    Excellent live clip. Paycheck is in superb voice and actually appears sober which was rare for him during this period of his career. Surprisingly his total number of actual hits is rather small considering that he charted records from 1965 until 1989. He only scored ten top ten hits (including a duet with George Jones) and one #1 single. Only once was he able to score three top ten singles back-to-back. “Slide Off Of Your Satin Sheets” [#7 in 1977] began the set followed by “I’m The Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised)” [#8 in 1977] and then his career record “Take This Job And Shove It.” [#1 in 1978]

    His influence and impact on country music was never rewarded with consistent chart success. Personal demons were a constant distraction from his career.
