Take everything you know about Waylon Jennings and his music and disregard it before you listen to this CD. This is great music, but it's not the "Outlaw Waylon" we came to know and love in the 1970's: This is the "Nashville Sound" Waylon from the 1960's, 1967 to be exact. This is also classic Chet Atkins production from that era. As you journey through the tracks on this CD from "Money Cannot Make The Man" to "Walk On Out Of My Mind", you hear songs that tell of the heartaches of lost love ("Two Streaks Of Steel"), the story of a man in prison ("The Road"), and even a re-make of "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away"... Yes the Beatles'classic song, and just as the liner notes in the CD cover say, Waylon did such a good job on it that he could've easily have written it himself. There is also Waylon's classic version of "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town", and "Young Widdow Brown", in which you can hear the beginnings of what would become the "Waylon Sound". If you're looking for some great music, this is a CD that is well worth the money, and it will also give you a little insight to what Waylon sounded like before the "Outlaw" movement of the 1970's. Take my advice, you won't regret buying this one!

In our rush to file this music and forget it, zealous reviews attempt to label, attempt to stamp, package and place. Is this really the nashville sound everyone claims? Of course we know what it isn't and that is outlaw music, but what it also isn't is a product, something manufactured, a false peg in a square hole. It's simply waylon.

Waylon has sung about lying woman and bottles of whiskey and trucks and bar fights. Here he delves deeper in his soul like I have never heard before on any waylon album. One listen to The Road or Love of the Common People convinces me than Waylon felt these lyrics deeply. The new waylon, at his outlaw best, would not have given a rat's BEE-hind about sounding convincing on a lyric, because he WAS the lyric and had become it, even before he sung it. He was a ramblin' man. He didn't have to convince you of that and so his level of interest in delivering a lyric on those songs were somewhere in between couldn't give a **** and I wish you would say something. Here he convinces you. That's the difference.

Does the nashville sound rear its head? Of course it does. But songs like The Road, The Chokin Kind, You Got to Hid Your Love Away, Love of the Common People, Money Cannot Make the Man, Two Streaks of Steal, rescue the album and become, dare I say, classics and I only wished I could have heard them played live.

This collection of songs is finally one of my favorite waylon albums, rivaled only by Honky Tonk Heros and Waylon Live and any walyon fan would be remiss to miss out on it. I can only imagine what these songs would have been like in the artists mature hands, but sadly, waylon would lay them down. All due, I suppose, to his foolish pride or whatever this era of music meant to him. Thankful we have this album to remind us of them once again.

that were not on the original album are included on this CD -- The Chokin' Kind and Walk On Out Of My Mind. That makes this a desirable addition to anyone's Waylon collection. No, it is not the 'outlaw' sound, but historically it is a part of the progression of Waylon's career.

This is the good old classic Waylon. Love the poetry as well as the telecaster. No one puts it together and makes music feel real like Waylon

Well, I'm not so sure I'd really rate this as a "lost classic" or anything... When this disc was made, RCA was still trying to pitch Waylon as a "folk" artist, and his bluesy side is almost entirely absent amid odd, sometimes stilted arrangements. A few tunes are okay, and the title track (the only song on here that had any chart action) sounds kind of like the funky country-soul that Charlie Rich was doing at the time, over on Smash Records. Basically, though, this was the wrong material and the wrong production style for Waylon -- it's a little interesting, but far from his best.

3.5 stars, if that was possible.
