Overview

Triple Feature

The Triple Feature series by Sony Legacy compiles three -- usually well-known -- catalog albums by big-name artists, assembles them in a slipcase box, and sells them at a budget price to consumers. While the reason may be simply a new package in order to clear shelves of excess inventory, this exercise also serves a purpose for collectors and fans filling in holes for a favorite artist. This Willie Nelson volume contains a recording each from the '70s, '80s, and '90s. None of these albums were particularly big hits, but they all contain quality tunes. Sound in Your Mind was recorded in 1976 near the end of the outlaw era -- it contains a number of Nelson performance classics, such as his readings of "That Lucky Old Sun," Lefty Frizzell's "If You've Got the Money (I've Got the Time)," and a medley of "Funny How Times Slips Away," "Crazy," and "Night Life." Somewhere Over the Rainbow was issued in 1981 as a follow-up to his smash Stardust set, and is comprised of more readings of standards. It may not quite measure up to the earlier album, but it nonetheless features Nelson in fine form in an excellent program of material. Finally, 1993's Across the Borderline, recorded at the height of his tax problems, contains readings of more contemporary tunes like the title track and Paul Simon's "Graceland," as well as some excellent self-penned songs. The overall quality of the material and presentation is a little uneven, but there's plenty here to make this worthwhile. The price tag on the Triple Feature series is so cheap that it's almost impossible not to pick it up if only for material you don't already have.
