Back in the sixties when I was just becomming aware of what music was, my father listened to arists like Jimmy Dean, the New Christy Minstrels, the Kingston Trio, and others. No matter how wide musical tastes become, I think we all enjoy listening to the first sounds we remember as young people. And the musicians in those days were great story tellers and ballad singers. This album from Jimmy Dean is American folklore, history, and patriotism at its best.

This budget priced CD is a straight reissue of the album from 1961, yet it does have different cover art than the original LP. Every song on this album is a classic which makes this a must buy for your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Wimp Ending for Big Bad John January 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This would of been 5 stars, but I am unhappy to report (contrary to previous reviews) the version of Big Bad John on this CD ends with the phrase, "At the bottom of this mine lies a big, big man.... Big John". I bought this CD expecting to get the original "lies one hell of a man" version. It really does detract from a great song I've enjoyed listening to for more than 30 years. The other 9 songs on this CD are awesome! It's a great value even with the lame ending of Big Bad John.

3.0 out of 5 stars big bad john September 24, 2014
Format:Audio CD
My Dad didn't buy a lot of '45s. but Big Bad John was one of them. That is one of those songs that no matter how many times you hear it you never get tired of. When I found this cd. That song and then later I.O.U. were the only songs that I really knew of Jimmy Dean. This cd has good versions of Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette. And I wont Go Huntin' With You Jake, both written by Stuart Hamblen. And a very good Father/Daughter story To A Sleeping Beauty. But besides Big Bad John the highlight to me is another Stuart Hamblen song. Oklahoma Bill. It will just absolutely hit you in the heart. I had never heard it and it worth buying the cd for.
