Overview

With every country artist under the sun now laying claim to classic American pop territory, perhaps it's useful to point out that it was Willie Nelson who kicked this trend into high gear way back in 1978 with the Booker T. Jones -- produced Stardust. Twenty one years later, these bedraggled, lovingly arranged takes on Irving Berlin ("Blue Skies"), Hoagy Carmichael ("Stardust"), the Gerswhins ("Someone to Watch Over Me"), and other great tunesmiths still sound riveting and fresh. Bonus tracks here include a typically idiosyncratic version of "I Can See Clearly Now" and a heart-tugging caressing of "Scarlet Ribbons" that holds its own with Harry Belafonte's definitive version.
