52/52: Ode to Billie Joe, by Bobbie Gentry, by Tara Murtha

Categorized in: ,

A terrific write-around, in which Murtha covers the career and legacy of Gentry, a singer/songwriter/performer who left public life 40 years ago and hasn’t been seen since. A feminist story about creative vision and business acumen. My favorite tidbit: Gentry was an early co-owner of the Phoenix Suns NBA team.
