10 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Willie Nelson was already an outlaw country legend by 1978, but Stardust, his best-selling album, made him a household name. Released long before albums of jazz standards were a viable option for artists in other genres, Nelson’s weatherbeaten croon and lyrical acoustic guitar sound right at home on classics like “All of Me,” “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.” Recorded in nine days and produced by Booker T. Jones, Stardust is one of the earliest indications of Nelson’s gift for brilliant reinventions.

Classic Standards

Willie Nelson's gravelly staccato vocal style together with melodic standards make for a lovely album of beautiful music.

All time great album

I remember listening to this as a teenager and enjoying it then. Wonderful songs played by actual musicians with a raw vocal style it is becoming a lost art form. Highly recommend this album to music lovers.
