On Oct. 21, 2016, country music fans will be able to pick up an album of 14 original tracks and one bonus track, from the late Waylon Jennings. The album, The Lost Nashville Sessions, is made up of 15 never-released songs. The album will be available at all digital retail outlets. This is a great collection for fans who remember what country music is supposed to sound like, and particularly for those of us who miss that music! Our record collectors will be happy to learn that like so many releases these days, this one will be available on vinyl as well as CD.
The album includes covers of “Brown Eyed Handsome Man,” from Chuck Berry, and Kris Kristofferson’s “Sunday Morning Coming Down”. I think we all remember that one recorded by Johnny Cash. The songs on this album were all recorded in 1970, and were recently enhanced by Bobby Turner, the legend’s longtime steel guitar player and producer. Bobby Turner now plays with Chris Stapleton.
I’m not even going to try to write a review on this one. It’s Waylon Jennings! He’s a country music legend. he’s one of the people who has been around as long as there has been country music (or so it seems). Keeping that in mind, I think everyone knows what to expect when they pick up this new release. They can expect great country music, from a great country artist, who certainly left this world way too soon. I think we all agree that it is great to still have his music. He left us something great.
The CD is in my player now, and I think it will be spending a lot of time there. It’s a great album, and I think most fans are going to appreciate what Country Rewind Records is doing for us. Fourteen years after his death, I found a new favorite Waylon Jennings song (or maybe even more than one). I’m sure I won’t be the only one.

About Country Rewind Records: Bringing Unreleased Traditional Country Music into the Contemporary Country Era, founded by Thomas Gramuglia of Hindsight Records in 2015, Gramuglia obtained a treasure chest of unreleased recordings from recruitment radio shows form the ‘60s and ‘70s. The superb CCR collection of original master recordings contains music fro more than 100 country music legends and trendsetters (including intimate performances by country music greats such as Loretta Lynn, George Jones, Connie Smith, Faron Young, Dolly Parton, Conway Twitty and many more). These recordings were never released for commercial use. After a diligent quest to collect appropriate and legal permission from artists and/or their estates, Country Rewind Records (CRR) has now recorded and produced multiple, quintessential “must-hear” projects. With the mission to transfer these never-heard-before tracks to a high quality, state-of-the-art recording, complemented by contemporary instrumentation and background vocals, Country Rewind Records will release this historical American music to America’s music generation of the future.
