By the time THE GREAT CONCH TRAIN ROBBERY was recorded at the tail end of the 1970s, songwriter Shel Silverstein had long since gained renown through the songs he wrote for Johnny Cash, Bobby Bare, and Dr. Hook, and recorded some quirky albums on his own. On his earlier recordings he flirted with folk, rock, and other styles, but here he comes as close as possible to making a straight country record, complete with hot pickers like Sam Bush and John Hartford. The songs themselves, of course, are typically satirical and uproarious, and Silverstein--who never pretended to be a singer-delivers them in his characteristic endearingly wheezy croak--a rarefied pleasure to be sure, but a consistently rewarding one.
