12 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Country legend Waylon Jennings died in 2002. At the time, he'd been working on these recordings at his home studio with his friend and producer/bassist Robby Turner. After Jennings' passing, his family didn't want to be seen as cashing in; they waited 10 years before giving approval for this release. Members of Jennings' band, The Waylors—Reggie Young, Richie Albright, and Tony Joe White—were brought in to complete the tracks. White provides the title track, and longtime friend and co-conspirator Willie Nelson has his "Sad Songs & Waltzes" given a final look. Jennings is in strong voice on these tracks, and Turner stays true to the best Jennings country sound, neither overglossing nor leaving the tracks bare. As Jennings' final recordings, these will stand comfortably alongside his vast and deservedly respected catalog. The deluxe version adds three unvarnished acoustic takes that let listeners hear Jennings without overdubs.
