Razzy Bailey

When you seem as good-natured as Razzy does, you can get away with singing songs titled I Forgot How Bad My Good Woman Could Be, much as Charley Pride did with his recent hit You're So Good When You're Bad. Bailey also can sing about being a destitute Alabama lad on Poor Boy without leaning too heavily on his corn pone, since he was in fact once a destitute Alabama lad. This isn't the most innovative album to hit country music lately—though Bailey's Singin' Other People's Songs has a nice ironic ring to it—but it's a pleasant 10 tracks of unassuming enjoyment.
