EDITORS’ NOTES

Willie Nelson was already an outlaw country legend by 1978, but Stardust, his best-selling album, made him a household name. Released long before albums of jazz standards were a viable option for artists in other genres, Nelson’s weatherbeaten croon and lyrical acoustic guitar sound right at home on classics like “All of Me,” “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.” Recorded in nine days and produced by Booker T. Jones, Stardust is one of the earliest indications of Nelson’s gift for brilliant reinventions.
