Pretty Paper by Willie Nelson
Released: Nov 1979
Label: Columbia
Recorded in 1979, this is primo mid-period Willie, bouncing down the chimney with a platter of holiday standards interpreted as only he can. This LP contains not only the definitive version of its title track, but other standards of the season crafted with loving attention. The most impressive of Nelson's tricks, though, lies in his treatment of chipper standards like "Rudolph..." and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," which manage to remain listenable year after year.
