In country music, many claim to be “outlaws” but few have actually lived it. Even Johnny Cash, the king of outlaw country, has only been in jail once (for drunk driving). David Allan Coe is legit. He was a juvenile delinquent before squandering the crux of his 20s in the Ohio State Penitentiary. Upon his parole in 1967, Coe headed for Nashville to pursue a musical career. He wrote songs for George Jones, Tanya Tucker, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette and Johnny Paycheck, who landed a number-one hit with Coe’s blue-collar anthem “Take This Job andnd Shove It.” 17 Greatest Hits may be basic for his cult members, but it’s a great place to start for the casual fan or curious newcomer. “She Used to Love Me a Lot” opens with Coe’s throaty croon before he segues into more breathy inflections on Johnny Cunningham’s “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile,” a tune that flirted with countrypolitan while showcasing Coe’s versatile voice. More autobiographical songs like “Longhaired Redneck,” “This Bottle (In My Hand) and the Byrds-bashing “Willie, Waylon and Me” prove to be worth the price of admission.
there is just too much good stuff available out there for itunes to offer just one album by a great artist. although these are some of his good recordings, there are twice this many missing. buy the album. look elsewhere for the rest of the good stuff.
REAL COUNTRY MUSIC!
People can say what they want, but DAC is no more racist than any rapper or hip hop artist. What he is: honest. This is real country music, music like this would never be played on a light rock station like half of todays "country"
This is a good CD. I would reccomend it to anyone who likes David Allan Coe. The best track on thsi CD is , This Bottle In My Hand.
