With a 22-month jail sentence for shooting a man, Johnny PayCheck was one outlaw country singer for whom the label was appropriate. This collection focuses on his classic '70s period, and offers a good introduction to the non-Waylon and Willie wing of the outlaw country movement. PayCheck's Coors-and-Marlboro-Red-ravaged voice alone is worth the price of admission, but "Colorado Kool-Aid," "I'm the Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised)," "Drinkin' and Drivin'," "She's All I Got" and "Take This Job and Shove It" are must hear tunes.
