JENNINGS, WAYLON - THE DARK SIDE OF FAME (CD)


"Conventional wisdom holds that in the era of the late '60s and early '70s Waylon Jennings was a tethered beast, shackled in the straightjacket of the Nashville Machine's conformity. But we beg to differ. Indulge us for a moment and really listen to the brooding, blistering sides collected here. Witness the barely controlled menace of Don't Play The Game, the sublime quasi-psychedelia of MacArthur Park or the eye-gouging fuzz-tone of Six Strings Away. This magnificent collection of pre-'outlaw' cuts proves that 'conventional wisdom' never got it more wrong and that Waylon Jennings never lived far from the wrong side of the tracks. Deluxe collector's reissue remastered from the original RCA Victor master tapes and presented with exclusive liner notes, photos and a rare duet with fellow maverick Lee Hazlewood. Take a step into the dark side of fame..." (label info) 28 track CD, with 20 pages booklet
