Ultimate Collection is the most lengthy and comprehensive anthology yet assembled on Jerry Jeff Walker, with tracks licensed from three different labels spanning the late '60s through the late '70s. His classic "Mr. Bojangles" is here with other crowd pleasers such as "Hairy Ass Hillbillies," "Pissin' in the Wind," and "Up Against the Wall Redneck." Walker had a poetic side, too, but Ultimate Collection focuses mainly on his rambunctious singalongs, and entirely skips some of his early albums. All but one of his hits from the '70s is included, but none of his '80s hits made the cut. In sum, Ultimate Collection is an imperfect survey of Walker's first decade or so, but has plenty of popular appeal.

If you don't have this album you don't know Jerry! It is the best of the best all on one CD. You can listen for hours and it just gets better every go around. Classic Walker. It stays in my car CD player year round. Buy it and I promise you won't be sorry. Love that JJ.
