Day 314

The Judds- Greatest Hits

Surprised I own this one? Kinda weird that it comes right after Judas Priest, but up until now, The Judds were always a guilty pleasure. C'mon now, "Mama He's Crazy"? That's good stuff. But this record is all the Judds I need.

I actually blame CMT for making me a Judds fan. When I was working at a record store throughout the 90's, I would watch Country Music Television quite a bit as homework. I live in Texas, so I had to keep up with what the customers were asking for. Most of it was pure crap (Garth Brooks, etc), but a few /artists stuck with me besides the Judds like Steve Wariner, Marty Stuart and Dwight Yoakum. I think theses acts were also the last wave of "real" country. Most of the 90's on stuff is up is pure crap and should be ashamed of calling themselves country music. It's pop music with a twang and a cowboy hat.

So I guess what I'm saying is I have a sprinkling of 80's/early 90's country music throughout my collection. It's good to mix it up a bit.

Oh and I'm finally done with the J's! I can't think of much that I'm missing, but I'd love to get some Japancakes on vinyl if it even exists. And some Jesu.
