不少合辑里都有的歌《I'll Never Fall in Love Again》，也被众多歌手翻唱，包括大名鼎鼎的卡彭特(The Carpenters)、狄昂 华薇克(Dionne Warwick)等，民谣天后Bobbie Gentry的版本是我的最爱。献给喜欢老歌的驴友~~
Bobbie Gentry原名Roberta Lee Streeter，1944年7月27日在美国密西西比州的一个小城镇出生。她看了一部1952年的电影Ruby Gentry之后，就改Bobbie Gentry作为自己的艺名。1967年，Bobbie Gentry发表她的首张专辑Ode to Billie Joe，专辑中的同名歌曲成为排行榜的冠军，并为Bobbie Gentry带来第10届格莱美的最佳流行女歌手奖和最佳新人奖。
Touch 'Em With Love is Bobbie Gentry's finest studio effort, a fascinatingly eclectic and genuinely affecting record that broadened her musical horizons far beyond the limitations of the Nashville sound. Its unexpectedly gritty, soulful production makes it something of a spiritual twin to Dusty Springfield's Dusty in Memphis, also released in 1969 (both even feature renditions of "Son of a Preacher Man"): Gentry's husky, sensual delivery proves as ideally suited for the Southern-fried funk of the opening title track as it does for the bluegrass-flavored "Natural to Be Gone," deftly moving from genre to genre to encompass everything from faux-gospel ("Glory Hallelujah, How They'll Sing") to lushly orchestrated pop ("I Wouldn't Be Surprised," the disc's centerpiece). Even more eye-opening is that Gentry's originals stand tall alongside material from composers including Burt Bacharach ("I'll Never Fall in Love Again," which earned her a chart-topping single in the U.K.) and Jimmy Webb ("Where's the Playground, Johnny") -- her folky "Seasons Come, Seasons Go," an acute tale of lost love, offers Touch 'Em With Love's most profoundly beautiful moment. A truly great and tragically under-recognized album.
