Nashville is supposedly the focal point of the country music business, and at least part of the purpose of the original album in 1976 was to show, at a time when Nashville was becoming formulaic, that there was another way of doing things. There is no doubt that the album was influential - but seemingly not on the Nashville establishment.

The actual music here is, of course, superb, and the eleven extra tracks that were not on the original album reinforce it. Many of these tracks have also appeared on albums or compilations by the individuals involved, but it's great to have them here as one entity. The album also reminds me that I have neglected Tompall Glaser for far too long, and I'll rectify that. I realize, of course, that his two tracks here (especially Put another log on the fire) are not typical, but his mere presence here is sufficient reminder to me. As for Put another log on the fire, it's a joke that even feminists can enjoy because of the chorus line (Come and tell me why you're leaving me).

Mostly, however, this album is about the other three singers who were in top form when they recorded these tracks. It's just a shame that Nashville was able to brush the Outlaw movement aside and carry on as before.

For a person who appreciates country music, this album is a must. The sound quality is superb, buy this album today as it is fast becoming scarce.

Country Music has a reputation of being old school, often stuck in the past.
Wanted The Outlaws was an attempt to bring some freshness to the proceedings and basically it has been successful.
Good songs include My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys, Honky Tonk Heroes and the Elvis standard, Suspicious Minds.
Although my copy only runs for 34 minutes, with the remastered additional songs, this must be good value for money.
Thanks Waylon, Willie, Jessi and Tompall.

I bought this when it first came out in vinyl and then lost it during a marriage break up - poetic. I just purchased this and it brings back the feel of the times when these guys really were the outlaws of their time in the country arena. A great album, worth every penny.

What a fantastic album containing five great country and western artists. One could say that they were the cream of the crop.

Iconic record - must have. It did revolutionise country music - or at least point some of it in a different way.
