Posts Tagged ‘Wanted! Outlaws’

A friend asked me to post (on Facebook) the covers of ten(10) vinyl albums which had an impact on the musical taste(s) in my life.  The limitations are / were:  they must be (have been) vinyl, they should be posted one per day and with no explanation.  I don’t use Facebook for ten consecutive days, so here they are in one fell swoop…
My only criteria were: I had to own the album at or near the time of release, I had to have played the album (at least) 50 times the first year I owned it and it has to have at least one song I can still recite practically word for word.  I’m 99% sure I still  own all of these, but it might take some rooting around to dig them up…  (LoL!)  And, yes, there are literally dozens more I could have included on this list up through the early 1990’s when I moved to Liverpool and after which mostly (almost exclusively) bought CD’s (hence the shortage of country and modern artists).

One of the great American treasures of music is Willie Nelson.  Way back when I was in the Army I fell in love with his songs and song lyrics.  Today I’m including one of his classics on my Poems page.  The song is titled: “Me And Paul“.  It’s the story of hard times for a free spirit in the Country Music genre.
Although, I’ve “interpreted” the lyrics, this is one song you can’t “feel” just from reading the words.  You really have to go listen to it.  Highly recommended!!
The song is from his “Wanted! Outlaws” album, which is really a group /compilation album of Willie performing with Jessi Colter, Tompall Glaser and Waylon Jennings.  This was the first country music album to go platinum and it’s said that after this album, Nashville’s total domination of country music ended.  I guess the key word in that is “total”, as I still feel Nashville is pretty dominant.  This is the second song from this album to get added to my Poems page.  The first was “Put Another Log On The Fire” – another equally great life ‘n laughter song.
