Editors’ Notes

Since Waylon Jennings left RCA for MCA in 1986, Waylon Jennings: The Complete MCA Recordings opens sounding very ‘80s with the slick production that was indicative of the era. Still, starting with a stellar cover of Los Lobos’ “Will The Wolf Survive?” is an awesome way to set the tone for this 42-song-deep compilation. The endearingly maudlin “Suddenly Single” blends AM-radio soft-rock synthesizers with twangy fragments of the urban cowboy sound, but hearing Waylon sing, “If I wasn’t over 30 I just might move back in with mom and dad” takes the cake. He also gives Steve Earle’s “The Devil’s Right Hand” a sharp sense of authority, while his cover of “Baker Street” – that’s right, Waylon Jennings covers Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street” – actually ends up playing less like a guilty pleasure and more like a definitive version. “Somewhere Between Ragged and Right” ends with some of the most beautiful guitar work here.

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...
