Old 97’s and Waylon Jennings: E.P.
Old 97’s and Waylon Jennings
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Those late to the Record Store Day game of limited edition releases, or who don’t own a turntable, are now in luck. The vinyl 4 track, double 7” EP of the Old 97’s and Jennings recorded back in 1996 is finally available on CD. Better still, it comes with two more previously unreleased cuts, rare 97’s demos from the same year, added to sweeten the deal.
Apparently Jennings, who was in poor health at the time, objected to the cover art of a drawing of the members of the Old 97’s, with angel wings sprouting from their heads, circling a large center painting of Jennings. Hence, the music stayed locked away until Jennings’ son Shooter approved the limited release vinyl package for April 2013’s Record Store Day.
