Sony/BMG's PLAYLIST series features concise compilations of great American artists, sporting eco-friendly packaging and focusing on the work the artists have done for labels that fall under the Sony/BMG umbrella. In the case of outlaw country legend David Allan Coe, that translates into the definitive portion of his repertoire. From the good-humored honky-tonker “You Never Even Called Me By My Name” to the confrontational “If That Ain't Country,” and the surprisingly tender “Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone),” every facet of this American original is heard in peak form.
