Album Review

Waylon Jennings’ cool, almost calm, presence on the country and country-rock scene in the 1970s made him in many ways the very template for the outlaw country movement, and he sang like he’d lived it, and he came on-stage dressed like a man who wore those same clothes while he lived it. This 12-song playlist features Jennings singing some of his signature songs, including “Are You Ready for the Country,” “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys,” “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,” and “I Ain’t Living Long Like This,” among others, in various concert settings, and it makes for a nice introduction to his unassuming approach to what country music should be.
