Nite Life: Greatest Hits and Rare Tracks, 1959-1971

by Willie Nelson


4 New & Used Starting at $3.49


Nite Life: Greatest Hits and Rare Tracks collects material Willie Nelson wrote and recorded while he was trying to launch a career as a professional songwriter during the '60s. At this time, he also made two albums and several singles for Liberty, and many recordings for RCA. These songs, including some rarities, are compiled for this flawless single-disc collection. Nite Life runs through all of the songs other performers had hits with and made standards, including the title track, "Crazy," "Funny How Time Slips Away," and "Hello Walls." Not only does it have the songs that established Nelson's reputation, the disc shows that even early in his career he was creating an eclectic, far-reaching music that never stayed within the boundaries of traditional country.
