    This is Waylon Live in Texas 1975. A precious jewel of Country Music. Everything is there to see, Waylon shows the signs of his vices and his humanity, with great stage presence, stripped down band, the best musicians backing him. It's just great. I was a Junior in high school when this was recorded. I hope young people today can appreciate the greatness of Waylon.

    I think people overlook his guitar playing...nobody should overlook any aspect of him as a performer.

    I was a huge Waylon fan back in the 70's. I don't listen to him much anymore; I better rectify that.

    I got to see him in '73 opening for The Grateful Dead and New Riders of the Purple Sage. My steel player at the time got to talk to Ralph Mooney after their set. They were really good. I liked them before, but became a fan that day.

    Truly one of a kind. One of those bands with a sound you know is his before the end of the first bar.
    Me and the family have been watching old Dukes of Hazzard reruns lately. That tooled leather tele opens every episode :)

    Ukepicker trivia: I married into a branch of the Jennings family. My wife's grandma remembered Waylon when he was young, coming to a family reunion and climbing up in a tree with his guitar to play and sing for the kids.

    Keith Richards owns that Tele now. :)
