#1 Nashville Outlaw
Released: Feb 2007
Label: Goldenlane Records
#1 Nashville Outlaw is the title, but this is early Jennings -- 1960s early, in fact, long before he and Willie Nelson became outlaw superstars. Lacking Jennings' signature sound, this collection reflects the wild variety (country, folk, rock and RnB) typical of Jennings' club gigs at the time. There's Roy Orbison's "Cryin'," the traditional Cajun waltz "Jole Blon," and even "Money (That's What I Want)." Jennings actually sounds like a different singer from track to track: simply compare "Lorena" to, say, "It's So Easy," the classic from Buddy Holly, whom Jennings played bass for in the '50s.
