The Essential Highwaymen

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Legacy's 2010 collection The Essential Highwaymen doesn't merely cover recordings made by the supergroup of Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson, it rounds up selections from their solo albums of the '70s, '80s, '90s, and 2000s. Specifically, these selections are written by other members of the group, so the net effect is a generous 36-track collection of Highwaymen highlights in all forms, drawing a more detailed portrait of their crossed paths than any individual album by the supergroup.
