Richard J. Dobson is known as a songwriter, covered by the likes of Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark, and David Allan Coe, a pretty good indication of the kind of flinty, literary Texas country he makes. He cut Mankind in 1994, releasing it on a small American label, so the 2015 Bear Family set Mankind Plus, which has two bonus tracks, represents a revival of a record that functions something like a songbook and summary. Many, but not all, of his key songs are here -- including "Baby Ride Easy," popularized in a duet by Dave Edmunds and Carlene Carter about 12 years earlier -- and they're given simple but not spare arrangements that keep the focus on Dobson's expert craft and wry, dry delivery.
