Editors’ Notes

Country legend Waylon Jennings died in 2002. At the time, he'd been working on these recordings at his home studio with his friend and producer/bassist Robby Turner. After Jennings' passing, his family didn't want to be seen as cashing in; they waited 10 years before giving approval for this release. Members of Jennings' band, The Waylors—Reggie Young, Richie Albright, and Tony Joe White—were brought in to complete the tracks. White provides the title track, and longtime friend and co-conspirator Willie Nelson has his "Sad Songs & Waltzes" given a final look. Jennings is in strong voice on these tracks, and Turner stays true to the best Jennings country sound, neither overglossing nor leaving the tracks bare. As Jennings' final recordings, these will stand comfortably alongside his vast and deservedly respected catalog. The deluxe version adds three unvarnished acoustic takes that let listeners hear Jennings without overdubs.

Customer Reviews

Great final record

Shoot, I miss Waylon. Nothing this good has come along in the 10 years since he passed. Apparently, his old band got back together to finish his last recordings, and I swear this is on a par with anything he ever did. Sure, his voice is a little frail in places, but it works for all the reasons that made Cash's last records so moving. The undubbed recordings are here too. You can hear the strings rattle and hear that Waylon spirit.

Amazing Legacy

His voice... his lyrics... I could listen to this album over and over and not get tired of it. It's sparse, but yet rich. Just listen to the album once and I guarantee you'll be a Waylon fan. Goin' Down Rockin' really is amazing. What a gift we've been given!

If any one performer personified the outlaw country movement of the '70s, it was Waylon Jennings. Though he had been a professional musician since the late '50s, it wasn't until the '70s that Waylon, with his imposing baritone and stripped-down, updated honky tonk, became a superstar. Jennings rejected the conventions of Nashville, refusing to record with the industry's legions of studio musicians and insisting that his music never resemble the string-laden, pop-inflected sounds that were coming...
