Editorial Reviews

If you slapped up "Wanted" posters for all the great outlaw country singers, David Allan Coe is the one no lawman would want to tangle with. A denizen of the state of Ohio's penal system from the age of nine until 27, Coe has charted probably the most uncompromising course of any artist in popular music, provoking charges of misogyny, indecency (e.g. his infamous X-Rated Hits) and racism (a charge Coe strenuously denies), while at the same time recording and writing some of the most radical and personal country music ever waxed. At first glance, Texas Moon, which was released in 1977 but recorded before Sun Records sold Coe's contract to Columbia, is the product of "bad" David not only does the "Moon" in the title refer to the prominently displayed naked posteriors of Coe and band (and dog) on the front cover, but the back cover displays his prison record and mug shot. But this record actually plays it straight; it's a beautiful assortment of originals and well-chosen covers, played with a sound and authenticity that latter-day alt-country bands would die for. Our Real Gone reissue of this long-lost album features notes by Chris Morris it's a fascinating recording from a multi-faceted artist.

There may never have been as iconoclastic a country artist as David Allan Coe. Though his rejection of Nashville norms drew parallels with the outlaw movement, he always seemed a notch wilder and less predictable than Waylon, Willie and the boys. Reared largely in reform schools and prisons through his late-20s, his bluesy 1969 debut, Penitentiary Blues, didn't predict his turn to country, but certainly showed off the outspoken songwriting that would sustain his career. At turns, Coe was a rebel, a rhinestone suited cowboy, a biker and a successful Nashville songwriter. After a pair of albums for Shelby Singleton's indie SSS label, Coe hooked up with a rock band for a couple of years, wrote a chart-topping hit for Tanya Tucker, and signed with Columbia in 1974.

This 1977 release on Shelby's Plantation label appears to have been recorded in 1973, on the eve of the songwriting revolution fueled in large part by Kris Kristofferson, Billy Joe Shaver and Guy Clark. All three are represented (Kristofferson with "Why Me," Shaver with "Ride Me Down Easy" and Clark with "That Old Time Feeling"), along with Mickey Newbury ("Why You Been Gone So Long") and Jackson Browne ("These Days"). Coe finds a deep resonance with these then-contemporary songs, but the way he pulls older selections into his universe is even more impressive. He converts John Greer's early-50s "Got You on My Mind" from R&B to country-soul and turns Johnny Cash's Sun-era tragedy "Give My Love to Rose" into a mournful '70s ballad.

Coe wrote only two of the songs here, the sympathetic "Mary Magdeline" and the prescient "Fuzzy Was an Outlaw." Both exhibit the sort of blunt honesty that would become his trademark.

I believe when David played with the Tennessee Hat Band it was some of the best music ever made. After this album they were one of the best bands I'd ever heard live !! Saw them at the Great Southeast Music Hall in Atlanta, many times. I think if they had stayed together they could have been phenomenal !!

If you liked "YouNever Even Called Me By My Name", ALL the David Allen Coe albums are worth buying! I recently splurged and rebought all the DAC I had on vinyl and I keep finding excellent music I never heard before. (No, there are no new tracks; there are ust so many that I never took time to listen to before. Dave is incredibly prolific and never got the treatment on thr air or in production that he deserved. I rate him right alongside Waylon, Willie, Johnny Cash and Bocephus and I'm happy to have upgraded my entire DAC collection. Money well spent!
