4.0 out of 5 stars It's a soundtrack! It's a live set! It's both! September 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is certainly one of the more unusual items in Nelson's storied album catalog. Nominally a soundtrack to the 1980 film in which Nelson starred, this is actually a live set of Nelson and several friends. Recorded in front of an enthusiastic (but polite) audience, it provides Nelson a chance to revisit many of his chestnuts ("On the Road Again" "Pick Up the Tempo" "Bloody Mary Morning" "Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground") and several songs closely associated with him ("Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" "Whiskey River"). Nelson and his band are loose and energized by each other and the crowd, taking well-known songs in new directions. The mood is that of a bunch of talented musicians passing around the guitar, rather than a formal, orchestrated concert.
In addition to Nelson's fine performances, the disc features excellent work from one time Texas Playboy fiddler Johnny Gimble (his "Fiddlin' Around" swings effortlessly), as well as Nelson's guitarist Jody Payne singing a harmonica-fueled version of Merle Haggard's "Working Man Blues." Also in attendance (and lured out of the audience) is famed Nashville songwriter Hank Cochran who sings his own "I Don't Do Windows" and "Make the World Go Away." Emmylou Harris performs a magnificent star-turn on Nelson and Cochran's "So You Think You're a Cowboy" and duets beautifully with Nelson on Rodney Crowell's "Angel Eyes."
Actress Dyan Cannon duets with Nelson on both "Loving You Was Easier (Than Anything I'll Ever Do Again)" and "Uncloudy Day," and flies solo for Nelson's "Two Sides of Every Story." No one would mistake her for a top-notch country singer (at times she over-emotes like Nancy Sinatra, at other times she sounds like Mary Kay Place), but she acquits herself reasonably well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Willie in a Great Collection March 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This selection of just-perfect Willie Nelson songs comes from a largely forgettable but very enjoyable (to me, anyway) film from the 80s that starred Willie Nelson playing a country music superstar (hmmmmm, I wonder who thought of that casting?). We see him in concert singing some of his quintessential classics along with some newer material as he begins a clandestine affair with his last-minute backup singer (played by a young and glowing Amy Irving, but that's another review altogether).
The songs loosely follow the plot of the movie, which is why I mentioned the movie at all--and they are just absolutely perfect. What can one say about Willie Nelson in a review that hasn't already been said, except to say that this very fine collection is, in my opinion, a must-have, soundtrack or not.
I don't know where "Honeysuckle Rose" ranks on the Willie Nelson best-seller list, but I can say that it ranks in my own top 5. If I want Willie in all his glory, I turn to this CD. I urge others to give it a try as well.

It's hard to believe that the movie "Honeysuckle Rose" came out in 1980--man! that's over 30 years ago.This 2-album set is music from the original soundtrack.It of course stars Willie;but it also includes some of his friends and musicians who were at the height of their careers;and some of them are still "on the road" today.
This is a great selection of Willie's music and unlike most of his recordings,it has the feel of having been recorded on the bus,or just hanging around the movie set or motel,or a smll bar.There are a lot of rough edges,all kinds of cheering,shouting,etc.,which makes it seem like you are right there with them all;engoying them making their music.Most of the songs are popular Willie tunes;but there are some others that are quite different.
Willie sings 10 of the songs alone;but there are also several where he is accompained with other great artists such as Dyan Cannon,Amy Irving,Emmylou Harris.Others such as Johnny Gimble,Jody Payne,Hank Cochran,Kenneth Treadgill,Amy Irving Emmylou Harris and Dyan Cannon sing songs alone.Then ,there's even a duet with other legend country singers,Hank Cochran and Jeannie Seely.
Even if you have several Willie Nelson collections,but you don't have this one;you will find it a great addition to your collection.
Another thing that makes this vinyl ,2-album set a real treasure is the album cover.It has 46 wonderful colored photographs of the actors and stars from the movie .Then, to complete the "package", there is a great painting on the cover of Dyan Carrol,Willie and Amy Irving,that should be called "On The Road Again".

This is a great CD by Willie Nelson and family. After watching the movie I had to have the CD. Willie always sounds great on anything he does and would recommend it to anyone who loves Willie Nelson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Example of Willie Live December 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The late 80's brought a change to country music. In my opinion, country music was turned into wimpy rock, with cutesy funny clever lyrics, like the one about where the guy's wife took the keys to his truck but she forgot about his John Deere. Or "Welcome to Earth, Third Rock from the Sun." And who can ever forget, "What Part of No Don't You Understand."

When I was a kid, my dad played Willie Nelson a lot. One album I vaguely remembered was the soundtrack to "Honeysuckle Rose." While it isn't the greatest movie, I remember thinking that it was a great vehicle to show Willie playing live.

I just recently bought this CD and after several listens believe that this is what great country music sounds like live. Very much like a rock show, the energy level is greater than what one would expect from country like "The Grand Ole Opery" or "Hee Haw."

It's not only Willie Nelson, either. There's a great version of "I Don't Do Windows" on here, and the fiddle playing on "Fiddlin' Around" is great. The lyrics are simple, like any simple rock song, but they serve as a nice compliment to the fiddle solos.

Totally recommended for the fans of "Outlaw" country.
