Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings: Waylon & Willie (RCA)

Mitchell Cohen, Creem, April 1978

'PICK UP The Tempo' again. 'It's Not Supposed To Be That Way' again. Tracking these guys separately or in tandem means a hell of a lot of comparative listening, like Bird variations on 'Just Friends', and they're not even dead yet. Plus: a song with "cowboys" in the title and two duets on post-matinee idoldom (decidedly substandard) Kristofferson songs.

Total word count of piece: 553
