17 Greatest Hits is the most thorough retrospective assembled of David Allan Coe's outlaw heyday, containing every one of his biggest hits -- including "You Never Even Called Me by My Name," "The Ride," "Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile," "Willie, Waylon and Me," "Longhaired Redneck," and "She Used to Love Me a Lot" -- plus a wealth of minor hits and lesser-known album tracks. The result is a comprehensive overview of one of the most respected and admired, if not necessarily popular, country singers of the late '70s and early '80s. ~ Thom Owens
