4.0 out of 5 stars Another Mixed Bag From Willie!, 16 Oct. 2013
This review is from: To All The Girls (Audio CD)
It's amazing how prolific Willie Nelson remains at the age of 80. This, Willie's second album release this year, offers us a mixed bag of covers with a variety of female duet guests.

I'm not sure whether Willie loves to sing with other artists and approaches them or whether the other artists are queueing up for the honour of singing with him, but it seems like there's hardly a singer out there who hasn't worked with him, from rock stars to rap people.

As ever, with such projects, it's something of a mixed bag. The high points for me are "From Here To The Moon And Back" with Dolly Parton, "No Mas Amor" with Alison Krauss, "Somewhere Between" with Loretta Lynn, and "Grandma's Hands" with Mavis Staples. It's the recordings with the 'older' artists that strike a cord with me, those with the younger artists are much more throwaway. I find Carrie Underwood's take on "Always On My Mind" particularly irritating: it's as if she's singing a different song to Willie in places.

It's good on the whole - Willie sounds in top form and the musicians are excellent - but probably one where I'll listen to selected tracks rather than the whole thing!
