iTunes Editors’ Notes

Waylon Jennings proudly wore the Outlaw tag during the early ‘70s, transgressing the rules of Nashville’s country establishment. For a pack of revolutionaries, though, Jennings and his allies were less about confrontation than simply maintaining integrity. This Time (1974) is a prime example of the Outlaw ethos, an album filled with thoughtful reflection and unexpected tenderness. Jennings’ rugged don’t-tread-on-me persona always had its softer side and his understated strength comes through here in tracks like the sensual “Mona” and the determined title track. Jennings’ darkly resonant tones bring out the poignancy in “Slow Movin’ Outlaw” and the heartache in “It’s Not Supposed to Be That Way.” Love and its complications is a reoccurring theme, whether in its happier aspects (“Louisiana Women”) or its unsolvable mysteries (“If You Could Touch Her At All).” Sonically, This Time is low-key and folksy, much less raucous than its more celebrated predecessor Honky-Tonk Heroes. But song for song, it’s equally as revelatory of Jennings both as man and artist.

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...
