Format: Audio CD
This is my favourite album of all time, bar none. I was already a fan of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson, and to an extent Waylon Jennings, but after buying this album I have grown to appreciate all four of these legends for their incredible contribution to music.

Many of the songs feature each individual singing a verse alternately and then combine for the chorus which works very well with their distinctive voices, giving character to their own lines of the song.

The Outlaw songs such as Silver Stallion, Highwayman, and American Remains are fantasticaly powerful songs and you'll never stop listening to their awesome upbeat version of Big River, which is my favourite song on the album.

The songs are all very catchy and believe me when I say taht every song on this album is good, which is not a very common occurance these days. Some of the songs such as Desperado's Waiting For A Train, and We're All In Your Corner are inspiring and some of the songs, despite being covers are sung to perfection.

I can't say anything bad about this album, or albums, (this is two albums in one afterall), it's pure quality, and it's a classic. Every country fan should have it in their collection.

Considering this collection is actually "Highwayman" & "Highwayman II" in the exact sequence of the origional albums, it can't be beaten for value or price - faultless

This is, without doubt, a classic collection of songs by the real Highwaymen. Every one a gem, every one a personal best performance by four of the Kings of Country.
From old memories like 'Big River' to the plaintive 'Silver Stallion' and to tearjerkers like 'Commited to Parkview' and 'Deportee' the whole collection brings these artists into sharp perspective.
Who could forget their live tours of the UK with this album to revive the memories.

Format: Audio CD
First off it's worth noting that this CD collects all of the tracks from the first two albums by the Highwaymen so you're essentially getting two albums for the price of one. Add to this that Amazon are (at the time of writing) asking a measly £2.98 for it and I'd struggle to think of a reason not to buy this CD.

I'm not a typical country fan and came to this album through a love of Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson's Stardust album. I knew next to nothing of Waylon Jennings or Kris Kristofferson outside of their big hits, however I knew enough to gamble that combining the four of them would probably work out well and my gamble certainly paid off.

This is an excellent album and would serve as an excellent gateway into some of the great music that the country genre has to offer for those who wouldn't normally consider themselves fans. At this price you'd be a fool not to give it a try.

Better get this out of the way first. I'm not a fan of Country Music though I am a recent fan of Johnny Cash (an artist I consider to transcend the boundaries of genre) hence my buying this CD.

Super-groups have a tendency to be less than the sum of their individual parts for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it's simply a mismatch. Sometimes the individuals concerned are trying to avoid standing on each others toes and the result lacks any edge. In this case it's a bunch of strong-willed but old buddies who know each other well and the result is a very polite recording, though they are clearly having fun. Each member sings a line or a verse in turn and then they harmonise on the chorus. The musicianship (don't know who played what or what sidemen were employed as there are no details provided on the minimalist inlay) is precise, skilled and tasteful, often moving from Country to Country-Rock.

The two best songs are the 1st and 10th which opened the respective original albums. Not being a country fan, I've no idea if any songs are standards (apart from Cash's Big River) or original to the albums or somewhere in between, but they're largely enjoyable with good hooks. The vocals are all strong and impeccable -you wouldn't expect anything else- and the harmonies are more rough and vigorous but still good and no-one ever expected them to be Crosby Stils & Nash anyway.

The result, an enjoyable accessible CD that's well worth having -a steal at Amazon's current price- but does nothing much to convert me to Country.

Four great artists who share their love of music. Each has their own distinct sound but harmonise as they were one. If you like any one of the artists as an individual this is a must to add to your collection. You won't be disapointed.
