A new live record of Waylon Jennings is set for release in March.

Return of the Outlaw: The Abbott, Texas, Broadcast 1973 is from a concert that Jennings performed, along with Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver and Jerry Jeff Walker, on Nov. 4, 1973, in celebration of Abbott High School’s homecoming. Although Abbott native Nelson opened and closed the show — which drew around 10,000 people to the town with a population of about 350 and was broadcast by KAMC-FM — the concert was a big moment in Jennings’ career.

Many of the songs that Jennings performed at this 1973 show were later used on This Time, which came out in 1974. Jennings passed away in February of 2002, at the age of 64, due to complications from diabetes.

Return of the Outlaw: The Abbott, Texas, Broadcast 1973 will be released on March 11 through FM Concert Broadcasts. A complete track listing is available below.
