AllMusic Review by

The ten tracks that make up Intercontinental's Jammin' Oldies: Classic Country are re-recordings of popular country hits from the '60s and '70s. While every tune is recognizable, these aren't the versions heard on the radio, and in a few cases the arrangements are quite different. Hits like "Take This Job and Shove It" (Johnny Paycheck), "Behind Closed Doors" (Charlie Rich), "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" (Freddy Fender), and "Okie From Muskogee," by (Merle Haggard), can easily be found in their original form on other compilations, so skip this!
