Two records that top most of what mainstream country had to offer at the end of the 70s – back to back on a single CD! Compass Point is a record that celebrates ten years of freedom for David Allan Coe – a decade since he was released from prison – and a set that was also recorded at the famous Compass Point studios in the Bahamas, as you might guess from the title! Yet the sound of the record is prime Coe country at its best – tight, confident, yet nicely away from any too-mainstream modes – the balance between almost-stardom and too-honest that always makes for such great tension in his music. Titles include "Three Time Loser", "Gone", "Merle & Me", "Loving Her Will Make You Lose Your Mind", "Xs & Os", and "Heads Or Tails". I've Got Something To Say is a record that offers up plenty of bold statements from the legendary David Allan Coe – but it's also a record that opens the door for a host of great guests and friends – including vocals from Guy Clark, Larry Jon Wilson
, Kris Kristofferson, and Bill Anderson. The tunes do a great job of touching on the kinds of themes that always matter to Coe – and titles include "Hank Williams Junior Junior", "The Bottle In My Hand", "Take It Easy Rider", "Back To Atlanta", "Take This Job & Shove It Too", "Lovin You Comes So Natural", and "Get A Little Dirt On Your Hands".
