Jonboy Langford and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts: Misery Loves Company [Scout, 1995]
"explore the dark and lonely world of Johnny Cash" with more cojones than Rick Rubin ("Cocaine Blues," "What Is Truth?") **

The Pine Valley Cosmonauts: Salute the Majesty of Bob Wills [Bloodshot, 1998]
"Across the Alley from the Alamo" Choice Cuts

Kelly Hogan & the Pine Valley Cosmonauts: Beneath the Country Underdog [Bloodshot, 2000] Neither

Jonboy Langford and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts: The Executioner's Last Songs Volumes 2 & 3 [Bloodshot, 2003]
More songs about transgression and death--two CDs' worth, actually (Jon Langford With Sally Timms, "Delilah"; Skid Marks With Sally Timms, "Homicide"; Otis Clay, "Banks of the Ohio") [unknown]

Stranger in My Land [Bloodshot, 2013]
Jon Langford and friends bring Aboriginal "Black Elvis" to Oakland to cherry-pick conscious country songs bogged down in more protest-music mawk than anyone admits ("Took the Children Away," "Steets of Tamworth") *
