Editorial Reviews

Great singer, good songwriter, underrated guitar player: Nashville Rebel supplies ample evidence that Waylon Jennings (1937-2003) was one of country music's best. Although the time frame (from 1970 to 1984) of this hour-long, 18-song collection is pretty narrow in the context of his entire career, it's revealing. When Jennings sang "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line" on Johnny Cash's TV show in '70, he had already recorded at least ten albums (he'd also been in Buddy Holly's backing band, and had famously given up his seat on the plane that crashed with Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson on board) and was still a fairly standard, pompadoured product of the Nashville assembly line. But just four years later, as we see in four songs taken from Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, he'd become the bearded, long-haired outlaw who helped bring country to the rock 'n' roll generation. Notwithstanding some great pedal steel guitar playing by Ralph Mooney, these latter performances are subdued, maybe too much so, but Jennings' charisma and talent are still apparent. Much better are the five previously-unseen tunes from a TV show produced by singer-record producer (and Waylon's brother-in-law) Jack Clement, which include "Lonesome, "On'ry and Mean" and "Amanda" and find Jennings and his band sounding a good deal more lively and committed. And best of all are the last five live tunes, which include Jennings' most popular material, like "Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)," "Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys," "Good-Hearted Woman," and "Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way" (the final selections include three videos and two TV commercials). Although Jennings went on to form the Highwaymen with Cash, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson, he never got the crossover acclaim that came to the others. That could be because he wasn't as iconic as Cash, as gregarious as Nelson, or a movie star like Kristofferson; or perhaps it was due to his substance abuse problems. Whatever, Waylon Jennings, a rebel indeed, is well-served by this release. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Waylon Jennings became a country star doing it Nashville's way. But he became a legend doing things his way. In the early 1970s, his and fellow Texan Willie Nelson's successful fight for creative control of their records launched country's Outlaw movement. From a career that began in 1958 with a single produced by rock icon Buddy Holly until his death in 2002, Waylon created edgy, timeless, straight-talking music like "I'm A Ramblin' Man," "Dreaming My Dreams With You," Luckenbach, Texas (Back To The Basics Of Love)" and "Good Hearted Woman" (with Willie). Nashville Rebel is a comprehensive, compelling 4-CD, 92-track, career-spanning overview beginning with the first Holly-produced single, a tune from his early '60s days in Phoenix, his early RCA hits and all the Outlaw masterpieces. Previously unreleased numbers include a never-heard 1978 duet with longtime pal Johnny Cash. A lavishly-illustrated book packed with rare photos and memorabilia showcases essays from guitarist-songwriter-critic Lenny Kaye (collaborator on Waylon's best-selling autobiography) and country historian Rich Kienzle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this AND the NASHVILLE REBEL 4-CD box set November 5, 2006
First off, I'd like to begin by clearing up a couple misconceptions:

1) this is NOT the 1966 film of the same name;

2) there is NOT a 100-page booklet included.

Both these points have erroneously appeared on a number of online-retailer websites.

This IS a companion piece to the acclaimed 4-CD box set of the same title.

The DVD menu opens with the flipping thru of a Waylon scrapbook...flipping a bit too fast to really study the pix but that's OK as most are included in the lavish 144 page book that comes with this DVD's big brother box set of the same title, also in stores now.

Here's what you'll see:

1. Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line

- from the Johnny Cash Show, 1970. Waylon had just won a Grammy for MacArthur Park and JRC congratulates him on that significant accomplishment. Waylon throws in that even JR ain't done that yet. Before launching into 'ONLY DADDY' they exchange the now-familiar comments about the time they shared a room at the Fontaine Bleu apartments in Madison -- where JR points out that during that era he felt that 'Waylon wouldn't ever amount to nuthin...'. He was sure wrong about that!! ;-)

2. Honky Tonk Heroes

3. Louisiana Woman

4. This Time

5. Slow Rollin Low

- trax 2-5 are from "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert", 1974. Sounds a helluvalot like the September recordings in Texas that same year. As opposed to the August 1978 'Lost Outlaw Performance' -which was attended exclusively by a very boring bunch of industry executives- these songs were recorded before a typical 70's crowd!!! :-)

6. Lonesome, Onry & Mean

7. Ramblin Man

8. It's Not Supposed To Be That Way

9. Amanda

10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent video companion to recent 4-CD set November 21, 2006
This collection of 20 segments includes vintage television appearances, live concert footage from Opryland, music videos and a pair of TV commercials. It's a superb look at Jennings as both a live performer and a commercial commodity. The program opens as then-defunct hippie affectations were cropping up in the oddest of mainstream places. The 1970 appearance on the Johnny Cash show still finds Jennings Nashville-slick with his well-kempt hair, but the band displays extra-Nashville influences with a double-neck guitar and a flower-power sticker on the electric bass.

The leap to track 2 picks up four years later with a signature appearance on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert television program. These segments find Jennings' hair and beard grown out, and his music and band tuned to fit a rock audience. Jennings plays country rock (including excellent versions of Billy Joe Shaver's "Honky Tonk Heroes" and "Slow Rollin' Low"), but with the showmanship of a rock band. Aside from Red Rhodes western shirt, Jennings' group looks like a rock band, and they play with enough aggression to please the longhairs, headbands and rednecks in the audience. The staging and camera work are superb.

Next up are five segments taken from Jack Clement's TV show that feature a similar band, but with a different vibe. Set in a studio Jennings and band pull back ever so slightly, playing as much for each other as for the cameras. Jennings smiles his way through an extended take of "I'm a Ramblin' Man," offering up some awesome lead guitar as the band jams; Willie Nelson's "It's Not Suppose to be That Way" shows Jennings gripping presence as a ballad singer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Waylon DVD February 15, 2007
Oh, I wish I could find more of these - I've always been a Waylon fan and have seen him in person several times - great performer and being able to see him again was great. Not enough songs on the DVD, tho - even tho 20 is quite a bit. Loved the first one with his clean cut look, but it just wasnt't the look we've all been used to.

Got my husband up to even dance to "Are you Sure Hank done it this a way". Can't just sit and listen to the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never be another like him January 19, 2007
First let me say that I am an absolute diehard Hoss fan, so my review may be a tad slanted. I received the boxed set and the DVD for Christmas. I haven't watched the DVD yet, but I have listened to cds - over & over. I love the way the discographers put this box set together. The songs run in chronological order from the admittedly phonetic (and sometimes pigdin Cajun) rendering of "Jole Blon" (thank Buddy Holley for this recording)to the final years of his career. This chronology allows the listener to truly appreciate Waylon's growth not just as a singer, but also as a songwriter, a musician, and a man. While I have always loved Waymore's "Lonesome, Onry, & Mean" era (I go crazy over his growls and whup whups), I have now become a fan of his early years - the years when his voice, smooth as velvet, was a far cry from what it became. The man was awesome throughout his life and this box cd set is the best way for the newbie Waylon fan to learn his music and old fans such as myself to put it all into perspective.

The biggest regret of my life is not seeing Hoss on stage. Don't make the mistake of not buying this cd set - it will set you on the path to real country music - country music as it is meant to be. If you listen to 98.1 and adore Keith Urban, maybe this set will liberate you from the clutches of Music Row's clones.
