Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard – Django and Jimmie

Sometimes you have to climb above your comfort zone when it comes to collecting music. I purchased the collaboration recording of Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, Django and Jimmie. It was an impulse buy I must admit. I’m real glad I bought this Sony Legacy recording. Its undeniable top-notch stuff.

The recording mix, the session musicians, Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard’s vocals and guitar playing are an absolute delight. The mix of songs unfurled at a rhythmic pace that you’ll settle into so naturally.

There are a couple of special guests who complement Willie and Merle. I especially like “It’s All Going To Pot” sung with Jamey Johnson (who wrote the song with Buddy Cannon and Larry Shell) It was released as the first single on 420day.

Bobby Bare joins Willie and Merle on my album favorite, “Missing Ol’ Johnny Cash” written by Merle Haggard. The mutual respect will make the music of your heart smile warmly.

You’re going to treasure this 14 song masterpiece.
