    Not a big Willie fan but one can put up with that for the music and guest vocalists

    Willie is great and sounds great. I love how Willie tries to blend blues and country a little more (even though the whiteman stole the style away and called it country) and get away from that ultra conservative genre that is so mainstream in country music. A very liberal man. Toke it up Willie!

    CD shows how close country and blues really are...how they both generated and have lived off each other...This is definately a 10 to see one of the greatest country singers singing with some of the greatest blues singers...

  1. A sterling showcase for Nelson's bluesier side ?
  2. 10
    Misconceived is the polite word.
  3. The duets always seem like an intrusion to his musical vision, especially since everybody except Dr. John oversells these songs, singing like a cliché instead of finding their own sound. It's all the more frustrating because Nelson really does find his voice on each song here, a fact that's apparent on the three songs he has to himself...
