The Wondrous Ways of Willie Nelson

   It's the first weekend of the summer and what better way to spend a summer than listening to Willie Nelson?!  Not that you don't listen to Willie in all seasons, but there's just something about his music that makes it a perfect fit for late summer afternoons or very late summer nights.  And though I suspect he's going to live another 10-20 years (or more), it's always good to pay tribute to a true legend they are alive.   Therefore, I've prepared a three volume set of Willie's finest (I'll put the third volume up next month.)  As is my usual habit, I've tried to stay away from most of the big hits.  I did, however, include one from his dandy recent release, God's Problem Child.  Enjoy!

   Late Update: I've also reupped the Willie Nelson covers compilations I put together several years back.

Was listening to Shotgun Willie just today, and thinking how lucky we are to still have him among us ... and still putting out great music. Thanks for this.

Quite welcome. And you're absolutely right about being lucking to have Willie still here - truly an American national treasure.

This is lovely -- thank you so much! All this Willie Nelson is making my weekend!
FYI, the track labeled Honeysuckle Rose is actually September in the Rain.

Thanks for the heads up. It's listed incorrectly on the cd too, but I should have caught it.
