Country's Greatest Hits, Vol. 2: Southern Country Rock is a midline-priced collection that contains ten hits from the '70s and '80s, concentrating on Southern rock and country-rock. The quality of the material is a little uneven, but it's a good bargain considering its price. Among the highlights are such cuts as Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama," the Allman Brothers' "Ramblin' man," .38 Special's "Caught Up in You," Elvin Bishop's "Fooled Around and Fell in Love," Jerry Jeff Walker's "Up Against the Wall Redneck" and Johnny Paycheck's "Take This Job & Shove It."
