Willie Nelson

Of course this is not Willie Nelson's first compilation / best of album. However, the 20 tracks featured on this disc culminate the 71 year old's career quite well. Yes there are several tunes missing here but this is a wonderful retrospective of an American icon neatly packaged on one disc. This album presents gems from Nelson's four plus decades in music. Interestingly, several collaborative and duet songs are featured here. This CD is for anyone interested in Willie Nelson's music; young or old.
