There you have early July's BOTB. Please give them a listen, as vote your preference among these pretenders to Bobby Bare's starry crown, with comments on the strengths and weaknesses:
Jesse and the James Boys _____
George Possley ______
Blackwood Creek ______

And please go to other BOTB sites to enjoy and participate in great competitions"
