20 Great Story Songs contains re-recordings of Jimmy Dean's biggest hits, including "Big Bad John," "I.O.U.," and "To a Sleeping Beauty." Even though these aren't the original hit versions, fans may still be interested in Dean's cover versions of Tom T. Hall's "Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine," Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Morning Coming Down," and "Ringo," originally a hit in 1964 for Bonanza star Lorne Greene. ~ Al Campbell
