Waylon Jennings: Goin' Down Rockin' - The Last Recordings reg.

(2012/TURNER-UPD) 12 tracks (44:50) 20 page booklet. A New Album From Outlaw Country Legend Waylon Jennings Will Be Release This September, Filled With Recordings The Icon Made During The Last Few Years Before His Death in 2002. Jennings Spent Hours In A Recording Studio With His Longtime Accompanist, Robby Turner And Together Laid Down Twelve Tracks Using Just Waylon's Guitar And Vocals And Turner's Bass. All Songs Were Personally Selected By The Country Star, Ones That Resonated In A Deeply Personal Way And Reflected His State Of Mind, His Passions, And Important Statements He Wanted To Make About His Life. The Duo Planned Out The Future Instrumentation That Would Be Added To The Tracks, But Jennings Was Never Able To Complete Them. 10 Years After His Passing, Turner Returned To The Recordings, Finished Each Song To Honor Waylon's Vision Of What Would Turn Out To Be His Very Last Album. Bringing In Musicans Who Had Long Worked With Waylon, Such As Reggie Young, Richie Albright And Tour Mate Tony Joe White, Turner Painstakingly Created The Album That Waylo Set Out To Make. 'Waylon Knows He's Surrounded By Friends And All That Hear This Will Feel As If The Know Waylon In All His Authenticity,' Explains His Widow, Country Singer Jessi Colter. Jennings Wrote 11 of the 12 Songs That Appear On The New Album, A Testament To The Personal Nature Of The Recordings, And They Reveal AN Artist In The Midst Of A Final Creative Peak. In Addition To His Own Songs, The album Includes Tony Joe White's 'Goin' Down Rockin' (On Which White Himself Is A Guest). In All, The Album Will Feature Eleven Songs That Have Never Been Released Before. One Of The All Time Greatest Country Music Vocalists, Jennings Was Also The Founder Of The Outlaw Movement, Received Two Grammy Awards, And Multiple Country Music Association And Academy Of Country Music Awards. 11 Of His Albums Hit #1 On The Country Charts, With 16 #1 Singles. In All, 54 Of Jennings' Albums Have Charted And More Than 100 Singles Cracked The Country And Pop Charts. He Was Inducted Into The Country Music Hall Of Fame In 2001.

Waylon Jennings

The Jennings family was like many in West Texas, subsistence farmers and odd jobbers. His folks, William Albert Jennings and Lorene Beatrice Shipley, had married in 1935, and he was the oldest child, born June l5, 1937. Littlefield was a town built around the cotton fields, carved up from a three million acre ranch that had been under the aegis of Major George Washington Littlefield at the turn of the twentieth century. The seat of Lamb County, it was bisected by the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railroad, and it was as typical a small town Texas life as could be, working in his Daddy's produce store, chasing girls through the town square, watching the cowboy pictures at the Palace Theatre.

There was music in the family - his Daddy loved to sing like Bill Monroe and pluck his guitar thumb-and-finger style, while his Momma showed him how to form his first chords - and more crackling over the radio: the Grand Ole Opry and the Louisiana Hayride and Stan's Record Rack and, one morning in the fall of 1954, the echoings of a countryish singer who sounded like no other country singer before: Elvis Presley, reprising Arthur Crudup's That's Alright, Mama and Bill Monroe's Blue Moon Of Kentucky.

Waylon himself leaned toward Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb, and soon enough was trying to emulate his idols by appearing at the weekly Palace Theatre talent shows. Finding he wasn't much good at most of the available menial labors in town, he found a job at the Voice of Lamb County, KVOW, as a disc jockey, playing a variety of music from Mantovani to country to the classics. Slowly his circle of performing expanded, and he was able to watch the rise of rock and roll first-hand when a local boy from Lubbock, Buddy Holly, had a hit record called
