Our Review

Willie Nelson has become an American icon — the pony-tailed elder statesman — but it took him decades of perseverance to get there. His musical acumen was there from the beginning but his unorthodox delivery that has since become a natural part of the American musical vernacular was once considered far out of the mainstream. This collaboration with fellow Western Swing aficionados Asleep At the Wheel, initially suggested back in the ‘70s by legendary producer Jerry Wexler, is a well-balanced, unpretentious collection of easy-flowing tunes that emphasize the backing group's expert musicianship and Nelson's always recognizable vocal delivery. Singing behind the beat, Nelson brings a soothing, simmering tension to the traditional “Hesitation Blues,” a lazy saloon feel to the horn-driven “Fan It,” and his usual sense of play with “I Ain't Gonna Give Nobody None O' This Jelly Roll.” Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys, who virtually defined the Western Swing genre, are well served with “Corrine Corrina,” “Bring It Down to My House” and “Right or Wrong.” It's the sound of two veteran acts doing what comes naturally.

Can't We Give it 6 Stars? (5 stars)

This should be required listening for anyone who loves and appreciates Western Swing. How can you go wrong with two of the titans of the genre? There's a lot more that I could say about this collection but it all boils down to one word: brilliant!

Buy it today!!!

PS…I'm so DONE with people who have nothing better to do than troll around awarding "1 Star" ratings to music they don't like or understand ('Dragon.') Get a life,

Willie and The Wheel are Perfect Together (5 stars)

Willie and The Wheel is a fantastic album; full of great musicianship, killer harmonies and peppy horn licks. Western Swing ain't dead….It's Asleep at the Wheel! AATW sounds very tight on this release and Willie's vocals go so well over the jazzy orchestration. This album kinda reminds me of my time spent in New Orleans. Yet another fantastic addition to The Wheel's collection. Probably Willie's best work in years.


Excellent (5 stars)

Asleep at the Wheel and Willie Nelson deliver another fantastic album. I enjoy every song on this album! Keep Traditional Country Music alive and buy this one!

Since the early '70s, Asleep at the Wheel have been the most important force in keeping the sound of Western swing alive. In reviving the freewheeling, eclectic sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, the Wheel have earned enthusiastic critical praise throughout their lengthy career; they have not only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music, but have also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form. Typically featuring eight to…
