WILLIE NELSON

Lost Highway

2009-09-04

As Willie Nelson departs his record company, Lost Highway, for another classic brand (Blue Note), the good folks at Lost Highway have released this "chestnuts" package with songs from previously released LH recordings -- along with four never-on-record-before cuts (one of which we can't play). The set starts out strong with assists from Rob Thomas and Lee Ann Womack, and the Jimmy Cliff tune from "Countryman" is always a treat. And of course, any duet with Lucinda is worth hearing again. The disc ends with two songs relating to the film "Brokeback Mountain," the first one an iTunes hit now on record; the second unplayable because of language. In all, a solid compilation of the latest Willie Era, on the cusp of him beginning yet another. Michael J. 09/09 F-Americana
