Great

by A customer on 12/15/2010

I have always liked Waylon and this CD does not disappoint. This includes some of the duets he sang with Willie Nelson, and one with Jessi Colter. He was one of the great ones and will be missed. Read More

The pride of Littlefield, Texas, Waylon Jennings was a member of Buddy Holly and the Crickets during the fateful 1959 tour that ended with Holly's death in a plane crash. But by the early 1970s, the ferociously talented and mercurial singer-songwriter had completely erased his early status as a rock-&-roll footnote. Almost singlehandedly inventing the entire genre of outlaw country alongside his friend Willie Nelson, Jennings's '70s and '80s material sounds as fresh on THE ESSENTIAL WAYLON JENNINGS as it did at the time of its release. Country rockers like "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" and gentler ballads like his duet with wife Jessi Colter, "Storms Never Last," showcase both sides of Jennings's career, while "Good Ol' Boys," the theme to the TV series THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, remains probably his best-known song.
Artist Overview
Texan country singer Waylon Jennings was always a bit of a rocker. Early on, he played bass with Buddy Holly, and his first solo records included Beatles covers, highly unusual for a country artist at the time. Jennings was one of the key figures of the outlaw country movement of the 1970s, rejecting the lush countrypolitan sound in favor of a raw, electrified approach that owed more to the Rolling Stones than to Billy Sherrill. With a small band and simple arrangements, Jennings introduced contemporary rock-oriented grooves into his hard-hitting country sound, adding some funky grit to common-man poetics on tunes about the tougher side of life. He inspired a subsequent generation of country iconoclasts, and spurred on contemporaries like Willie Nelson and Tompall Glaser.
