Willie Nelson: “One for My Baby (and one more for the road)”

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018
by: Patrick Doyle

Frank Sinatra and Willie Nelson were huge fans of each other, even playing a show together and teaming up for a series of PSAs in the 1980s. Nelson pays tribute to his favorite singer on My Way, out this Friday, and just released a video for “One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)” that showcases Nelson’s loose, indelible phrasing and jazz skill.

The song – written by Harold and Johnny Mercer – was first performed by Fred Astaire in 1943’s The Sky’s the Limit. But Sinatra made it his own when he recorded it four year later, the first of several versions he made over the years. In Music of the World War II Era, William H. Young and Nancy K. Young write that the song “has transcended time, emerging as possibly the ultimate saloon song and one of Mercer’s most memorable efforts, yet another 1940s song that has absolutely nothing to do with World War II.” Everyone from Chuck Berry to Ella Fitzgerald to Iggy Pop have also recorded the song.

Nelson is currently in the middle of a busy month. He plays this Wednesday at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium with Van Morrison, and is playing East Coast dates of the Outlaw Music Fest and Farm Aid with his son’s groups Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Particle Kid, and more. “There’s no better feeling,” Nelson says, “than having kids working with you and doing a good job.”

Willie Nelson & friends record “You Gotta Serve Somebody” for ‘Muscle Shoals Small Town Big Sound’ album

Willie Nelson has recorded another version of Bob Dylan’s ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’ for the Muscle Shoals homage album.

Nelson first cut ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’ for his 2008 album ‘Moment of Forever’. He added an extra four minutes in length to the Dylan track.

For the new version Willie has teamed with Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton and Lee Ann Womack.

Willie Nelson first recorded at Muscle Shoals in Alabama in 1972. The sessions made up his 17th album ‘Phases and Stages’ in 1974.

Jerry Wexler wanted to record Bob Dylan’s ‘Slow Train Coming’ at Muscle Shoals but instead the album was made in Los Angeles. However, the Muscle Shoals Sound was brought in for the sessions.

Dylan did go to Alabama and record at Muscle Schoals for his next album ‘Saved’.

‘Muscle Shoals Small Town Big Sound’ will be released on 28 September 2018.

Rest in Peace, Burt Reynolds

Thank the show business gods for Burt Reynolds, talk show raconteur. On Thursday’s Tonight Show, he told Jay Leno how much he loves his Dukes of Hazzard costar Willie Nelson.   And when I say ”loves,” I’m not exaggerating much. Quoth Burt: ”When I worked with Willie Nelson, who is just about the nicest man I’ve ever worked with in my life, the sweetest, kindest man, I thought, ‘If I’d have been gay, it would have saved me millions.”’ The 69-year-old actor added that, if he and the 72-year-old singer had become a couple way back when, they’d still be ”happily together.” I don’t know what Nelson thought of Reynolds, but I’m just glad they didn’t work their relationship into the movie. A romance between Boss Hogg and Uncle Jesse might just have sent poor Cooter over the edge.
