The Real Mr. Heartache: The Little Darlin’ Years

Produced 1996 by Little Darlin’ Record Company. CD has 24 songs.The years have been unkind to the former Donald Eugene Lytle, who seems destined to be remembered for his legendary travails with drugs, liquor, and the law rather than his vital musical contributions. By the time the first of these 24 songs was cut for Hilltop in 1964, Johnny Paycheck had already: run away from home at 15; hopped endless freight trains to sing in dive bars across the country; received a court martial from the navy for fracturing an officer’s skull; escaped twice from military prison; toured alongside George Jones, Ray Price, Porter Wagoner, and Faron Young; and been fired by all of them for excessive drinking and a hot temper. Impressive credentials indeed for a honky-tonk singer. He formed the Little Darlin’ label with producer Aubrey Mayhew in 1966 and created some of the world’s most impudent, painfully genuine honky-tonk, distinguished by Lloyd Green’s pedal-steel pyrotechnics and his own agony-ridden vocals. His emotive pronunciations will immediately call to mind George Jones, who he toured with on and off for six years (and who, according to the liner notes, actually copped his inimitable vocal style from Paycheck). Perhaps the most overlooked aspect of Paycheck’s talent is his songwriting, which shows a knack for turning a classic country phrase. He reprises hits he wrote for Tammy Wynette (“Apartment #9”) and Ray Price (“Touch My Heart”) and offers such startling titles as “(Pardon Me) I’ve Got Someone to Kill,” “It Won’t Be Long (And I’ll Be Hating You),” and “If I’m Gonna Sink (I Might as Well Go to the Bottom).” Play this at your next dinner party. –Marc Greilsamer

11 Months & 29 Days: Slide Off Your Satin Sheets

11 Months & 29 Days: Slide Off Your Satin Sheets

Raven presents for the first time on CD two of the finest US “outlaw country” albums ever made. 11 Months And 29 Days was much more than the length of (one of) JOHNNY PAYCHECK’S sentences for lawless behaviour. Recorded for Columbia in 1976 it marked a turning point for the singer dubbed “one of the greatest honky tonkers of his time”. It and 1977’s Slide Off Of Your Satin Sheets, defined a new era in country music that reverberates with contemporary artists to this day. With five bonus tracks from Paycheck’s stunning tribute to Merle Haggard Mr. Hag Told My Story this top value 2-for-1 captures the distinctive voice of a rebellious and influential country artist at the peak of his craft. Superb quality audio, 25 tracks, over 75 minutes of music with detailed liner notes and period photographs.
