20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection...
Released: Sep 2002
Label: MCA Nashville
Forget about the fact that Jerry Jeff Walker was from Long Island and his songs of redneck celebration and yearning for honky-tonk cred are a little too well written; almost perfectly realized outlaw country lite. The real draw to Jerry Jeff is the way he sang: smooth and rough all at once and genuinely doomed by drink. All his best songs are on here.
