This is a CD I've been listening to for the last 20 years and I've never gotten tired of it. It's more mellow pop than it is country. Willie's voice is clear as a bell and the quality of the recording is amazing -- crisp and sharp with every instrument defined and audible.

"Always on My Mind" is, of course, one of the best known love songs of the 20th century. Almost as good are two other songs on the CD: "Old Fords and Natural Stone" and a song with a clever hook, "The last thing I needed the first thing this morning (was to have you walk out on me)." Most of the other songs are covers Willie performs adequately, if not with inspiration. But the three great songs on this CD put it in the must-have category.

Willie Nelson recorded this album during the early eighties... 1982. During that time Poppy, disco type of music was all the rage. And country was being influenced by that turn in taste.
Think of Dolly Parton's 9 to 5.
Well, Willie... the consummate outlaw recorded this album in the face of all that was going on. He was not afraid to try that style of music but did not compromise his country roots. This album has a Pop feel to it... but is unmistakably country.
The title track is a Nelson classic. It was the song of the year in 1982 and 1983 for the Country Music Association awards. I can remember how this tune dominated both country radio and pop radio when I was a kid. There is no doubt it struck a chord with all types of people. Willie's choice of this song was inspired genius.
It was originally an Elvis tune. He recorded it as a lament to his wife Pricilla. And he always thought it was too personal for anyone else to hear. Willie turns it into an anthem of regret, but with a glimmer of hope. His vocals are powerful and heartfelt as always.
This particular album is filled with a wide array of material. The Aretha Franklin hit, "Do right woman, Do right man."
The Simon and Garfunkle standard, "Bridge over Troubled Water."
The Everly Brothers, "Let it Be Me."
And some great Willie originals like, "The Party's Over." And, "The Last Thing I Needed, First Thing this Morning."
Willie Nelson is a true original... when he sings a song there is no mistaking him.
This is a very underrated album. I have enjoyed it quite a bit so far... give it a try. I bet you will too. :-)

This is a great album! I just listened to it for the first time. You can infer from the track list that it is pop done up Willie style, but that is not a bad thing. They are all good songs, and this reissue has two bonus tracks that are also excellent. I've seen reviews of this that say it's one of his weaker efforts, but I disagree. (Glad I didn't listen to them!) The arrangements have variety, and are always tasteful and not overdone. The musical details are interesting. Another plus is the backing vocal by Toni Wine (of girl group fame) on "Permanently Lonely." If you like pop with great tunes and a sincere heartfelt message, you will love this CD.

It is great to see this album re-mastered, now with two extra tracks (The man who owns everyone, I'm a memory). My review is based on the original album - however, my experience of other re-masters (including Willie's Stardust album) is that the sound quality will be better and the new tracks are likely to be of a high quality.
The title track was written for Elvis Presley to record, though Brenda Lee recorded it first - about six months before Elvis. Exactly why Willie chose to record this particular song is a mystery to me, but he certainly made a good choice. It became one of his trademark recordings, becoming a huge American pop hit for him. Sadly, this success was not repeated in the UK, where the version by the Pet Shop Boys went all the way to number one. Nevertheless, Willie's version helped to establish his fan base in the UK.
Aside from the title track, there are covers of songs made famous by Aretha Franklin (Do right woman), Procol Harum (Whiter shade of pale - with Waylon), Everly brothers (Let it be me) and Simon and Garfunkel (Bridge over troubled water).
Willie wrote some of the other songs though in some cases they are re-recordings - Permanently lonely and The party's over both date back to the sixties, when Willie recorded them for RCA. I believe Old fords and a natural stone and Last thing I needed first thing this morning were new for this album. I'm not sure about Staring each other down.
So, when this album was released, very few of the songs were new but several were obscure and all were transformed by Willie, whose covers never sound like the originals or any other versions.
This is one of Willie's best original albums.

I'm not a big Willie Nelson fan and bought this CD for "Always on my mind". Well I totally fell in love with this CD! I play it all the time. I really never notice what a wonderful voice he has. Now I am a fan and glad I did buy it.

There is no better melancholy country voice than Willie Nelson. Willie's songs are genius. His guitar picking expressive beyond adequate description. He phrases half a beat behind the lead. Incredible technique.
Always On My Mind from Willie is what love is all about. Whiter Shade of Pale from Willie brings tears to my eyes every time. To paraphrase Willie: Those sad songs, slow hurtin songs are better when Willie sings them than any other vocalist that's ever tried to express them. NOBODY comes close to Willie Nelson
