Red Headed Stranger - Willie Nelson [1975]

Willie prevails. Jim Reeves string section nada. Adios Nashville faux country choral harmonics. Just Willie and a gloriously muddled concept album about a preacher on the lam, a murdered wife and a cowboy lover. Brief episodic song-vignettes, minimal backing. sun-dried no hokum cowpoke campfire tale.

Distinctive and elusive keeper.

Oddi wrth y brawd
