Out Of Print & Hard To Find: Johnny Paycheck – The Real Mr. Heartache (The Little Darlin’ Years)

This one is a request from a buddy over at altcountrytab.ca who pointed out to me that this collection was out of print and going for outrageous prices over at amazon and other outlets. I’ll admit, that while I am familiar with early Johnny Paycheck, I was not familiar with this collection….and I’m glad I searched it out….cause it’s a damn fine collection. Folks who dig early George Jones (and that excellent Hard Core Honky Tonk collection (also out of print) I posted a while back) will UNDOUBTEDLY love this. Matter of fact anyone who loves traditional HARD CORE HONKY TONK will love this! These tracks are culled from Paycheck’s first several albums covering the years of 1966 – 1969. They quickly went out of print on vinyl, only to be remastered and revived by this album here in 1996…..which has subsequently also went out of print. Shame really, cause this is some of the best and purest country music you are likely to hear.

Here is what USA Today had to say about this particular collection, which I liked so I’m quoting it here: “…his early recordings were some of the most intense material Nashville had ever heard…”

1. Don’t Start Countin’ On Me
2. The Girl They Talk About
3. A-11
4. The Real Mr. Heartache
5. I’m Barely Hangin’ On To Me
6. The Lovin’ Machine
7. He’s In A Hurry (To Get Home To My Wife)
8. The Ballad Of Frisco Bay
9. Wherever You Are
10. Big Town Baby
11. Hang On Sally
12. (Pardon Me) I’ve Got Someone To Kill
13. (It’s A Mighty Thin Line) Between Love And Hate
14. Apartment #9
15. The Late And Great Me
16. Motel Time Again
17. Jukebox Charlie
18. Touch My Heart
19. My Baby Don’t Love Me Anymore
20. The Cave
21. Don’t Monkey With Another Monkey’s Monkey
22. (Like Me) You’ll Recover In Time
23. It Won’t Be Long (And I’ll Be Hating You)
24. If I’m Gonna Sink (I Might As Well Go To The Bottom)

    Undeniably imagine that which you said. Your favourite reason appeared to be
    at the internet the simplest thing to consider of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people
    think about concerns that they plainly don’t know about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire
    thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be again to get more. Thank you
