Site review by flyingdutchman October 14, 2004
Performance:   Sonics:
Simply THE Willie Nelson cd to get. As to the SACD, I rate this highly in sound as well. Willie is right there in your room as a friendly mellow voice singing old favorites that have never sounded better than they do here. This is the kind of music, other than jazz and classical, that benefit from SACD clarity. Don't hesitate.

Of course, there are some people who have a problem with this release not being multichannel, but I think with the close and intimate soundstage there is no need to discount the sound because it was recorded in stereo. This isn't music with a huge soundstage and for that reason the clarity of the instruments and Willie's voice settles in nicely.

So, a recommended recording and one that should be a part of your collection.

Performance:   Sonics:
Absolutely stunning production by Booker T. Jones and vocals by Willie Nelson elevate this from the "Country" category it's been unfairly placed in.

This is an excellent collection of standards that belongs in any collection of American popular song.

Performance:   Sonics:
Sorry but I don't get this.

Take an average pensioner off the street and ask them to sing in a studio. That's what I get.

Production is cheesy.

Wish I could be more positive I have really tried to like this SACD since it was released.
