Willie Nelson Remember Me, Vol. 1
Release Date: November 22, 2011
Label: R&J Records
Remember Me, Vol. 1 is exactly what its title portends it to be - the first set in a series of brand new recordings from WIllie Nelson, recorded with his long-time friend and acclaimed producer James Stroud. Nelson hand-selected many of his very favorite Billboard country and folk hits from the last 70 years for these special sessions. Included here are classics from Johnny Cash ('Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down'), George Jones ('Why Baby Why'), Merle Haggard ('Today I Started Loving You Again'), Ray Price ('Release Me') and Porter Wagoner ('A Satisfied Mind').
Each of the fourteen tracks on Remember Me, Vol. 1 was a Top 10 Billboard hit, while over half of them reached #1. The album is a veritable jukebox of the history of country music, interpreted as only Willie Nelson can.
