Overview

Waylon Jennings's 1976 live album, Waylon Live, is a certifiable outlaw classic, and this expanded, double-disc set adds 22 previously unreleased tracks, compounding the goodness multifold. Recorded over three nights in September 1974 at venues in Dallas and Austin, Waylon Live captured Jennings and his formidable band of Waylors at an absolute peak of musicianship and attitude, spitting out white-hot shards of hard country, rock 'n' roll, blues, and folk -- from ballads to good-time frolics to barn burners -- at an obviously appreciative and rowdy audience. Waylon wears his heart on his sleeve in the opener, a rousing take on the Jimmie Rodgers classic "T for Texas (Blue Yodel No. 1)," paying dutiful homage to a venerated pioneer before sailing off into the ether. The original album included such now-classic tunes as "Amanda," "Lonesome, On'ry and Mean," "Good Hearted Woman," and three gems from the brilliant 1973 album, Honky Tonk Heroes. The new tracks pay respect to recent songs by fellow outlaws Kris Kristofferson (via four tunes), Billy Joe Shaver, and, of course, Willie Nelson. Other additions include a leering version of "Ladies Love Outlaws"; an ominous, majestic reading of Waylon's own manifesto, "Just to Satisfy You"; and two heartfelt nods to the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills, a celebratory reading of Wills's "Big Ball in Cowtown" and Waylon's self-penned, loping tribute to "a guy who did as much for our kind of music as anybody," in "Bob Wills Is Still the King," which also serves as a love note to Texas. Always essential, Waylon Live, with its added ballast, now becomes an indispensable part of any serious country collection.
