#1 HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERon 8 February 2005
Many of the essential tracks from Waylon's time with RCA (1965 to 1985) are here. Despite some success in the sixties, most notably with Only daddy that'll walk the line, it wasn't until the seventies that his career really took off. Waylon had to fight a long battle with his record company to record the kind of music he wanted to record, but whatever misgivings RCA may have had, the results were impressive, both artistically and commercially.
Among the classics here you can find Are you sure Hank done it this way, Good hearted woman, Are you ready for the country, Luckenbach Texas, Mammas don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys, I've always been crazy, Amanda and the theme from the Dukes of Hazzard (a TV series in which Waylon was also narrator). After the seventies gave way to the eighties, Waylon never again had any more number one hits on the country charts with RCA, but he still had some top ten hits including Just to satisfy you - a song that Waylon originally had success with in the sixties but which he revived as a duet with Willie Nelson.
Waylon had some success after he left RCA, most notably Rose in Paradise (included here) and his recordings with Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson, collectively known as the Highwaymen (represented here by the song of that title).
Several compilations of Waylon's music are available, but this is the strongest single CD. Nevertheless, you might wish to compare this with the double CD (RCA country legends) which has many more Waylon classics than you will find here although it doesn't contain Just to satisfy you, Rose in Paradise or Highwaymen.

You could not find a better way to spend your seven quid than this album. Be sure to play it in your car. When you get out of work. On a Friday night. For a 3 day weekend.
Music made to be alive to.

One of the best country singers, sadly missed, if you like Waylon Jennings, check out the Highwaymen.
