Nashville Rebel (Legacy)
Waylon Jennings merits all the recognition Music Row cares to bestow, but clocking in at a mere hour, padded by a pair of archival commercials for RCA, Nashville Rebel, coinciding with the 4-CD box of the same name, doesn't cut it. Sure, it rolls out hits: a 1970 performance of "Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line" on Johnny Cash's show and a solo rendition of "Waymore's Blues" with Jessi Colter sitting nearby from 1974. Those four short years aged Jennings, but neither his voice nor his charisma ever falters. Waymore deserves way more.
