3.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, April 20 2012
Plain & simple, people are in love with the eighties. Get a raspy voiced guy and fit him with Bob Seger & John Mellencamp sounding songs and you have a....Canadian country artist!? This wouldn't work in US country markets but north of the border Johnny's a huge seller. It's a refreshing CD compared to everything else being released in today's market and worth a buy or download. Nothing horribly groundbreaking or original, but then again, most people like it that way. Perfect for the out on the deck having a BBQ and for the mass of Canadian music fans evidently. Thumbs up for something other than a cookie cutter artist! If Rod Stewart, Seger or Mellencamp released a new CD, people would want… Read more

Sure, lots of rare LP cuts on here, but the sound on this collection is kinda poor. I transferred & restored all of my LPs & singles off vinyl onto CD before these 2 new Classics IV collections came out, and it sounds as good as this. I love "Nobody Loves You But Me", but it is obvious that it is off vinyl...or sure sounds like it anyway. If you can live with the quality, it is worth adding to your collection.

I'm sure they could have put a few more tunes on, or a promo or 2 could have been the icing on the cake. Nonetheless, it took a STUPIDLY long time to get this collection out. I bought the budget releases, and Atmospherics, and the sound quality on this release is by far superior. Classics IV material could still use a good remixing to give it some low end thump, but all the common hiss & harsh sound of other collections is gone from this one. Gotta give 'em 5 for doing this!
