All you need to know about this set is that these are re-recordings of hits by Moe Bandy, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings (there is an early demo of "Lorena"), Mickey Gilley, Merle Haggard (a different live recording of "Okie from Muskogee" with some smart-assed comments from the audience), T.G. Sheppard, and Johnny Paycheck, with the worst version of "I'm the Only Hell My Mama Ever Raised" put on wax by the great one whose voice was gone by this point. Just avoid this, save your money, and score the original Outlaw Country disc instead.
