5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and brilliant...
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars An Aquired Taste
Mustn't sound negative actually about this compilation as I have loved listening to it, but it is a tad depressing and very sort of trad Country stuff. Having said that it was a bargain price, and it will get played on long journeys !

5.0 out of 5 stars Daylight Robbery,
Plundering the name of a No 1 group of the Urban Folk Revival the real Highwaymen commented that they could do little about it as the name was not registered to them and the Michael Row The Boat hitmakers were actually defunct at the time
Virtually the same as what had been the Outlaws in the 70s as shown on the album Wanted The Outlaws the Highwaymen actually lasted longer than this short lived movement

2.0 out of 5 stars Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..........,
Having heard, in the past, some good stuff from all 4 artists on this album I fully expected at least a fair smattering of edgy country tinged folk music or Americana. Wow, what a disappointment! Mostly dreary,unexiting versions of previously recorded tracks with almost dirgy, lazy delivery from all participants. My first ever listen to The Highwaymen and I certainly wouldn't bother again, or recommend it for anyone except die-hard fans. Another CD on it's way to the charity shop.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost Highwaymen,
I've always liked these four veterans. They've recorded some magnificent songs and records over the years. This CD has some good songs but most of the songs are forgotten as soon as they are finsihed. Seems it's more to make money for the record company than to pay tribute to these four great artists. The sound is also very flat (not much money spent at the mixing table here) so if you really want to listen to these guys at their best, find the old vinyl recordings and enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible,
This review is from: The Highwayman Collection [Clean] (MP3 Download)
Absolutely rubbish. Cheesy and unpleasant. I like a bit of country and thought these guys would deliver, but they really didn't.
