One has to wonder about the need for such a thing in the first place: an older and grizzlier Ozark Mountain Daredevils re-recording their hits in Nash Vegas to be released on the Belgian label Music Avenue, which can't even get the track listing right! When the music starts the answer to that question becomes painfully clear. But the shoddy package makes it even more of a disgrace. When the best thing that can be said about the set is that its liner notes are informative, what does that tell you? A lone example -- one of many -- is that the second cut is listed as "Jackie Blue," the band's number three smash, when it's actually "It'll Shine When It Shines." And Jackie Blue doesn't appear until track ten! The whole album is out of order with its listing, and these re-recorded versions don't do the originals justice and the CD sound quality is nothing less than horrid. This is a must-avoid at all costs.
