Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Paycheck, Johnny - Mr. Hag Told My Story Mr. Hag Told My Story
Country New - LP FE 36761 Epic
Sealed And Tough To Find 1981 Original With Custom Song Sticker On Shrink. “Tribute Albums Are Part Of Country Music's Bread And Butter, With Artists Routinely Paying Tribute To Their Favorite Vocalists And Songwriters Through Records Filled With Covers. Since It's Such A Routine Event, It's Easy To Take Them For Granted, Particularly When They Often Cover Familiar Ground, Recycling The Same Hits Over And Over Again, Which Is Why A Tribute Record As Sublime And Subtle As Johnny Paycheck's Mr. Hag Told My Story Can Sometime Slip Through The Cracks. Which Is Unfortunate, Since This Is A Sterling Example Of What A Tribute Album Can Be. Released In 1981 As His Final Album For Epic, Mr. Hag Told My Story Finds Johnny Digging Through The Merle Haggard Songbook, Assembling Ten Perfect Barroom Ballads And Then, In A Great Coup, Recording Them With The Strangers Themselves, Including Three Duets With Merle. Instead Of Picking Predictable Songs, Paycheck Avoids The Really Big Hits, Choosing A Bunch Of Lesser-Known Gems Haggard Has Penned. There Are Some Big Hits Here — "Turnin' Off A Memory" And "You Don't Have Very Far To Go" As Well As The Tommy Collins-Written "Carolyn," Which Is Given A Great Duet — But The Emphasis Is On Personal Favorites Of Johnny And Merle. Paycheck States Exactly That In The Liner Notes, But The Performances Are Where He Offers Proof, Because He And The Strangers Give These A Wonderful, Lived-In Feel, Rich With Emotion And Graceful Interplay Between The Band. Since There Aren't Many Big Hits Here, It May Have Been Overlooked At The Time, Barely Scraping The Country Top 40, But This Perfectly Executed Tribute Ranks Not Just As One Of Paycheck's Finest, But As One Of The Great Late-Night Honky Tonk Records In Country.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details
 
Paycheck, Johnny - Slide Off Of Your Satin Sheets Slide Off Of Your Satin Sheets
Country New - LP KE 34693 Epic
Sealed 1977 Original With Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. “Even If 11 Months And 29 Days Didn't Tear Up The Charts, It Established The Sound And Persona That Became Johnny Paycheck's Signature In The Late '70s, And It Provided The Template For His Next Album, Slide Off Of Your Satin Sheets, Which Did Indeed Become A Big Hit, In Large Part Due To Its Title Track, A Relaxed, Nearly Seductive Tune That Once Again Illustrated How Billy Sherrill Could Polish Singers As Ornery As Paycheck Without Defanging Them. All Of Satin Sheets Is A Smoother Affair Than 11 Months And 29 Days, But It Doesn't Feel Compromised: It Just Feels That The Focus Has Shifted Slightly, Emphasizing The Elements Of Paycheck's Music That Would Win Him A Wider Audience. And This Isn't Limited To The Ballads — This Includes The Rougher, Wilder Material, As On The Myth-Making Rebel Anthem "I'm The Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised)" Or The Williams' Worshipping "Hank (You Tried To Tell Me)" Or The Revival Of The Classic Honky Tonk Song "You're Still On My Mind" Or The Riotous "I've Got Them Lookin' In The Mirror Wonderin' Where My Woman Went Blues" Which Is Every Bit As Funny As The Title Suggests. These Are Songs That Are Broad Enough To Win A Large Audience, But Never At The Expense Of Paycheck's Integrity. Despite The Slight Polish Here, He Remains One Of The Hardest Country Singers In History, And This Is One Of His Best Records, Retaining Its Potency Years After Its Release.” - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details
