Waylon Jennings

Jennings’ gruff baritone always commands respect: if he told you to eat an armadillo, you’d do it and like it. His band, too (though no longer billed as the Waylors), is still the best in country music, spurred by Richie Albright’s drums and Ralph Mooney’s steel guitar. Except for an unfortunate fling with a dudish Neil Diamond tune, Sweet Caroline, this album is at least the equal of any previous, which is Texas-sized praise.
