After listening to Disc 2 a few times I’ve come to the conclusion that this selection was hand-picked by none other than super pimp Nudie Cohn.  He’s the feller in the picture here perched atop the firearm-adorned Caddy convertible wearing the sequin-slathered suit jacket.  You see, Nudie is the legend in country western apparel design.  He built by hand hundreds, maybe thousands, of suits for the cream of Country’s crop through the 50s, 60s, and 70s.  And he was a one-of-a-kind car customizer.  That Cadillac in the picture was Cowboy-Uped by Nudie himself.  Yes, he was an all around rhinestone badass.  I mean if you can make Elvis shine like this you must have a terrifying set of cajones:

Elvis’ $10,000 Gold Nudie Suit

Now what leads me to believe that Nudie hand-picked the songs in this album is that Porter Wagoner is featured 3 times on this disc alone.  If you search images of Porter Wagoner on the internet it is nearly impossible to find a pic of him not draped in a Nudie original.  It just doesn’t happen.  Now, what I’m thinking is this:  Nudie passed away in 1983.  This happens to be the same year that the original pressing of this album was released.  There is a 99% chance that Nudie put Porter Wagoner on here in full effect to keep the Nudie legend alive in song through Porter.  That is so clever, Sir Nudie.  Clever til the very end.

Hello, I’m Porter Wagoner. Do you like my Nudie?
