1-CD with 36-page booklet, 24 tracks. Playing time approx. 78 mns.
An outlaw pioneer's best work… un-reissued on CD until now. Soulful songs and rock 'n' roll attitude – a sharp contrast to the sterility of today’s country music. Include classic hits, such as The Ride and
Mona Lisa's Lost Her Smile, as well as a duet with George Jones. Every CD has previously unissued bonus tracks. Essential listening for everyone who loves Waylon, Willie, and the ‘70s outlaws.
And now we continue our ongoing exploration of the unjustly overlooked David Allan Coe catalog. A life-long renegade, Coe has been one of the most colorful and unpredictable characters in country music… or any music. An outlaw pioneer, he didn't score many big hits, although he wrote several big hits for others… including Would You Lay With Me In A Field Of Stone and Take This Job And Shove It. He was also incredibly prolific: during thirteen years with Columbia Records, he released almost two LPs a year. Here, we focus on the years 1982-1985.
'Just Divorced' and 'Darlin’, Darlin'' are from 1984 and 1985. 'Just Divorced' is a collection about bittersweet emotions inspired by … divorce. It includes DAC's biggest hit as a singer, the sublime
Mona Lisa's Lost Her Smile. Darlin’, Darlin' on the other hand, is simply a collection of terrific songs, including a duet with George Jones on Don’t Cry Darlin’.
