If I hadn't read the AMG review, the first three songs would have made me think this was a classic. It slows down then and never regains that energy. I know what was the second LP of a two record set was meant to be Stardust Two, but on a single CD it gives the project a schizoid feel. Willie was just starting to slow up after a red hot decade, but Leon Russell was on the way down. This is nothing like the roaring Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour with Joe Cocker, but I am interested enough to sometime check out the Best of Hank Wilson CD he put out.I think 3 stars is about right for this set - 3 1/2 for what was the first LP and 2 1/2 for the second.Was this review helpful?

As a long time Willie fan, this CD is like icing on a favorite cake. Even better than I expected it to be, I can't believe I didn't buy it sooner. So much music, so little time. Buy it you'll like it. I'm in cliche mode this morning but there you have it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
