Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

So what if this disc doesn't represent the best work of either man--the warm smiles and hugs that dominate the CD's artwork tell the real story. Released in early 1978, Waylon & Willie was a celebration of their triumphant revolution against Nashville's constraints. By then, the war had already been won; each had wrested artistic freedom from the labels and subsequently delivered chart-topping solo albums and singles. The 1976 compilation Wanted! The Outlaws proved to be the ultimate victory--becoming the first country album to go platinum--so by the time they put this album together, Waylon and Willie were at the peak of their commercial powers. There's plenty of great music here as well among the five duets and six solo tracks (three by each), mostly new tunes with some older material thrown in. Not all of it is essential, and Willie's own guitar is nowhere to be found, allowing Jennings's Waylors to deftly handle the musical accompaniment. Still, the cultural importance of Waylon & Willie--it soared to No. 1 on the country chart, stayed there for three months, and went double platinum--makes it a valuable memento of "outlaw" country's heyday and of modern country history. --Marc Greilsamer

Product Description

The 1978 meeting of Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson on this LP heralded a musical brotherhood of near-mythic proportions. It also became a #1 LP, stayed on the charts for two years and featured their #1 smash Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys . First time on CD in its entirety!

5.0 out of 5 stars Willie At His Politically Incorrect Best February 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This remastered and unabridged version of the Willie and Waylon classic has been long overdue. I still haven't figured out why RCA released an edited version of this ten plus years ago and choose to omit "Don't Cuss That Fiddle" and the politically incorrect "The Year 2003 minus 25." Perhaps Willie got a little too controvesial for the music execs with the line "Who would have thought those Arabs would have bought The USA only to give it to the Jews". All in all this is an outstanding follow-up to their smash recording of Outlaws released 2 years earlier on RCA.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ten-star classic January 31, 2003
Format:Audio CD
A super-groovy collection of good-natured, good ole boy-ish tunes from the poster children of the "outlaw" scene. This disc is so packed with goodies, it's hard to know where to begin heaping on the praise. Waylon's soul-drenched sound is a great match for Willie's jazzy sensibilities, and both guys sound like they had a blast recording this album. With songs like "Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys," "Wurlitzer Prize," "Pick Up The Tempo" and "I Can Get Off On You," this is an absolute must-have album. Sure, you can get a lot of these tracks on best-of packages, but it's worth it to hear this collaboration in its glorious full context. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you wanna talk classics... April 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Yep, this album is a classic. What makes an album a classic? Pure and simple greatness. That, and it sold quite a few copies--but sales aside, this album's greatest gem is the pairing of two musical geniuses. Waylon Jennings, the guy who established the outlaw movement and made it what it was; and Willie Nelson, the guy who took songwriting to a whole new level, and showed us that less is more. Waymore and the Red-Headed Stranger...two musical icons.

Enough praise aside--you know how great and important these two men were to music. Let's look at the songs. If you've never heard "Mamma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys" (in any of its incantations, though this is the best), then you need to turn your radio on every once in a while. And you just haven't lived until you've heard these two lamenting on Kris Kristofferson's witty "Don't Cuss the Fiddle." And "The Wurlitzer Prize," a Waylon solo effort, stands as one of the defining songs of country music.

Oh, there is much more to this album--but I'm gonna leave you with a few surprises. Whether they're dueting or going it alone, Waylon and Willie have crafted one of the single best albums ever made. WAYLON & WILLIE has withstood the test of time, and will continue to do so for generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Waylon and Willie August 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is the ultimate Waylon and Willie Album. The album includes their signature tune "Mommas don't let you babies grow up to be cowboys. They each sing three solos including Waylon's Wurlitzer Prize.Plus they sing five duets. This album show cases the best of these two singers.
