R.I.P., Bobby Charles!

I was very sorry to hear by way of an insightful obituary @AllMusic.com that Bobby Charles has passed away.

If you are not familiar with his great songwriting and singing, check out the compilation "Last Train to Memphis" which is offered by the MP3 dealer of my choice (emusic). And: Some of his songs are available on his Last.FM artist page.

My favorite country guitarist Albert Lee has covered some of Bobby's songs. Two of Albert's best versions are featured on the Albert Lee And Hogan's Heroes album "In Between the Cracks".

You can listen to the songs (and buy them) on the album's emusic page.

Here is a beautiful Bobby Charles song which was covered by Clarence "Frogman" Henry (among others):
