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.

This is a very good album. The best song is Big Bad John. The Other nine songs are good too.We have the orinal flip side of that I Wont Go Huntin With You Jake But Ill Go Chasin Women. Then theres covers like Sixteen Tons Gotta Travel On and Smoke Smoke Smoke That Cigarette. Oaklahoma Bill and Grasshopper MacClain are story songs as I said in the review for the extended version of this album which has more songs.To a Sleeping Beauty is another one and also a song that will choke up every father of a daughter. Finally we have Night Train To Memphes and Make The Water Wheel Roll. As I said this is a good album. You should get it.

This Jimmy Dean cd is good for those who have past given up on Jimmy Dean recordings because of poor sound quality. It is fun entertainment for both young and older people who like to re-find pleasures from the past. The recording quality is excellent on this cd that I am corrected for how good young Jimmy Dean is singing his songs and telling his stories on these tracks. Enjoy...

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.

It had been many years since I heard this song. As I downloaded it onto the "Hard-Drive" of my Computer, it brought back many fond memories. I will soon be "burning" another CD for the stereo system, in my truck. Thanks again, for having the "CLASSICS".

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.

This album is awesome in every way if you are a lover of 50s music. We bought it for my 90s something Dad. He LOVED it . He was also a John so particularly loved being big & bad.
