In my humble opinion, 90% of Willie Nelson's recordings are equal to or better then any C&W music recorded in the last four decades. The remaining 10 % which falls short of the benchmark is still worth a listen.

The material contained within Rarities Vol.1 falls into the later category. There is truth in packaging and this compilation makes no pretense other then this collection being an "odds and sods" from Willie's recording legacy. Notes from the back of the CD case identify this material as recorded early in WN's career. It's a generous collection of eleven acoustic tracks and an additional seven tunes with a band which is priced very modestly.

Bill Dahl's liner notes devote 13 paragraphs to WN's bio (which are remarkably comprehensive) but only one paragraph referencing the material contained on the CD.

It's disappointing that the CD contains no reference to dates or locations for these recordings. Additionally, it fails to identify any of the musicians who played on the band tracks. I would hazard a guess, that all these tracks were produced in Nashville in the early to mid sixties. WN's success during this period was primarily as a songwriter rather than a recording artist. In fact, two tracks contained on the CD," Undo the Right "and " Who Do I Know in Dallas ", were major C&W hits for other artists in the mid sixties.

There are several reasons why Willie, at this point, failed to achieve fame as a recording artist and they are very apparent on these recordings. He hadn't found or developed his voice as a key instrument in the recording process. His voice on these recordings is unseasoned and lacks confidence in presenting the material.
