A&E BIOGRAPHY: A MUSICAL ANTHOLOGY is an Enhanced CD containing a full audio program as well as multimedia computer files.
Includes liner notes by Rich Keinzle.
Like Roy Rogers and a few other stars of A&E's popular Biography series, Willie Nelson had a retrospective CD released to coincide with the airing of his program. The disc more than stands up on its own, however, as it covers every stage of Nelson's long career with sterling choices and excellent liner notes. Opening with his hits as a Nashville songsmith, like "Hello Walls" and "Crazy," the disc continues through his early '70s reinvention as a pioneer of "outlaw" country, a hell-raising yet deeply traditional form that reached its pinnacle with his classic RED HEADED STRANGER album and its perfect single, a cover of the standard "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain." The closing tunes, including "My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" and a track by the supergroup the Highwaymen, are a bit slicker but no less heartfelt. As intended, this is an excellent single-disc introduction.
