Overview

Any 20-song collection of Waylon Jennings would be woefully inadequate and this one is no exception, but that doesn't make it without merit. Jennings' career with RCA was a long one and he recorded dozens of records for the label. This collection focuses on the period between the late '60s through the early '70s but goes somewhat beyond as well. Opening with "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line," you hear Jennings as he was beginning to emerge from the long shadow Nash Vegas producers had cast over him. There are many fine cuts here, including "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way" as well as "Waymore's Blues," "Ladies Love Outlaws," "Amanda," and "Rainy Day Woman." This is an excellent collection that will hold no interest for hardcore fans, but is a fine introduction to the sound Waylon developed into a movement.
