Thanks for posting, Ken.

If there's anything better than a beautifully written song with great lyrics and a sincere voice singing it, I don't know what it is. Good on Willie for using his freedom to give voice to these wonderful songs.

He's beginning to sound a little older, but at 79 that's hardly surprising. But his vocals are still so wonderfully simple and sincere that it really doesn't matter. These late albums are not ever going to be regarded as his greatest works, but to be nearly 80 and still so in control vocally, physically and mentally and still giving pleasure to millions is one hell of an achievement. And while I certainly haven't heard all Nelson's albums, I have yet to find one that doesn't have something to recommend it.

He still sounds great vocally on this album but it's his guitar playing that sets him apart.To play like he does on this at 80 is astonishing.His jazzy solos are all over it and sound superb he gets old Trigger singing like a bird.His sister Bobbie compliments him well with simple understated piano with not a note wasted.The harmonica playing of Mickey Raphael has been a highlight of many a Willie album and he's as brilliant as ever giving the songs some atmosphere.Individually you can't fault any of the songs all expertly played and sung the only drawback being they are pretty much done at a similar pace and style which might not make for too many repeated spins after the initial
few plays.Still there is much to enjoy and hats off to Willie yet again proving age is no barrier to his abilities.
