Willie Nelson & Leon Russell Live in New Jersey 1979

Oh, the joy. It's Willie again, kids. This is the tour he did with Leon Russell that produced the timeless gem 'One For The Road' in 1979. Oh, if only I wasn't a snot-nosed 8 year-old then...sigh. Anyway, this album bears some resemblence to the former but is from the New Jersey show on that tour and broadcast on FM radio in New York WNAW. So, there is the inevitable station identification breaks which are not so bad that they truly interrupt the groove you get into on this one. I ahd to wait until 2006 to finally see Willie live in concert and cannot recommend enough the voice, talent, legend and all the good qualities that he has. A living legend indeed. Every time I listen to the 'Red Headed Stranger' album, my esteem only increases for his gifts. But, I digress. So, please sit back and enjoy the show. I am right now.
