In many ways, This Time feels like a collaboration project. Not only does Willie Nelson contribute vocals and guitar, but Waylon nicks four tunes, including the mood-soaked "Walkin'," from Phases and Stages, which his old pal also released in 1974. But as with all of Waylon's best, This Time comes cloaked in a warm and spacious production unique to him. Stringed twang and percolating organ all float about his husky croon like phantom cowboys wandering the nighttime desert. It's oddly psychedelic.
