Editorial Reviews

As complex an artist as he is, the "Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy" has still had over 30 hits and written smashes for Tanya Tucker and Johnny Paycheck. Here are his own Would You Lay with Me (in a Field of Stone) and Take This Job and Shove It plus his hits Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile; The Ride; You Never Even Called Me by My Name; Longhaired Redneck , and eight more!

"Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in a pickup truck
She got run'd over by a damned old train"

How can anybody not love lyrics like that?

'nuff said.

I remember recording this onto cassette in the early 1980's and decided to move to CD. Great oultlaw country that holds up after decades have passed. Really loving it. At these prices I can afford to update all my old records. I have played it an indecent number of times. I am an old man now but reminds me of when I was a bit of a tearaway (Australian for hellraiser).

This a a great collection for those who remember the old David Allan Coe hits and then some. Brings a lot from the past and a bit of the newer stuff. If you don't know who the man is....you should consider listening to him a bit.

I was expecting a dirtier line of songs. These songs are the clean nice works by Mr. Coe. Still very satisfying.

Anybody who likes Outlaw Country style music should like this album. "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" is my favorite country and western song, makes me want a beer and I stopped drinking beer over two years ago. All the Coe recordings that I'm familiar with are on this album and they sound great on my headphones, the twang and bass is crisp and clear. No use in me listing the songs since you can see 'em and hear samples. 'scuze me while I clean my boots.
