Someday a record company will come along and do a definitive collection of Paycheck's career. CMF records did a good job of his 64-68 career. This budget compilation covers his Epic years and his preferable to Super Hits because it includes "Colorado Cool-Aid" and "Me and the IRS". But beware. There are no liner notes and the sound is botched at the beginning of the live "IRS". A note to Epic Records: Stop being cheap and add some liner notes to your 16 Biggest Hits series.

Johnny Paycheck is a classic "C&W" singer, par excellence. His voice throughout this CD is exactly what you feel a C&W singer should be. This a great CD that sets the bar for the genre, and I'm glad I got it. You will be too if you buy it.

Something happened to Don Adam's bass in "A Heart Don't Need Eyes" "Loving You Beats All I've Ever Seen" has the fiddle removed, you can faintly hear it in the background of the intro, Plus it'd help if it said "Me And The I.R.S." is LIVE, it's NOT the album version, you lie amazon.

I purchased this as a gift, but I can comment on it since I like some of Paycheck's music.

Like the item says, this is 16 of his biggest hits. The one most likely to be remembered is "Take This Job and Shove It," sang as only he can. I still remember the song when it came out originally and the stir it made. His other songs are no less powerful, and this includes the "Outlaw's Prayer," which could stand being aired a little more today. Oddly, this is a cross from the old country and the new versions, well before the time. It isn't as depressing as some, but still comes from the heart of a man who had seen times changing.

We Love Johnny Paycheck music. "Slide off of your satin sheets" is a favorite. I heard it on an oldies station and the next thing I know I'm downloading the album from Amazon prime and listening to the whole album, going down the road with speakers full blast and letting everyone hear what turns me on ; - )

While I was never a big fan of the "Outlaw" movement of the 1970's, I was always a fan of Johnny Paycheck. Personally, I dont think Paycheck cared if he was termed an Outlaw or not....he just put out balls-to-the-wall honky tonk in the most unabashedly shameless way he knew how. While maintaining his own unique delivery, Johnny Paycheck was influenced most of all by the sounds of George Jones and was a continuation of the Jones' sound (with a litlle more roughness around the edges!). This Epic collection contains 16 songs, including of course, his novelty song "Take This Job and Shove It". More importantly (in my opinion) is the inclusion of his two greatest contributions to Country Music: the hilarious "Colorado Cool-Aid" (a song that today's PC country music radio will not play), and "Drinkin' and Drivin'". I sure wish we still had performers that had the cajones of Mr Paycheck, but I'm afraid that buying this CD is the only way you can get back to an era when real country music singers sang real country music without worrying about political correctness. Those were the days. Get this one. A+
