Product Description

This new 4-CD, 92-track overview captures the "straight" and "outlaw" sides of this once-in-a-generation talent, his first career-spanning boxed set! His early, Buddy Holly-produced single, Jole Blon , kicks things off, and then it's off to Nashville and superstardom with such tracks as I'm a Ramblin' Man; Dreaming My Dreams with You; Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love); Good Hearted Woman (with Willie Nelson); I've Always Been Crazy; Suspicious Minds (with Jessi Colter); Highwayman , and more, even an unreleased 1978 duet with Johnny Cash. A lavish book includes unseen photos and memorabilia. Definitive!

Amazon.com

Though the late Waylon Jennings has had numerous greatest-hits compilations, this four-disc box that encompasses almost half a century of music making is his first comprehensive, career-spanning anthology. While the 1970s and early '80s were plainly Jennings's commercial and creative heyday--when the Outlaw movement christened by his recording of "Ladies Love Outlaws" was in full swagger--highlights here extend from his 1958 revival of the Cajun classic "Jolie Blon" (produced by Jennings's mentor Buddy Holly) through his swan-song recordings with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson as the Highwaymen. The trademark lope of Jennings's music and his penchant for self-mythologizing material give him a strong signature sound, but the anthology shows just how much musical territory he covered--from his folkish reading of Gordon Lightfoot's "(That's What You Get) For Lovin' Me" and his bluesy transformation of Little Richard's "Lucille" through his dips into the songbooks of Neil Young ("Are You Ready for the Country"), Jimmy Webb ("MacArthur Park"), and Los Lobos ("Will the Wolf Survive?"). The 140-page booklet provides thorough credits and annotation, as well as an abundance of photos of Waylon with friends, fellow musicians, and every famous person he ever met (from Muhammad Ali to Metallica's James Hetfield). --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's a 4-CD set that's worthy of its subject October 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Going toe-to-toe with the monolithic, authoritative import box sets on the Bear Family label, Sony-BMG has finally given American country fans a comprehensive, thoroughly satisfying -- and affordable! -- overview of Waylon Jennings' entire career. From his early years singing in bars in the Southwest through his entry into (and swift departure from) the Nashville establishment, on into his "outlaw" golden years, this captures Waylon at his best.

Disc One, which concentrates on Jennings' early years as a 1960s "folk-country" singer in Nashville, probably has the most to offer fans who are already familiar with his big, rowdy hits of the '70s and early '80s. Although the folk-oriented material isn't as rugged or meaty as his later work, there are some soulful performances and unusual arrangements and production touches that may surprise even longtime fans. The disc is well-chosen and nicely paced, and packed with plenty of non-hit material that may be unfamiliar even to devoted Waylon fans. Discs Two and Three comprehensively document his glory years, all those fearless, funny, sad, soulful hits that stand at the very core of the outlaw/alternative country canon. Yeah, there are some songs left out, but not many, and all the major touchstones are included. The last disc skims his work in the 1980s and '90s, with the added bonus that his work for the rival MCA label is also sampled, making room for some of his later hits and one-off material.

There are a lot of good Waylon best-of collections on the market today, but this really blows most of them away. We could all think of some additional songs we'd like to see on here as well, but for anyone who just wants to get a really, really good introduction to Waylon's work, this collection oughtta do it for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waylon Done It His Way October 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Waylon Jennings had one of the quintessential country music voices, a deep baritone audibly imbued with the hardscrabble upbringing of a child of itinerant farmhands who grew up to become a hard-headed, hard-boiled singer of songs on his own terms.

Jennings embodied the "outlaw" movement that reinvigorated country music in the 1970s. But his music career stretched back to the beginnings of rock-n-roll, when he was a disc jockey in Lubbock, Texas, who befriended rock pioneer Buddy Holly. Holly produced his first recording, a strange cover of the Cajun tune, "Jole Blon" that featured King Curtis on doo-wop saxophone. That single flopped, but Jennings was assured of being at least a footnote in the music history books even if he never recorded again:

After breaking up his band, the Crickets, Holly recruited Jennings to play electric bass with him on the "Winter Dance Party Tour" of 1959. When the heater on the tour bus stopped working, Holly chartered a plane for himself and his band to fly from a show in Clear Lake, Iowa, to the next night's performance in Moorhead, Minnesota. But Jennings gave up his seat on the plane to J. P. Richardson, aka "the Big Bopper," because Richardson had come down with the flu. Just before the plane took off, Holly joked to Jennings, "Well, I hope your old tour bus freezes up." Jennings good naturedly replied, "I hope your darn ol' plane crashes!"

And that's just what happened on February 3, 1959, "the day the music died." His final words to his good friend would haunt Waylon Jennings for years, and that eerie feeling that he was supposed to have been on the doomed plane would trouble him for the rest of his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 4-CD encapsulation of Jennings' career November 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Jennings catalog has seen its share of reissues, in both original albums and anthologies, but never before has a box set captured the full story of his career. Reissues of original albums have told Jennings' story in bits and pieces, single-disc anthologies have cherry-picked the chart highlights, and Bear Family's import box sets "Destiny's Child" and "Six Strings Away" have laboriously cataloged the details of his pre-outlaw career. But with the release of this beautifully produced 4-CD collection, RCA provides both depth and breadth, essaying Jennings transition from a protégé of Buddy Holly to purveyor of folk- and country-rock hybrids to increasingly uncomfortable Nashville cat to rebel immortality and self-direction. Jennings' transformation is highly personal yet shared out loud with his audience; and especially visceral when condensed from thirty-seven years of individual albums to a four-disc box-set.

The earliest side here, one of three cut under the direction of Holly in 1958, is a version of the Cajun classic "Jole Blon" featuring a '50s-styled sax and a waltz-time saunter. The collection's second track, "My Baby Walks All Over Me," dates to Jennings' initial early '60s residency in Arizona, with Ray Corbin's twangy lead guitar retaining the sort of energy laid down by James Burton on early tracks by Ricky Nelson. Next, the set jump-cuts to Jennings mid-60s beginnings at RCA where the sound was more polished (and in stereo), the jumpier tempos had relaxed to a cantor, and Jennings voice turned to an earthy croon.

Jennings' enduring legacy was minted by his fight for artistic independence in the early-70s, but his initial RCA sides are just as worthy as his outlaw breakthrough.
