    This two-for-one CD from the Australian reissue label Raven Records gathers Bobbie Gentry's first and fifth albums for Capitol Records, 1967's ODE TO BILLIE JOE and 1969's TOUCH 'EM WITH LOVE. Though terminally overshadowed by its iconic title track, ODE TO BILLIE JOE remains a startling debut throughout. Almost entirely self-penned (with the exception of a fine take on the folk standard "Niki Hoeky"), the folk-influenced hard country of these 10 songs features a novelistic lyrical sense that owes much to Gentry's fellow Mississippian, Eudora Welty. TOUCH 'EM WITH LOVE branches away from Gentry's original sparse country sound into lavishly arranged pop with soul and R&B influences, including impressive covers of "You've Made Me So Very Happy," "Son of a Preacher Man," and a gender-reversed take on Jimmy Webb's "Where's the Playground, Susie?"
