Folk Country/Waylon Sings Ol' Harlan

by: Waylon Jennings

Album Artwork

(Collector's Choice Music)

Folk Country counted as Waylon Jennings’ debut RCA release. RCA wanted to lure the folk crowd, but Jennings remained country on these songs. Four of the compositions were originals, four were Harlan Howard songs and three were credited to Don Bowman.

Produced by Chet Atkins, Folk Country contained Jennings’ fitsr hit—“That’s The Chance I’ll Have To Take”. “Stop The world” retains the classic country twangs, but Jennings’ resonating voice indicates he was ascending. “Cindy of New Orleans” proved Jennings’ songwriting abilities were formidable.

“Down Came The World” is a song that contained textbook Nashville formula Jennings railed against in his later years. “I’m A Man of Constant Sorrow, another lyrical testament to Jennings’ talents, but somehow the punch gets lost in the Nashville background singers syrup. However, the seeds of greatness were planted…

Waylon Sings Ol’ Harlan was recorded in 1966. Harlan Howard, one of country’s preeminent writers, composed over 4,000 songs. Ray Price, Buck Owens, Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves and Conway Twitty were some of the musicians who scored hits from Howard’s songs.

In the liner notes of this re-issue, Jennings revealed where he was at during this time period in his career: “I was writing more and more. Harlan talked constantly about the craft. He didn’t like near rhymes. He was a craftsman. He was particularly fond of titles. Harlon thought that if you heard a song on the radio and the disc-jockey didn’t tell you who it was, you should be able to guess the title and head immediately to the nearest record store…”

In the album’s original liner notes, Howard wrote this about the rising star of Jennings: “Recently Waylon quit his job on Phoenix, Arizona, to move to Nashville and to start working shows throughout the country. And the public’s response to Waylon and the ‘Waylors’ has certainly been enthusiastic, as is seen by the success of his recordings, public appearances movies and writing. Also on the horizon for Waylon are a country TV show of his own and several movie roles.”

The highlights of this cover album include “She Called Me Baby”, “Sunset and Vine”, “The Everglades”, “Beautiful Annabel Lee”, “Heartaches By The Number” and “Tiger By The Tail”. This double re-issue reveals the early glimmers of Waylon Jennings’ great light.

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
