5.0 out of 5 stars Goin Down Rockin indeed September 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Might be tempting to compare these with Johnny Cash's last recordings. They're both emotional, holding nothing back. But Waylon was for sure goin' down rockin'. This is some hardass country music, and there is for sure nothing like it coming out of Nashville today. Great thing is that Waylon wrote all but one of the songs, so they're very personal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waylon #1 September 27, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is some of the best that Waylon has done in recent years. "A Man Called Hoss" is also a great one. Wish he were still around plugin' out the good tunes. Waylon's music always came from the heart and this one comes from deep down. Yes you can hear a little of the age and poor health in his voice, that voice is still better than most of the other singers out there today. If you're a Waylon fan ( and I know you've heard this about other releases) you must have "Goin' Down Rockin'".

'Ol Hoss can still take the industry by storm from the grave ten years after his passing. There is nothing out there aside from Jamey Johnson that can hold a candle to the power of this music. Still kickin butt on music row Hoss!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rockin' as only Waylon could September 30, 2012
By Buddym
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I last saw Waylon perform at a Casino in LeeLanau Michigan in August a few months before we lost him. He was in good voice and gave us a full show. We stayed for 2 shows and both were great. Very shortly after Waylon took a turn for the worse and the rest we all know.
I had high hopes for this just released CD Goin' Down Rockin'. I had been a follower of Waylon's since 1965 when I first heard his great voice. I had been a DJ in 1959 playing R&R but the move to acid Rock in the late Sixties pushed me over to Country Music and there was Waylon like no one I had ever heard.
For 47 years I have waited for Waylon's releases always with great anticipation. I must say hearing this Cd was about to be released had me wondering about his latter day vocal capacities. But I was worried for nothing this is one of the very best collections of Waylon's music I have ever heard . The backing musicians are obviously people who knew and loved Waylon. They have developed this music as if Waylon was in the room and that shines through the whole project. The Goin' Down Rockin' cut is one of the finest Waylon songs and sounds I have ever heard. So to Waylon Hoss heads everywhere Buy it, you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars any NEW recordings from Waylon is welcomed! September 29, 2012
By </><
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These songs were recorded by Waylon mainly with just an acoustic guitar and bass, after his death, good friend Turner brought in Reggie Young and Waylon's band and finished the tracks. Jessi Colter didnt want to make these available right away as it would look like they were just cashing in on Waylon's death, maybe so, but as a fan, I would have liked to got these in 2002, not a full Decade later! I mean come on!
Waylon's voice is stromng but they sound "airy" as if they were recorded in a open room with just an open mic, which was true. But they did a good job producing these songs as best they could to give them a professional sound to them as if they were actual studio session recodings as per making a new album. The material is very enjoyable and Waylon penned most of these song himself! This is for sure a MUST OWN for any Waylon fan! In a age where most new CD's of Waylon are rip off's and same old material just repackaged, here's a legit new release of ORIGINAL Material! Along with 2007 "Walyon Forever" which was produced by his son Shooter, thats all there has been released for new Studio material.

3.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 - A country legend's farewell studio session October 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Three years before his untimely passing in 2002, Waylon Jennings spent a few days laying down what would be his last studio performances. Recorded in his friend (and steel guitarist) Robbie Turner's home studio, the tapes featured Jennings and his guitar working out new music and revisiting older tunes. Jennings no longer had the full vocal power of his earlier years, but his phrasing, tone and low baritone notes were intact; he sounds physically weakened in spots, but still mentally charged. Shortly after the sessions, Jennings moved back to Phoenix, and the tapes sat unfinished until last year, when Turner gathered select players to add instrumental backings to the performances. The result closely captures the flavor of Jennings' earlier recordings, skillfully weaving the players around Jennings and his guitar into a final mix that feels whole.

By utilizing players who'd worked with Jennings before, Turner was able to craft backings that are sympathetic to the singer and his sound. As with Johnny Cash's American Recordings, there's an unmistakable specter of mortality coloring the songs and performances. The title track is unapologetic, summing up Jennings' last stand with the hook line "if I can't go down rockin', ain't gonna go down at all." There's also a fired-up early run-through of "Never Say Die," which would become the title of Jennings last live set in 2000. Earlier songs take on added poignancy, such as a version of "I Do Believe" that's sung wearily, as if struggling to balance the hear-and-now with a here-after that was closing in. Similarly, "Belle of the Ball" is rendered more wistful and nostalgic here than as originally heard on 1977's Ol' Waylon.
