THE SOUND IN YOUR MIND was released one year after Willie's breakthrough hit, RED HEADED STRANGER, and not surprisingly the album shares a lot in common with its predecessor. Both records are sparsely arranged, with Willie's vocals and gut-string guitar sharing the mix with Mickey Raphael's harmonica, sister Bobbie Nelson's piano, and little else. Both successfully sustain a mood of quiet wistfulness from start to finish.
The main difference between the two records is that THE SOUND IN YOUR MIND is not a concept album, but rather is "merely" a collection of great songs. The album includes the hit remake of Lefty Frizzell's "If You've Got the Money, I've Got the Time." Other tracks include a cover of the Ray Charles hit "That Lucky Old Sun," "Amazing Grace," and "I'd Have to Be Crazy." THE SOUND IN YOUR MIND closes with a medley of three Nelson compositions that had previously been hits for other artists, "Funny How Time Slips Away/Crazy/Night Life."
