Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
As Jennings introduces the live take of "Bob Wills is Still the King" that closes this otherwise studio-bound album, one rowdy audience member yells a drunken affirmation. Or maybe something else, given that Jennings breaks off mid-sentence, seemingly ready to leap into the crowd and open a Texas-size can of whup-ass on the guy. That he doesn't--and gives a smoking read of the song instead--is emblematic of the success of 1975's Dreaming My Dreams. Not yet having succumbed to the overblown boasts of "I've Always Been Crazy" that sold millions of records later in the decade, he's content here to wryly look askance at the Nashville establishment and his reputation as an "outlaw" and sing a couple of sweet love songs, all while playing plenty of tasty rhythm guitar. A keeper, and one of the most welcome CD reissues in years. --Rickey Wright
 

CD Reviews

The one country album a Yankee should own.
skqualls@aol.com | Edmond, OK | 05/08/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is to country what Van Halen I was to rock. Gritty, pure and from the soul, Jennings spans the spectrum from western swing in "Bob Wills is Still The King" to waltz/polka in "Waymore's Blues." Undeniably "outlaw" in nature, "Dreamin My Dreams" reflects the Waylon we wish we knew. Remember Elvis on Ed Sullivan? This is Waylon's lean, mean, yet tender duplicity that holds the banner of true country music that Brooks, McGraw, Byrd, and the other fill-in-the-blanks can only dream of."

"Dreaming My Dreams is probaly the most perfectly producedrecording made in the last 30 years. (Save Freddie Hart) This collection finds Waylon pushing the envelope in his search for the perfect high and then shifting gears to a troughy baritone seemingly to eminate from the dungeon of his soul. These compositions rise above kicking *** and taken names."
This album is in a class all by itself

"No one, I repeat, no one has recorded a country album with more drive, grit and determination than Waylons' "Dreaming My Dreams". If albums were compared to champagne, this would most definetely be the Dom Perignon of country music. From beginning to end songs such as the title track, Bob Wills is Still the King and I've Been a Long Time Leaving are pure classics. This album is heads above anything Waylon had done previously and definetely his material since then. I've always enjoyed Waylon and he seems to have gotten better each year since his arrival on the music scene. This is definetely the pinnacle of all his works and if you're a Waylon fan this is a absolute must, if you're not a Waylon fan or have been one of the few and unlucky ones who have never heard him...get it! You will not be sorry. This is without a doubt the best country and western album thats ever been made and maybe the only one that ever will be."
