The Best of Jimmy Dean

This means it's not as complete as the best collection on the market, but it's more generous than the compilation that, as of the turn of the century, was still the best Jimmy Dean collection yet assembled.

For the record, the "Big Bad John" on The Best of Jimmy Dean is the "big, big man," not the "hell of a man" version of the single.
