In my opinion, this one of Waylon's best albums.
R. Orris
For me, Waylon had a few lame albums, always a good cut here and there and alot of fillers, his MCA albums were that.

If you want more of Waylon's music than just the big RCA hits, this is a great album to listen to.

This is one of my favorite Waylon Jennings albums and probably the one I listen to the most often. When Waylon recorded this, he wasn't a "superstar" anymore, but they hadn't carved his face up on Mount Rushmore yet, so he was free to just sit down and record some great country songs. There is a lot of wisdom in some of these tunes, like "Where Corn Don't Grow", "Reno and Me", and "Too Close to Call", and also some damn good country picking. The title track shows that Waylon could still rock, too. The radio hit from this album was "Wrong". (I can't remember if it was actually a hit, but it was the last "new" Waylon song I remember hearing on the radio -- pretty soon afterwards, Garth Brooks came along, and country music was banned from country radio).

I was extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to see WAYLON perform live - experiencing 4 shows at 3 different venues at the tail end of the 1980s and the very early 1990s. I grew up on all of the famous Rock acts of the '70s, replete with strobe lights, smoke machines, rear-screen projection, laser and light shows. WAYLON just standing on a simple stage with his band BEAT 'EM ALL!! Here was the definition of an "entertainer." He was the funniest AND most charismatic performer I ever saw in a spotlight! I used to tell people, "Even if you don't like his music, GO SEE WAYLON! You'll be glad you did because it's two shows in one." His between-song patter was always funny, but never the same. Except that he DID remind EVERY audience that he didn't like LUCKENBACH, TEXAS and he was playing it only because we wanted to hear it. What a guy!

The songs on THE EAGLE remind me of that time and those shows because WAYLON was featuring a few of them in his stage act back then. WAYLON's favorite Waylon album was DREAMING MY DREAMS. But I think this collection will also stand the test of time for several reasons:

WAYLON had beaten his drug habit; he had been clean for quite awhile when these tracks were recorded, and his baritone singing sounds so rich and expressive. It seems to me that there was more attention to the production values on this offering, with the interplay between various instruments more painstakingly arranged than usual. And the set has a nice balance of songs. There are the expected honky-tonk toughies like WORKIN' CHEAP and THE EAGLE. I possess too much disappointment in my countrymen and not nearly enough political naivete to accept the latter as the American anthem it was intended to be.

Format: Audio CD
This album, released in 1990, came towards the end of Waylon's career. It was one of the best of his career artistically. It yielded the top five country hit Wrong, a very amusing song about a failed relationship, while the anthemic title track also made the country top twenty.

Although the songs are a mix of different tempos, the lyrics are generally reflective, showing the wisdom that comes with maturity. Waylon did not write any of the songs (except for a co-credit on Waking up with you) but clearly chose songs that he could in some way relate to.

Working cheap is a great up-tempo song to open the set. There are a couple of great mid-tempo songs (Where corn don't grow, Reno and me) and several great ballads including the closing track, Old church hymns and nursery rhymes, from the songbook of Beth Nielsen Chapman.

Waylon recorded several albums that were more commercially successful but very few that were more entertaining. If you want more of Waylon's music than just the big RCA hits, this is a great album to listen to.

Some may dis-agree and say all of Waylons albums were great. I understand that and won't argue your point. For me, Waylon had a few lame albums, always a good cut here and there and alot of fillers, his MCA albums were that. "Too Dumb for NYC Too Ugly for La" was also a lame album and it came right after this.
This CD, the EAGLE is great from start to finish. It contains Waylon's last huge top 5 hit "Wrong" (also a great video of the song was also made). Waylon beat Travis Tritt in "where corn dont grow" and was actually released as a single but failed to chart. Waylon comes through and writes some of the material (something he didnt do much on his MCA albums of the 80's). This is DEFF a great starter for anyone wanting to build a Waylon collection. His 70's Albums won't disappoint you and neither will this one !

Waylon's first album of the 1990's was "The Eagle", released (appropriately enough) in 1990 on the Epic label. This is a strong set that contains Waylon's last Top Five single, "Wrong", and the title song, which became a Top 20 hit as a sort of unofficial Desert Storm anthem. The cd's real highlights, however, were never released as singles. "Old Chruch Hymns and Nursery Rhymes", penned by the ultra talented Beth Chapman, is a great tune about a man reflecting on his life ("Look how far I had to come/ to get back where I started from"). Also fine are "Her Man", "Reno and Me", "Waking Up With You" and the up tempo "Workin' Cheap". Looking back, this was Waylon serving notice that the 90's were going to be his decade, artistically if not commercially. Highly recommended. By the way, this CD has just been re-released by Sony, so look for new ones at good prices on Amazon soon.
