Audium's John Anderson Anthology is a two disc set that should be avoided as it contains re-recordings of the country vocalist's biggest hits. Fans of John Anderson should seek out Greatest Hits on Warner Bros. which contains the original hit versions of "I'm Just an Old Chunk of Coal," "1959," "Wild & Blue," "Black Sheep," and the huge country/pop crossover tune from 1982, "Swingin'." ~ Al Campbell
