iTunes Editors’ Notes

Easily the greatest country supergroup of all time, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson formed a consecrated quartet of outlaw twang that yielded a couple of chart toppers. A slightly Texas-toned take on Jimmy Webb’s “Highwayman” (one of the album’s two hits) opens boldly as each country legend takes a verse over Chips Moman’s production – a glossy studio sheen that nicely contrasts the true grit of their weathered voices, especially when they all come in harmonizing together on an anthemic rendition of Guy Clark’s “Desperados Waiting for a Train” (the second hit here). Despite a loungy sounding electric jazz piano, Woody Guthrie’s “Deportee (Plane Wreck At Los Gatos)” gets a desolate bandito feel that can only be rivaled by The Byrds’ hipper version on their 1969 album Ballad of Easy Rider. Porter Wagoner may have recorded the definitive version of “Committed to Parkview,” on 2007’s Wagonmaster, but listening to The Man In Black’s original here is still sure to put a chill up your spine with its disturbing narrative and spooky western vibe.

Customer Reviews

EVERYBODY WHO KNEW ME IS DEAD -- ALMOST

Absolutely fantastic collection from the originals. If you don't like this you don't like music, any kind. This is Americana at its best, dressed up by modern remixing and "magic." Better buy it while two of the four are still with us. They'll all be gone soon and so will I! Buy it, treasure it. And if you need a good but "Old Cowboy" director for features, videos, stunts, or just advice, write me.

A TRUE Classic!

Kris Great Waylon Great Willie Great Johnny Great Put them all together and it is AMAZING This is one of the best Country singers should listen to this and then they will know real music. All songs are classics and i can't believe how good there remake of Against the wind is because Seger's version is so great, but they pulled it off. One last thing is to BUY THIS ALBUM!

You close your eyes and you're there... Like you are one of them.

It's not the whole album, but these are some of the best songs I have ever listened to. Four individulals whose sum is greater than their parts.

Johnny Cash was one of the most imposing and influential figures in post-World War II country music. With his deep, resonant baritone and spare percussive guitar, he had a basic, distinctive sound. Cash didn't sound like Nashville, nor did he sound like honky tonk or rock & roll. He created his own subgenre, falling halfway between the blunt emotional honesty of folk, the rebelliousness of rock & roll, and the world-weariness of country. Cash's career coincided with the birth of rock &...
