David Allan Coe - Once Upon a Rhyme (1974)

Classic Columbia logo and label from DAC, the Original Rhinestone Cowboy. I saw Coe once at the Macon County Fair in Decatur, IL and, no joke, the opening act was a bunch of trashed-out circus elephants slam dunking basketballs in a portable hoop. I think every biker in the county was there; beers were a dollar. Every song on this record is solid country gold and , boy, can Coe sing. This is way before he started to look like Rob Zombie.
