Some Great Songs Here!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an unexpected, out-of-left-field cd reissue from Sony's Special Markets label. It's budget priced at less than $6, so it was an easy buy for a Waylon completist like me, as it's full of songs from a period that's been woefully ignored on cd releases this side of the Atlantic from Germany. Of all the songs, the only two I'm familiar with are "Only Daddy", which is an all-time classic, and "Walk On Out Of My Mind", which was a bonus track on Buddha's Love of the Common People reissue from a few years back.

The liner notes of that collection said that "Walk On Out Of My Mind" had never been issued before by RCA, which is obviously innaccurate since Only The Greatest came out on LP back in 1968. I'm not all that knowledgeable about Waylon history, though, so can anyone fill me in on what this album actually is? It's supposed to be a compilation album...but compiling what? I don't see any of these tracks as songs on his other albums from that period.

No matter what, this is a good record for Waylon fans. There are some deep cuts here that really shine a different light on a guy who had a long career before the Outlaw Uprising...full of some quality songs and performances that are worth paying a little attention to."
