5.0 out of 5 stars Big Bad John & much more... January 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
My Daddy used to cry each time I'd play "Sleeping Beauty" on this old LP that I had. I'd always threaten to have it played at my wedding reception, but he said he wouldn't be able to endure it. For anyone that loves the old "story" type songs, there is NONE better than Jimmy Dean. He paints such a vivid picture in "Big Bad John", that you can almost taste the soot and smoke from the bottom of the coal mine. This music brought back WONDERFUL memories for me from my childhood...YOU"LL LOVE IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive hits collection of Jimmy Dean August 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This reissue of a greatest hits package originally released in 1966 is an excellent CD featuring his biggest hits for Columbia on one CD, 12 songs in all. The 12th track on the CD, the top 10 hit "Dear Ivan", wasn't on the vinyl version of this compilation, but is on this 1998 reissue as a bonus track. The only top 40 hit on Columbia that has been omitted is his cover of Hank Williams's "Mind Your Own Business." A nice addition to this compilation is the original B side of "Big Bad John", which is the first track on the album, entitled "I Won't Go Huntin' With You Jake (But I'll Go Chasin' Wimmin)" which is the 11th track on the album. There are also great liner notes, great remastering and great sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Wide at the Shoulder and Narrow at the Hip" July 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Everybody knew you didn't give no lip to Big John."
My parents had this LP when I was a little kid and I swear I wore the thing out!
I used to listen to the whole thing over and over again. The song "Big Bad John" is the grand- daddy of all story songs. No one tells a story like Jimmy Dean. (Makes a good sausage too!:-)
I also loved the song, "PT 109". Of course as a little guy I had no understanding of who JFK was but this story song helped.
If you like good old fashioned story songs this album is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Columbia gets upstaged by Bear Family Records July 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is an anemic collection of Jimmy Dean's Hits. The copy I purchased online is made by Bear Family Records which cost [quite a bit] for the CD, however, it contains a total of 26 songs like "Gotta Travel On", Please Pass The Biscuits, Walk on Boy, Make The Water Wheel Rol, Dear Ivan, Sixteen Tons, and others. Now, here's the real kicker -- The label of the CD is made to look like a (circa 1950s) 45-RPM single with the dark red label with gold lettering and even has the record grooves including the runout groove used to trip the changer mechanism. Where the "Columbia name would be is the name "BEAR FAMILY". Bear Family Records also did a Guy Mitchell CD and duplicated the late 50s Columbia label look with the red & black squares. Bear Family Records cost a little more but they really do a pro job with no skimping. This CD is a BIG disappointment, they could have done better. In fact they SHOULD HAVE done better.

4.0 out of 5 stars From a Father January 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Tom T. Hall may be the Story Teller, but Jimmy Dean has to be a close second. In fact, while Hall's story's most often make you laugh, Dean is the one who really gets to the "heart" of the matter. As the father of two little girls, "TO a Sleeping Beauty" has a very specail place in my heart and puts a lump in my throat. THe other songs are great too, but for a father of little girls, nothing hits me like that song.

4.0 out of 5 stars This One Was Adequate Way Back When September 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
When they first released this CD version of the 1966 vinyl LP (Columbia CS-9285 it served an immediate purpose for those switching to the new format and who wanted mp.3 versions of some of their favourite LPs. However, even though it would be re-released in 1998 with one added "bonus" track - Dear Ivan) both have long since been surpassed by other releases, including one from Sony titled The Best Of Jimmy Dean, most with 18 tracks and up and infinitely more in the way of liner notes (this contains only the original LP sleeve notes). In the following summary of his Columbia singles career I precede those included in this volume with an asterisk (*).

After scoring one C&W hit back in March 1953 with Bumming Around (# 5 and billed to Jimmie Dean on 4 Star 1613 b/w Picking Sweethearts), he next turned up on the charts with Columbia in 1957, taking Deep Blue Sea to # 67 Billboard Pop Top 100 in November b/w Love Me So I'll Know on Columbia 40995. In retrospect, that would have been a better inclusion in the original LP than, say, Sam Hill (a non-hit on Columbia 43159 in September 1964) or The Farmer And The Lord which first appeared on the vinyl LP in 1966). Another Columbia hit that year was the Christmas entry, Little Sandy Sleighfoot, which made it to # 32 Top 100 b/w When They Ring The Golden Bells on Columbia 41025. Both hits were backed by the Ray Ellis orchestra.

After a chart drought lasting four years, he returned with a bang in late 1961 with the smash *Big Bad John that soared to # 1 Adult Contemporary (AC), where it stayed for TEN weeks, # 1 Billboard Pop Hot 100 (for FIVE weeks), and # 1 Country (two weeks). The comical flipside, *I Won't Go Huntin' With You Jake (But I'll Go Chasin' Wimmin) got lost in the shuffle on Columbia 42175.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. The perfect place to get started. September 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Not familiar with this man past his sausage? Well, have you got a treat. This compilation presents the perfect intro to his music as it includes just about all of his big hits. Or, if you're just a casual fan, this is certainly the place to go.
Superb sound quality, original liner notes and original cover art make for a 5-star recommendation!

Big John is of course a legend, but there is other material in Mr. Dean's past that I think was overlooked and should be enjoyed by his fans as well as anyone else who may be... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars From song to sausage
Jimmy Dean was a singer of sorts before he became the sausage king. His voice was average and he was more like a story teller. His songs were more narrative than ballad. Read more

Great collection. A little upset that Big John is the radio Edit version. The second track, "The Cajun Queen" is embarrassing. Read more
