Top Customer Reviews
The big hit here is, of course, Luckenbach Texas. The other songs include covers of Lucille (Kenny Rogers), Sweet Caroline (Neil Diamond), Till I gain control again (a Rodney Crowell song that has also been recorded by Emmylou Harris and Crystal Gayle among others) and the Elvis medley. Note that Waylon later recorded a cover of Lucille (Little Richard) - this sometimes confuses people. I suspect that Waylon is the only singer ever to record covers of both Lucille songs.
Apart from the songs already mentioned, there are several other great songs including If you see me getting smaller, I think I'm gonna kill myself, Belle of the ball, Brand new goodbye song and This is getting funny.
Overall, this is a great album that every Waylon fan should have. It may not be the place to begin a Waylon collection (I recommend the double-CD RCA Country legends for starters) but anybody collecting Waylon's original albums should have this high on their priority list.
