5.0 out of 5 stars Quality country - just a good ole boy, 8 May 2014

This review is from: The Essential (MP3 Download)
Waylon Jennings was a very successful country music star in the US who has never actually featured in the UK charts.
Many UK people will have heard however of at least one Waylon Jennings track, this being the theme tune to the 1980's TV series "The Dukes Of Hazard", and many people quite like this as TV theme.

I came to hear Waylon's music via my discovery of Johnny Cash and also from The Highwaymen group and DVD. I was impressed by his performances with The Highwaymen in particular from the DVD of a concert performed by the group in 1990. Most recently for the duet of "I'm Movin' On" on the recent successful, Johnny Cash release "Out Among The Stars".

So "The Essential Waylon Jennings" has allowed my to discover some "new but old" music. I have to say I am impressed.
I'm also surprised that Waylon wasn't more successful as country / pop cross over artist with more international success.

The songs a mixture of ballads and mid-tempo tracks are often seductive and Waylon's voice has that classic Southern drawl to it that fans of the likes of Elvis and Johnny Cash will recognise. Songs like "Amanda" are beautiful. "Are sure Hank did it this way", is a nod against the more traditional "Nashville" country style which sometimes can be termed as being "corny". Waylon doesn't appear to have fallen into this trap.

If you like the style of country performed by the likes of Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and Elvis (when in country mode), you will like Waylon Jennings.

I can safely say Waylon is the only artist I have ever bought who has never appeared in the UK singles or album charts, but I'm sure this collection will be played quite regularly.

Try it yourself I am sure you will enjoy it.
