This reissue from Omni features a pair of LPs by Grandpa Jones, Everybody's Grandpa and Sings Hits from Hee Haw, originally issued on Monument in the late '60s and early '70s. Highlights among the 33 tracks include "Are You from Dixie?," Night Train to Memphis," "Mountain Dew," and the Jones-penned standard "Eight More Miles to Louisville." Since very little is available on CD from Grandpa Jones, this reissue should please both casual listeners and collectors. ~ Al Campbell
