Willie Wants to Dance
Willie Nelson – Let’s Face the Music and Dance (Sony Legacy)
Willie Nelson’s new CD has 14 tunes for your listening pleasure and it’s available for eleven bucks at Amazon. This is reminiscent of his 1970’s albums that featured country music mixed with the classic adult standards of the past. Here’s why.
Among the compilation, the title cut, Irving Berlin’s Let’s Face the Music and Dance, introduced by Fred Astaire in 1936. The 1964 Beatles hit, Matchbox, composed and originally released by Carl Perkins. Twilight Time, best known by the Platters but composed by their manager, Buck Ram and originally a hit for Les Brown and his Band of Renown in the 1940’s.
Taste of Country is currently streaming the CD online.
Others releasing new music tomorrow include:
Steve Earle – The Low Highway (New West)
Marcy Marxer – Things Are Coming My Way (Community Music)
Kim Richey – Thorn In My Heart (Yep Roc)
