DAVID ALLAN COE LONGHAIRED REDNECK • RIDES AGAIN 
"A guy wrote a letter to my record company and said he heard me in concert one night and I acted like I'd invented country music. That I talked so much trash. It's not that I invented country music. It's that I have, in fifteen years, really made a hell of a mark in country music. And I have not been given credit for what I've done." 
David Allan Coe (to Michael Bane) 'Country Music Magazine' ca. 1985 
Even a brief study of the life and music of David Allan Coe leads one to the inevitable question of which comes first: the music or the image? And where would one be without the other? 

David Allan Coe is admittedly one of the most unique, roughcut, and controversial figures ever to swagger across modern country music's often smooth, placid landscape. This ex-convict, ex-motorcycle gangmember is a textbook case of man whose music and whose public persona have become almost inseparable in the listening public's imagination. 

Whether Coe laments the lack of critical and historical recognition he's been afforded or despairs over the fact that his music has seldom been measured outside the shadow of his heavily tattooed, long-haired, hellraising, larger-than-life and largely self-created image, he's got a point on both counts. After all, he is one of the few completely self-styled artists to ever claw, bluster, and brawl his way intact through the repressive and largely conformist Nashville studio system in the mid-1970s. Along the way, he did make a considerable mark for himself on the heels of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and other prominent leaders of country music's long-gone 'Outlaw' movement. 

And —like Jennings and Nelson — Coe, 'The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy,' never left Nashville, yet still managed to do it on his own terms: singing his own songs, sometimes recording with his own band, and always projecting a public image (or actually 'several' public images, for that matter) that were clearly of his own creation and no record company publicist's idle daydream. ('Who', after all, could have 'invented"The Mysterious Rhinestone Cowboy' except Coe himself?) For Coe, his first taste of major-label success in the mid-1970s — records in the charts and the critical accolades —were reassurances that he'd finally arrived at a place he'd been trying to get to for years. 

Coe came to Nashville in the mid-1960s, fresh out of prison. But his musical aspirations dated back many years before that, back to his native state of Ohio where he'd done time in the Ohio Penitentiary and various other penal institutions and youth reformatories. 

"I grew up listening to all kinds of music and I've got a lot of different influences musically from the early fifties. (Everyone from black groups to Jimmie Rodgers and Lefty Frizzell and Hank Williams.) ... At one time I was playing clarinet and saxophone in a 27-piece orchestra, I was playing drums in a jazz band, I was playing guitar and piano in a country and western band, I was playing fiddle and mandolin in a bluegrass band, and I was doing all that at the same time. 

Then, when I got out of prison and started working in bars ... I had a band called Ely Radish, and we were based out of Cleveland, Ohio. We had hair down to our waist and were playing country music before it was real fashionable ... We were playing country and rock'n roll at the same time and that was long before the Byrds or any of those people came along ... We did an album called 'I Didn't Raise My Son To Be A Soldier,' which was probably the worst album in the world..." 
David Allan Coe (as told to Otto Kitsinger) June, 1987

DAVID ALLAN COE

David Allan Coe on Bear Family Records We are truly proud to be the only label to offer Coes best recordings in this comprehensive form. (Bear Family Records) David Allan Coe The eternally rebellious outsider is one of the most dazzling and unpredictable artists in country music and the entire music scene.

A pioneer of the outlaw movement, David Allan Coe himself had no hits, but wrote several for other performers, including Would You Lay With Me In A Field Of Stone and Take This Job And Shove It. Coe was hyperactive: During his 13 years with Columbia he released two albums almost every year. Castles In The Sand' and'Hello In There' were released in 1983 and critics agree:'Castles In The Sand' is one of the most underrated albums of its time - and one of the most unusual. Coe wrote only three songs for this album, and co-wrote another one. The title song is dedicated to Bob Dylan, one of the two most misunderstood artists of her generation - the other is Coe herself. David Allan Coe imitates Dylan's voice during the complete verses and sings the choruses with his own. Title 2 is a funky version of Dylan's Gotta Serve Somebody, recorded with Lacy J. Dalton. Another highlight is the eerie cover version of The Ride, a No. 4 country hit from 1983, in which the spirit of Hank Williams appears to offer his help.

Hello In There runs on two tracks: Province & City. Once again David Allan Coe mixes his own compositions with cover versions and excavations that reflect his feelings at that time. Play tips are Hello In There by John Prine, Jerry Butlers He (Will Break Your Heart) and Gotta Travel On by Billy Grammer.

DAVID ALLAN COE

Epic self-mythologist David Allan Coe arrived in Nashville on November 3, 1968, one year and one day after his release from Marion Correctional Institute in Ohio. He signed with music publisher Audie Ashworth, who'd just signed J.J. Cale. After trying to land a contract for Coe without any success, Ashworth encouraged him to get a day job. Coe resisted. "If you get a steady job you start living like citizen people," he said. "You run up debt, and then you need the steady job to pay off the debt." And so Coe stayed with friends and got by on little.

"Columnist Jack Hurst was the guy that really got me started," said Coe. "He'd seen my car, the hearse, parked down at the Grand Ole Opry. He come down, wrote a story about me." Hurst's piece piqued the interest of producer-label owner Shelby Singleton, who was flush with money from Harper Valley PTA. With that money, he bought the old Sun Records catalog, and along with the Sun tapes came a would-be producer from Memphis named Teddy Paige, who'd been in one of the last acts on Sun, the Jesters. "I talked to Coe," said Singleton, "and he told his stories. He wanted to be a country singer. I said, 'Lemme hear something.' He started singing all these songs about prison life. I said, 'Hell, ain't none of them songs country.' He said he had hundreds more prison songs up in Ohio, so I give him and Teddy Paige two hundred dollars and told them to bring 'em back." This was the only song on Coe's first LP that he didn't write or cowrite. It was the work of one of Ashworth's songwriters, Hank Mills, who'd written the best song ever about Nashville, Kay. Like the rest of the LP, it was set to an insistent Jimmy Reed beat.

 

Coe went on to write Would You Lay With Me In A Field Of Stone and Take This Job And Shove It. There were rumors that Paige died in the Jonestown massacre, but the truth was stranger. He went to Hastings, England where he became a medievalist named Count Edward MacDonald. Forsaking the guitar for the lute, he played at restaurants and medieval festivals. In June 2003, he was arrested for wounding a neighbor with a sword. Jailed for life, he was taken to Ashen Hill medium secure psychiatric hospital in Sussex, England.
