Waylon Jennings: Old 97's & Waylon Jennings (CD)

(2013/Omnivore) 6 tracks. Imagine if Waylon Jennings came to see your band. Imagine if Waylon Jennings liked your band. Liked them enough to talk you up in press like The Austin Chronicle. Imagine your A&R guy telling you to write Waylon to thank him and see if he wanted to record some music with you. Imagine if Waylon said yes. Waylon Jennings attended an Old 97 s gig in 1996, and later that year joined Ken Bethea, Murry Hammond, Rhett Miller and Philip Peeples in a studio in Nashville to cut two tracks. The youthful energy of Old 97 s with the classic delivery of Waylon Jennings. Sadly, Waylon passed away and these recordings some of Jennings last never saw the light of day. Until now. Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce the first ever release of those two songs, Iron Road and The Other Shoe. Iron Road would eventually arrive as a live version on 2005 s Alive & Wired along with The Other Shoe (which first appeared on Old 97 s second album, 1995 s Wreck Your Life.) To make it even more special, we re adding two more previously unissued demos: Visiting Hours (a live version appeared on 2011 s The Grand Theater Vol. 2) and Fireflies (re-recorded by Rhett Miller for his acclaimed 2006 solo album The Believer.) These four songs will be available on double colored vinyl 7" set, packed in a gatefold sleeve with art from Jon Langford (of The Mekons & Waco Brothers, and renowned painter of Country Music icons) and insightful and hilarious liners from the band s Rhett Miller, which put you right there in the studio. The package also includes a download card, offering digital files of the four tracks. Alt-Country, Outlaw Country, or just plain Awesome Country, the Old 97 s & Waylon Jennings single is a must for fans of any or all of those genres. These historical documents finally see the light, 17 years after being recorded!

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
