iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though it was unreleased until 1976, Waylon Live captures Waylon Jennings in 1974, still riding the wave of white-hot excitement generated by Honky Tonk Heroes. Engineered by Al Pachucki — who recorded all of Elvis’s classic concert albums — every sound rings with purpose and clarity. There is flavor enough to transport listeners back to the Western Place in Dallas and the Opry House in Austin, where these songs were recorded over a few dates in September 1974. Even better, there is a wonderful raucousness to the playing. You can really feel the band interacting with the audience, who are essential to the feel of the performance as the band. This is the greatest backing group Waylon ever had, and this is their crowning achievement. Drummer Ritchie Albright and bassist Duke Goff give every song a foot-stomping groove, while harmonica man Roger Crabtree and guitarists Billy Ray Reynolds and Larry Whitmore put the icing on top of each song. But the concert’s MVP is undoubtedly pedal steel player Ralph Mooney, who brightens every corner with his soul and zing.

Customer Reviews

The Best of All Waylon Albums!

If you are gonna buy one Waylon album, this is the one! This is Waylon in his prime, with the Waylors back in the mid 70's. This live album has a much more energetic feel to it than any other studio album he has out. It is a true epic and classic album to played over and over again. Even after all 42 songs have played, you still want to hear more. This is Waylon at his finest, with many great steel guitar/instrumental solos in each song that give the album the classic Waylon sound. This is a must have for any Waylon fan or anyone who wants to buy just one great album to represent him at his best.

Best Live Recording

This is one of the greatest Live recordings of all time of any genre. It typifies the outlaw country movement of the 70's, and it is the highlight in Waylon's career that is full of highlights. I read somewhere that the best live bands of this era were the Wailers and the Waylors; whether you believe it or not, it's a great quote. You can't go wrong with this one, Hoss!

Unbeatable

Waylon's version of "House of the Rising Sun" is the best cut I have come across. The sound quality of this album is superb and you feel as if you were in the crowd. This recording is a must have of any great country music collection.

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...
