Editorial Reviews

Waylon is seriously honing his sound on 1967 s Love of the Common People, drawing upon material as far-ranging as the Beatles, Mel Tillis and Tompall Glaser, while 1968 s Hangin On stretches the Jennings-Atkins collaboration to a brilliant breaking point (Waylon even manages to sneak his own band the Waylors in for a few tracks).

This pair of RCA albums, Love of the Common People from 1967 and Hangin' On from 1968, finds Waylon Jennings in an artistic middle-ground between earlier work controlled by RCA staff producers and his later independence. Producer Chet Atkins still keeps the tempos and volume staid, the production clean and the backing choruses smooth, but Jennings pushes on the instrumentation and song choices, and often sings with a huskier, more emotive voice than previously heard. Though the approach has its successes, in many cases it's neither fish nor fowl; neither the carefully manicured sound of Atkins, nor the free-style rock-energized country of Jennings' outlaw period.

Love of the Common People didn't launch any hit singles, though there were several tracks that could have been successful. The B-side title song has a rich history, having been recorded as pop, R&B, reggae and brought to its greatest prominence as synthpop by Paul Young in the 1980s. The lyric of poverty, family, hope and faith is lifted higher and higher by four key modulations and memorable horn stabs. Mel Tillis' "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" would be a worldwide for Kenny Rogers, but here it's misproduced with a sprightly acoustic guitar and cooing female chorus that fail to convey the lyric's heartbreaking desperation. There are many fine album sides, including Jim Glaser's clear-eyed opener "Money Cannot Make the Man," Jennings late-50s composition "Young Widow Brown," and Ted Harris' wounded folk-song, "The Road." Jennings oversings the Beatles' "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" and the saccharine pop chorus on "Don't Waste Your Time" suggests why he had to get out of Chet Atkins' grip.

If you only know Waylon from the late 70s and early 80s, you need to buy this album and check out some of his earlier work! Waylon has a great range. He will always be the original "Outlaw".

My husband has played this old time country music all his life for fairs and rodeos and thought he couldn't ever find this album. Thank you for having it.
