NELSON, WILLIE - THE WILLIE WAY$32.98
180gm translucent red colored vinyl LP pressing, housed in a gatefold sleeve. With a six-decade career and a catalog of more than 200 albums to his credit, the iconic Texas singer-songwriter Willie Nelson has earned a permanent position in pop music's pantheon with songs that combine the sophistication of Tin Pan Alley with the rough-and-tumble grit and emotional honesty of country music. 1972's The Willie Way served as Nelson's final release for longtime label RCA before his move to Austin, TX where he became prime mover of a revolutionary and thriving outlaw country music scene. It finds Willie balancing Nashville conventions with rock influences and offering up stellar originals like the haunting balladry of "I'd Rather You Didn't Leave Me" and "You Left Me a Long, Long Time Ago," a masterful collaboration with Hank Cochran on "Undo The Right" and covers of Kris Kristofferson's "Help Me Make It Through The Night" and the classic country blues standard "Mountain Dew."
