Reseña de álbum

Not to be confused with his 1964 debut ,Folk-Country, 1969's Country-Folk pairs Waylon Jennings with the folk harmony group the Kimberlys and, contrary to the title, everybody involved doesn't spend too much time singing either country or folk. The sounds and songwriters of 1969 dominate: Waylon and the Kimberlys tackle Jimmy Webb's "MacArthur Park" and Joe South's "Games People Play," while finding songs by Jackie DeShannon ("Come Stay with Me") and Gordon Lightfoot ("Long Way Back Home"). These sit next to Harlan Howard's "Mary Ann Regrets" and three songs by Harold Gay, including a song co-written by Waylon called "These New Changing Times" that sums up the vibe of the whole project. Country-Folk isn't tethered to tradition — it's a quintessentially modern album for 1969, dripping with strings; dressed in harmonies and horns; accentuated by harmonicas, harpsichords, and 12-string guitars. Sonically, it's a cousin to Glen Campbell's gorgeous hits of the late '60s, such as "Gentle on My Mind" and "Wichita Lineman" — it's no coincidence that the first song here is a Jimmy Webb cover — which also straddled the line between country and pop, leaning far closer to the former, thanks to an emphasis on melody and texture. The Kimberlys are quite comfortable in this setting and Waylon is less so, but not by much; his resonant baritone might be better suited for grittier music than this, but here he acts as a muscular, masculine counterpoint to the lush, soft surroundings, giving it a focal point that's welcome. Country-Folk still is a bit too tied to its new changing times — it not only evokes its era, it belongs to it — but as a pop artifact, it's worth hearing, and is one of the more entertaining oddities in Waylon's discography.

Si un solo artista pudiera personificar el movimiento outlaw country de los 70, sería Waylon Jennings. Rechazó las convenciones de Nashville, se negó a grabar con las legiones de músicos de estudio de la industria e insistió en que su música nunca se parecería a los sonidos cargados de cuerdas e influenciados por el pop que salían de Nashville en los 60 y los 70. Muchos artistas, Willie Nelson y Kris Kristofferson entre ellos, siguieron con la postura anti-Nashville de Waylon y luego, el movimiento...
