200g 45rpm Double Vinyl LP Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Bernie Grundman! Plated and Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 260/500!
Willie Nelson has long been honored as a genuine legend, and his songs and concerts are loved worldwide. Though his roots are in country, Willie's musical influences are as broad as the Texas skies, unlimited to any one genre.
"These are my favorite songs. My favorite all-time songs," Willie says. "I knew there were millions of people who liked these songs and would love to hear them again. I grew up with them... they're some of the first songs I learned to play."
This distinctive reissue is housed in a heavyweight tip-on, old style gatefold jacket from Stoughton Printing. Unmatched quality, unmatched sound - that's the way Analogue Production rolls.
Willie ultimately scored big-time with this quintessential addition to his album catalog. The songs - "Moonlight In Vermont", "All of Me", "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" - are lovingly arranged here by Booker T. Jones of Green Onions fame and recorded in Nelson's inimitable style in Emmylou Harris' house.
Booker T's trademark sound set the mood for the session. Willie and cohorts mine a mellow groove here, sounding as if Willie is at home, sitting on his porch overlooking the beautiful Texas hill country.
Nelson's Stardust remains a genius-level creation as well as the icon's most commercially successful release, a truly gorgeous record infused with ultimate respect for composers and lyrics and many of the finest performances of Willie's career.
