Shakin’ The Blues

Shakin’ The Blues

Most people remember outlaw country maverick Johnny Paycheck from his 1977 mega hit Take This Job And Shove It.’ But what a few collectors have known for years is that Johnny cut some of his best records in the late ’50s and early ’60s under his original stage name of Donny Young. For the first time, Bear Family gathers all of his recordings, from his Decca cuts with Owen Bradley producing, to his Mercury label tracks with George Jones’ band providing the backing, to true obscurities from the Todd label, some of which are seeing the light of day for the first time here. From the stomping Shakin’ The Blues on down to weepers like On Second Thought, Paycheck’s vocal mastery shines through. Features 5 previously unissued recordings.
