Description
Combining elements ranging from jazz to honky tonk to pop, Country Music Hall of Famer Willie Nelson created a truly original country sound. This remarkable singer, songwriter, and guitarist turned 80 last year, but he's still going strong. With detailed liner notes and photos, this compilation includes "Let's Pretend," "Any Old Arms Won't Do," "Night Life," "Blame It on the Times," "Everything But You," "I Didn't Sleep a Wink," "What a Way to Love," "Is There Something on Your Mind," "December Days," "The Healing Hands of Time," and much more.

"Along with Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, and a handful of other iconoclasts, Willie Nelson has become more or less synonymous with outlaw country…. They often sang of hard living, hard drinking, and hard loving, and they favored relatively raw productions, without the glitzy orchestrations heard on mainstream records by their contemporaries…. Unique as Nelson's singing and songwriting are, he is also a one-of-a-kind guitar player…. Think of the sophisticated playing of Gypsy swing legend Django Reinhardt—an influence acknowledged by Nelson—minus the filigree, distilled to its purest essence…. His instrument of choice has long been his battered 1969 Martin N-20 nylon-string, which he calls Trigger."—Acoustic Guitar
