Guest deleted_19765 Posted March 15, 2010 Share Posted March 15, 2010 So, I'm pretty sure that I haven't started a Willie thread before, if that's possible. Its been about three or four years since I began listening to him, and I have hardly slowed down at all during that time. He is a brilliant songwriter, guitarist, and interpretive vocalist and I just plain love most of his records. He is always doing something different and whatever that happens to be it tends to be a success. I like his overproduced 80s Pop Country albums as much as his 70s concept albums. Admittedly, he has lost some steam in old age and knows that he doesn't have to really sing anymore, but I have seen him live twice and enjoyed the show both times. I can also enjoy some, but not all, of his recent output. In terms of my appreciation of Willie it also doesn't hurt that his late best friend and frequent collaborator, Waylon Jennings, is an artist I listen to just about as much. We have the same favorite plant too. My Willie albums, with stars on the absolute favorites:Shotgun WilliePhases and StagesRed Headed StrangerThe Troublemaker*Waylon & Willie (with Waylon Jennings)Stardust*One For The Road (with Leon Russell)Pretty PaperSan Antonio Rose (with Ray Price)*Honeysuckle RoseAlways On My Mind*City of New OrleansTougher Than LeatherWillie And The Wheel (with Asleep At The Wheel)Any suggestions for my next Willie albums are more than welcome! I hope there are some other fans who would like to discuss the legend. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
