AllMusic Review by

Buyer Beware: the ten tracks that make up Intercontinental's Country Anthems are re-recordings of classic country hits. While every tune is recognizable, including "Take This Job and Shove It" (Johnny Paycheck), "Okie From Muskogee" (Merle Haggard), "Lookin' for Love" (Johnny Lee), and "Folsom Prison Blues" (Johnny Cash), these aren't the versions heard on the radio, and in a few cases, the arrangements pale in comparison. Many of these tracks can easily be found in their original form on other compilations, so skip this!
