It wasn't until late 1974 that the Waylon Jennings mystique took hold for me. This is partly because to my mind that's when his sound coalesced—resulting in the great Dreaming My Dreams—but more because that's when I first saw him live….

Live has little to do with the prefab "progressive" country albums that seem to dominate the market today. It may bog down in a place or two, but if you only want one Waylon Jennings album, this is the essential one.
