The Mysterious David Allan Coe: 4 Classic Albums 1974-1978 (RVCD-371) (Double CD)

On great value Double CD, Raven presents The Mysterious David Allan Coe: 4 Classic Albums 1974-1978 by one of the most colourful and talented characters in country music history – DAVID ALLAN COE. The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy (1974), Once upon a Rhyme (1974), Longhaired Redneck (1976) and Rides Again (1977) are the first four classic albums Coe recorded for Columbia Records. This collection adds bonus tracks from a further two Columbia LPs, Tattoo and Family Album (both 1978). Coe went on to record a further 20 albums during his 13-year association with Columbia. His 1975 cover of Steve Goodman’s ‘You Never Even Call Me by My Name’ (from Once upon a Rhyme) cracked the Billboard Country Top 10.

Furthermore it was around this time that Coe became one of Nashville’s hottest songwriters – Willie Nelson, George Jones and Tammy Wynette had already covered his songs and both Tanya Tucker’s version of ‘Would You Lay with Me (In A Field of Stone)’ and Johnny Paycheck’s version of ‘Take This Job And Shove It’ were #1 Country hits. Coe’s own recordings of both songs appear on this outstanding collection, the high-water mark for outlaw country music. Other highlights include his songs ‘A Sad Country Song’, ‘Longhaired Redneck’ and ‘Willie, Waylon and Me’ plus covers of Mickey Newbury’s ‘The 33rd of August’, Guy Clark’s ‘Desperados Waiting for the Train’, Tom Jans’ ‘Shine it On’ and Dave Loggins’ ‘Please Come To Boston’. “Coe was among the biggest cult figures in country music throughout his career, a life-long renegade and one of the pioneering artists of the outlaw country movement of the ‘70s.” – All Music Guide. With 47 tracks, 150 minutes of superb audio quality, color booklet and detailed liner notes.
