Coe, David Allan - Invictus Means Unconquered Invictus Means Unconquered
Country New - LP JC 36970 Columbia
Sealed 1981 Original. “After The Bleak, Showbiz Disappointment Of 1980's I've Got Something To Say, David Allan Coe Showed His Eternal Penchant For Rebounding By Releasing What Is Arguably The Finest Album Of His Career In 1981. Invictus Means Unconquered Is A Solid Collection Of Originals, Co-Writes, And A Cover Or Two That Is So Emotionally Riveting, Gorgeously Played And Sung, And Tastefully Produced It's A Shame It Was Released At The Height Of Urban Cowboy-Ism And Sank Without A Trace. This Time Out, Coe Really Did Have Something To Say, Evidenced By The Poem "Invictus" That Appears As An Epigraph For The Album. Billy Sherrill Took A Front Production Seat And Ron Bledsoe Concentrated On The Instrumentation And The Mix. The Band Is Crack On Invictus; Bledsoe Held The Reins Tight And Let Sherrill Create An Atmosphere That Was Both Immediate And Dreamy. While There Isn't A Weak Second On This Disc, Two Other Tracks Stand Out Above The Rest: Coe's Version Of Silverstein's "Someplace To Come To When It Rains" And He And Clark's Outlaw Anthem Dedicated To John Dillinger, "I Love Robbin' Banks." From Top To Bottom, Invictus Means Unconquered Towers Above Most Country Records Not Only Of The Era, But Of All Time. It's A Quintessential Example Of Everything Country Music Can Achieve When It Is Honest, True, And From The Center Of A Broken Heart.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
 
Coe, David Allan - Compass Point Compass Point
Country New - LP JC 36277 Columbia
Sealed & Scarce 1979 Original. “David Allan Coe Was Prolific In The 1970s; He Released Nine Albums Between 1974-1979 On The Columbia Label Alone, Along With Some Self-Released Albums Of Questionable Taste For Fan-Club Members And Texas Moon On The Plantation Label. Compass Point Is A Solid Outing From Top To Bottom. Coe Goes To The Well Once More For Respect, With A Cast Of Killer Studio Musicians — Some Of Whom Were Members Of His Road Band — And The Combined Production Talents Of Billy Sherrill And Ron Bledsoe, Who Had Come To Work Together Seamlessly. With Bledsoe's Gritty, In-Your-Face, Performance-Based Approach And Sherrill's Polish And Sense Of Space And Texture, They Were Able To Balance All Of The Inherent Contradictions In Coe's Music, From The Gorgeous Balladry Of "Gone," "Heads Or Tails," And The Elaborately Arranged Dark Honky Tonk Of "Merle And Me" (Not Haggard) To The Rocking Bluegrass Stomp Of "Honey Don't" And The Boozy Tex-Mex Swagger Of "Lost." The Album's Classic Has To Be "Loving Her (Will Make You Lose Your Mind)." Here, Hard Country Instrumentation Meets Tejano Melody And Caribbean Backbeats In An Easy, Shuffling Breeze Of A Dark Song Of Regret And Warning. As A Coda To A Decade That Went By In A Blur Of Fame, Success, Madness, Tragedy, And Disappointment, Coe Left It On A Very High Note With An Album That Looked Brightly To The Future.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
