I love my local record stores best of all, but this is a great collection, good chance to fill in your collection, at a fair price. Individuals sell on Amazon, too, I know. I have to get another copy of Teatro, my favorite Willie Nelson album. I keep wearing that one out. It’s so good.

Bobbie Nelson talks about “Laws of Nature”, and new album with brother Willie Nelson

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

www.RollingStone.com

Willie Nelson’s self-penned “Laws of Nature” is a sweetly simplistic love letter to Mother Earth. The song, featured on the country icon’s new December Day album of collaborations with his sister, Bobbie Nelson, extolls the virtues of the sun, rain, wind and air and reminds that they are life forces.

“I’m not really sure where I was coming from on that, or where I went. [Laughs] But it seemed to be the thing to write at the time,” Willie says. “Somebody says it’s like a science lesson.”

“It is like a science lesson,” Bobbie, a member of her brother’s band since 1973, chimes in. “I learned a lot by listening to this song.”

For the accompanying video, the Nelson siblings alternate performance clips from Willie’s Pedernales Recordings Studio in Austin, Texas, with scenic shots of Texas farmland. Perhaps in an attempt to persuade the viewer to appreciate beauty all around, the landscape video mimics the view from a moving car. It’s a fitting musical tribute from the Farm Aid co-founder, who also owns his own bio-diesel brand.

In fact, December Day was largely inspired by family jam sessions on board the Honeysuckle Rose, Willie’s biodiesel-fueled tour bus. Released last week, the LP finds the Nelsons coupling new songs such as “Laws of Nature” with revamped hits including “Who’ll Buy My Memories?” and covers of American classics, including Irving Berlin’s “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” and “What’ll I Do.” December Day is the first installment in Legacy Recordings’ Willie’s Stash series, a collection that will revisit decades of country hits by the American treasure, along with treasured new tunes.

I think this was an alternative album cover, but I like it too.  But the Todd Wolfson photo they put on the cover, is so perfect.

Willie Nelson, “My Own Peculiar Way”

www.WillieNelson.com

The songs on ‘December Day: Willie’s Stash Vol. 1′ are taken from Willie Nelson’s vast songwriting catalog, including this song: “My Own Peculiar Way,” the title track to his 1969 album.


Give it a listen here: http://spoti.fi/1tN8xlc

It would be a comfort just to know you never doubt me

Even though I give you cause most every day

Sometimes I think that you’d be better off without me

Although I love you in my own peculiar way

Don’t doubt my love if sometimes my mind should wander

To a suddenly remembered yesterday

Cause my mind could never stay too long away from you’ll always love you in my own peculiar way

And although I may not always be the way you’d have me be

And though my faults may grow in number day by day

Let no one every say that I’ve ever been untrue

I’ll always love you in my own peculiar way

I’ll always love you in my own peculiar way

— Willie Nelson

In his advancing years, the Texan troubadour, 81, is speeding up rather than slowing down, this being his fifth album in two-and-a-half years. Accompanied by keyboardist sister Bobbie (a founding member of Nelson’s Family band), it’s a ramble through his vast back catalogue (Walkin’, Sad Songs and Waltzes etc), adding favourites such as Irving Berlin’s Alexander’s Ragtime Band – a set inspired by tourbus jam sessions. Indulgent perhaps, but Nelson’s worn, almost conversational vocals remain arresting. There’s the odd new composition – the droll I Don’t Know Where I Am Today – and screeds of his idiosyncratic guitar playing, rich and rococo on Ou Es-Tu Mon Amour. Bravo.

Vicentico talks about recording with Willie Nelson on new album, “Ultimo Acto”

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Los Fabulosos Cadillacs frontman talks new solo album, band’s 30th anniversary

Vicentico’s new album, Último Acto, revisits some of the raw-voiced Fabulosos Cadillacs frontman’s best-known songs. But there are surprises. Willie Nelson collaborates on a new version of “Sólo un Momento,” and rhythm geniuses Sly & Robbie drop in for “Las Estrellas.”

Two classic covers also stand out on an album whose sound varies from salsa to pop, reggae and country: Vicentico’s Spanish-language slow-dance update of the 1972 hit “Alone Again (Naturally)” and his Quentin Tarantino-meets-Pedro Almodovar take on La Lupe’s signature vein-cutter “Puro Teatro.”

“I think it’s a very eclectic record and it passes through a lot of different places,” Vicentico says about his sixth solo recording, which was released digitally earlier this month (the CD drops Jan. 20). “But somehow it works.”

From Las Vegas — where the Argentine singer performed at the Latin Grammys Person of the Year Dinner for Joan Manuel Serrat — he talked Último Acto, his Zen take on success, and the possibility of a new album from Los Fabulosos Cadillacs.

The biggest surprise on this album is your duet with Willie Nelson. How did that come about?

When I was putting the repertoire for the album together at one point I said, ‘And how about if we invite Willie Nelson?’ It was something that went through my head that I thought would never happen. [But] Willie just asked us to send some of my songs to listen to, and then he said yes. That was it.

He’s an angel, such a warm person.

We recorded in Nashville, and it was surprising to see a legend like Willie Nelson just sitting in front of the microphone, with his braids and blue eyes, so simple and so profound in his way of singing and really committed to the song.

It was an important moment for the album and an important moment for me as an artist.
