Honky Tonk Heroes - Waylon, Willie, Kris, & Billy Joe (rs)
Aantal CD's: 1
An outlaw country super-session of sorts,
Honky Tonk Heroes began when Billy Joe Shaver
and his guitar-hero son Eddie started working on
a new album at Willie Nelson's studio.
Nelson showed up and started singing,
as did (eventually) Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings,
and at this point they began remaking some of
Shaver's best-known songs.
The resulting tracks have a much harder rock edge
than you might expect, courtesy of Eddie,
an incredible slide player
(his solos at the end of "Tramp on Your Street" are hair-raising)
who can also sound like everybody from Keith Richards to
Richard Thompson. Even better, his elders--particularly Nelson,
who's never sung better--seem to be having fun in the new context.
An unassuming but deeply satisfying album.
