The LP contains several hit singles that Jennings had scored during his first four years at RCA, including "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line." In Europe, RCA added three songs to the album (including Waylon's then-current single, "Singer Of Sad Songs" and the #2 Chuck Berry cover "Brown Eyed Handsome Man"), making the European version slightly superior to the U.S. version. In 1978, RCA reissued this album with upgraded cover art. Five years later, RCA issued an abridged (8-song) budget version. In 1988, RCA reissued the original 10-song album on Compact Disc as RCA 6327-2-R. Although Jennings had attained chart success at RCA, he felt stifled artistically, recalling in the audio version of his autobiography, "I never did feel at home. I didn't know it yet but I was in trouble the minute I got there. I found myself trying to fit in and having people wedge me into places where I didn't work. I was being told over and over, 'You just don't do this' and 'You can't do that. There's a certain way we do things in Nashville. We know what's best for you.'"
