale. Throughout the album there's a sense of something special to come.
Musically, "Stand Up" - the closing song - is far from the best track on the album, but it's the one song here that Young uses to say where he stands on Album) matters". For "such matters" read religion, and it comes as no surprise at all to find out his views!
Footnote: I was delighted to discover that the guy pumping bass across the album is one Jeff "Stick" Davis. He was also part of the Amazing Rhythm Aces. And that's a band I'd totally forgotten about, that I recall loving and have decided I must hunt out again.
Brian Ahern. Big Bob Young aint no new hat kid bidding for fame and fortune from a pop orientated modern country music scene that is only kind to those who can sell records and downloads super fast In fact Bob is in this 50s and has spent most of his adult life serving his country.
He has served in Iraq and won a Bronze Star for bravery in combat before settling down in small town Tullahoma Tennessee. A time served vet is always held in high esteem in America and Big Bob certainly served his country well for over 23 years.
Big Bob is one of 8 children to a St Louis family who grew up singing gospel harmonies and playing guitar. He also learned to play bass and drums. He started song writing in his teens. He caught the entertaining bug while in the air force and entering a talent comp in Little Rock Arkansas.
In the mid eighties he was a bandleader for a country artist in Arkansas. Along the way Bob was a high school dropout at He has been married and divorced twice and lost a wife to cancer. He has been an airman, soldier, mechanic, collegian, jazzman, country bandleader, farrier, telegram singer, and clown. Big Bobs album backing Hundred Year Flood - Poison (CD are hot too. Drums Rick Lonow Poco.
Colin Linden Bruce Cockburn. Produced by Davis Moody and Webb. Also kick in with me the grandfather of a female bar worker in the gay village. A gentle reflection. A smashing country album taken from blue collar lived in life and sung with conviction and passion in proof that real country music is still with us if we look, learn and listen from the heart and not the chart.
Fans of 90s country shuffles should give this barely two minute song a spin. While I don't think anyone could claim that Big Bob Young was gifted with the best voice, he does use it well on ballads like "Somewhere Tonight," where his sharp songwriting finds the fifty-something describing bad choices young children make while the parents simultaneously pray for those children to make it through their choices.
The title track is a horn-filled, partyin' ode to those women who work very hard in the bars and honky tonks so the rest of us can enjoy our time away from our lives. In fact, "Hard Way To Make A Dollar" is a fine album that showcases the kind of great talent that comes in all shapes, sizes and ages in our great country. A Man Aound the House records. The grooves run deep, the stories and emotions ring true, and the words shine like the modest gems they are.
Robert L, Album). Young was born inand while he may have taken a circuitous route to reach this point in life, his songs are richer for their travels. A married father and high school dropout at 17, Big Bob has been an airman, soldier, mechanic, collegian, jazzman, country bandleader, farrier, telegram singer and clown.
Along the way, he has musically chronicled heartache and jubilation, innocence lost and insight gained, pleasures of the flesh and matters of the soul. Now, these songs can finally be heard. Music has surrounded Young since his birth into a musical family in St. Louis — Mom and her eight siblings harmonized on gospel standards; Dad taught him guitar — and young Bob absorbed these influences and many more.
He started writing songs as a teen, and caught the performing "bug" while serving in the Air Force. He moved to Tullahoma, Tennessee inwhere he now lives. Create a free account.
