Bobbie Gentry had a huge hit in 1967 with "Ode to Billie Joe," the haunting single that introduced her strong, sultry voice and flair for combining Southern Gothic drama with details so vivid that it feels like listeners are living her stories with her. She expanded on the world she built with that song on 1968's full-length The Delta Sweete, but unlike "Ode to Billie Joe," it was not a huge hit; its pioneering lk-pop didn't even crack the top 100 of Billboard's Top LPs chart

The Delta Sweete Revisited is the first Mercury Rev album since 1993 not to center around Donahue’s endearingly odd voice. That’s the correct decision for Gentry’s material, given both its feminist spirit and the caliber of talent on display here. The album’s guestlist includes relative newcomers like Phoebe Bridgers, whose understated voice struggles to be heard amid one of Mercury Rev’s more syrupy arrangements, and veterans like Lucinda Williams, whose decision to cover Ode To Billie Joe is somewhat bewildering, given both its already-high profile and the fact that it did not appear on The Delta Sweete. Norah Jones helps transform the swampy Okolona River Bottom Band into a majestic orchestral overture, but the swagger and nimble groove of Gentry’s original is sorely missed.

Working with a full album originally recorded by Bobbie Gentry is another matter entirely. While they wisely left the wispy voice of frontman Jonathan Donahue behind and instead called upon an array of female singers that span multiple generations and styles, the sound that Gentry cultivated - a tight, lustrous braid that wound together the various strains of Southern music - was mostly eschewed and replaced with the band’s usual plush dream pop. The Good: Some songs survived the transition better than others.

Bobbie Gentry's the Delta Sweete Revisited. Summary: Phoebe Bridgers, Vashti Bunyan, Rachel Goswell, Norah Jones, Marissa Nadler, Beth Orton, Margo Price, Laetitia Sadier, Hope Sandoval, Kaela Sinclair, Susanne Sundfør, Carice van Houten, and Lucinda Williams provide vocals to the indie rock band's reimagining of Bobbie Gentry’s 1968 album.

The Delta Sweete is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Bobbie Gentry.

Mercury Rev’s ‘Delta Sweete’ manages to breathe new life into Gentry’s album while also producing material as good as anything the band have done this century. 8/10 - Loud & Quiet. It’s a record that stands as a celebration of the trailblazing spirit of figures like Gentry and Bunyan, women who made early inroads into the music industry on their own terms, and it’s a record that comes across as firmly led by their successors. 8/10 - God Is In The TV. Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete Revisited is a sensitive re-rendering which approaches each song on a case-by-case basi. voke’s Mercury Rev’s own classic album Deserter’s Songs. Beautiful tribute album gives contemporary sound to their own country roots with help from a great cast of collaborators.

So if nothing else, The Delta Sweete Revisited offers an unexpected change of direction. Out go Jonathan Donahue’s distinctive vocals, to be replaced by 13 female singers – including such big names as Norah Jones, Beth Orton and Lucinda Williams – each of whom tackle a song from Bobbie Gentry’s 1968 cult country-blues classic

TITLE added to MP3 cart. Bobbie Gentry's The Delta Sweete Revisited. Mercury Rev. February 8, 2019. Exclusive Prime pricing.

Longtime fans Mercury Rev stay true to that experimentation, recruiting a cast of guest vocalists including Lucinda Williams, Hope Sandoval, and Phoebe Bridgers to help bring new ideas and atmospheres to the songs. Opener Okolona River Bottom Band sets the tone, transformed from swamp-side R&B into orchestral pop simmering with strings, tension, and Norah Jones’ yearning voice. Here, they focus on a lost gem of country-rock: The 1968 follow-up to her chart-topping US debut, Ode to Billie Joe, Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete was a relative misfire in commercial terms. Thirteen years and a handful of albums later, the singer-songwriter vanished into a reclusive existence, adding new mystique to the music she left behind.

Comments to album Mercury Rev - Bobbie Gentry's The Delta Sweete Revisited
White_Nigga
beautiful Euro pressing. quiet, flat and sounds excellent. .
Dugor
Personally, I call this The Best Mercury Rev Album In Years. Will it make you forget the original? Absolutely not, nor should you want it to. But it's expertly played and the different vocalists work, despite sounding like a gimmick on paper. It's lush and beautiful. If you're a fan of Rev or any of the vocalists featured, check it out!
MrDog
I offer a more apt title for this release: "The Gentrification of Bobbie Gentry's 'The Delta Sweete': Music From Season 4 of True Detective". Because that's what this release sounds like. A shame, really...
Golkree
My copy had non-fill noise on side one of the two copies I've tried. Excellent collection of songs. Not a great pressing. Anyone with a bad copy should return it at least once. Only way they'll learn.
Zepavitta
My copy was pretty quiet. Run in groove did "jump" into track 1 on side A though, no matter how gently I lowered the tone arm. Great album.
Rainbearer
Intro grooves on the first song are really noisy and had me super worried. quiets down after that but it's not silent, bits of noise pop up here and there. and with voices like Hope Sandoval's, you want this to be a quiet record. Cleaned with an Audio Desk System Pro, so it's clean....
