The chemistry among the musicians couldn’t be denied. “You wouldn’t think that our four uneven voices would blend,” Nelson has said. “But they did.” Mickey Raphael, who played harmonica on the album, recalls the men’s differing styles. “Johnny was bigger than life. Kris was the revolutionary, and Willie was the jokester,” he says. “Waylon was the conscience of the whole thing, very intense, the one who said, ‘Don’t screw this up.'”
