5.0 out of 5 stars Another Jennings high-spot 12 Sep 2008
By paulh01
Format:Audio CD
A super-budget-line reissue alongside Jennings' peerless "Only the Greatest". For a cheapie "Strategic Marketing Group" release the sound transfers are excellent, the original sleeve art nicely reproduced -- but a pity there are no liner notes putting the material in context. A small gripe maybe since you'd have to look at a big pricey Bear Family box set to find session details -- and even then you'd have the tracks scattered about in session order. Here are the original albums and great to have in all their 29 minute glory -- who needs twofers and bonus tracks at this price. "Singer of Sad Songs" ought to be next up in a perfect world (and a perfect reissue program -- fingers crossed).

On this 1971 album Waylon managed to preview his outlaw stance even within the confines of his existing relationship with RCA. This is more gritty than Ramblin' Man. The sound on this release is very good and the various players are supporting Waylon's vocal performance with tremendous skill. You can feel that Lonesome, On'ry and Mean was just around the corner.
I know the Johnny Cash versions of Sunday Morning Coming Down and Legend in my Time (from the American V album) and Waylon doesn't reach that level of intensity here. But 4 stars are clearly merited by this release.

Another great CD from a great ciountry and western artist. This singer/songwriter is one of the best country artists that I have heard.

I preferred Waylon in his folkier style and this is the proof of how good he was. Excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Waylon The Taker/Tulsa 20 Mar 2008
By C. H. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this so I could have a copy of Lovin' Her Was Easier without the audience applause that's on the Waylon Live-Expanded Edition version. Surprise, Waylon's voice is more mellow on this version, not the rough edge baritone I expected. It's still good, just different from the concert version. For me, the real gem on this CD is Grey Eyes You Know. Waylon's voice is outstanding on this one. The plaintive tone at the end is so realistic you'd think he's actually standing next to "this mound of clay" on the day he's had to bury his lifelong love. Why was this omitted from the Waylon Sings Love Songs collection?

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF WAYLON'S BEST 13 Sep 2010
By Hinch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I grew up on Elvis, The Beatles and mostly 60s rock. Other than Hank Williams, I didn't care much for country music.
Not only is THE TAKER/TULSA the first album I bought by Waylon Jennings, it's also the first country album I ever bought. When I heard "Mississippi Woman" on the radio, I became an instant Waylon fan. His strong voice is what amazed me. I still have the original vinyl copy I bought when it was released in February 1971. I was also fortunate enough, that same year, to see him in concert for the first of many times throughout his career.
I can't say there's one song I like better than the others, because every song is great. Of course 4 or the songs, including "The Taker", were written by Kris Kristofferson.
In 1972 Waylon would release the albums GOOD HEARTED WOMAN and LADIES LOVE OUTLAWS which along with LONESOME ON'RY AND MEAN, released in 1973, would establish him as the leader of the so called outlaw country movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars an overlooked classic 7 Jan 2013
By Anaximander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Waylon released this album in 1971, right before his best so-called "outlaw" albums were recorded. It is less stripped down than those albums and Waylon's grit is smoothed out a bit. As a result, many exploring Waylon's prime recordings miss this one. But it is a stone cold classic. All the songs are great, but Waylon's versions of the Taker, Mississippi Woman, Lovin' Her Was Easier and Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down are brillant. The best $5 I've spent on music in along time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prompt and great service 25 Feb 2011
By K C 5 J K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Waylon's repertoire sure spanned a wide gammut that's hard to categorize or pigeonhole, but let me climb out on a limb here. I say that the darkest song he ever recorded, probably made during his times with some drugs, was "Memories of You And I" (on 'From The Ramblin' Man'). I never tire of it.
Now the angriest one of them all might be on this album. "Don't Let The Sun Set On You In Tulsa" is an overlooked 70s hit featuring the greatest steel picker of all time, Ralph Mooney. If nothing else done on this album was worth a hoot, "Tulsa" is all it needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Waylon does not disapoint. 14 Jun 2013
By Robert Driskell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been catching up on Waylon Jennings for the past few months. I had heard all his hits, but never really listened to much of his other music. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised, and impressed, with the music I am hearing from him. Whether it be his early recordings or anything else throughout his long musical career, you can rest assured that you will not be shortchanged when you buy Waylon's music. I only wish I had appreciated his talent while he was still with us.
