Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard | Django And Jimmie | 2xLP

  • $ 36.98

Django & Jimmie, the new studio album collaboration from Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, two of the founding fathers of American outlaw country music. The legendary singer-songwriters join forces and reignite the musical chemistry that made Pancho & Lefty a honky-tonk blockbuster and America’s #1 Country Album following its release in January 1983. The success of Pancho & Lefty opened the doors for a number of successful follow-up projects including 1987’s Seashores Of Old Mexico album, 2007’s Last Of The Breed, with Ray Price.

Django & Jimmie premieres 14 brand-new studio recordings including: “Django & Jimmie,” a duel tribute to jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt and Jimmie Rodgers, country music’s mythic “Singing Brakeman”; “It’s All Going To Pot,” a rollicking anthem for the emerging 21st century cannabis culture; the reflective and meditative “Live This Long”; “Missing Ol’ Johnny Cash,” a homage to country music’s original Man in Black featuring guest vocals from Bobby Bare; a sublime interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”; and the future country classic “Unfair Weather Friend,”

Among the 14 essential recordings on Django & Jimmie, Nelson and Haggard each pay musical tribute to the other through heartfelt solo performances: Willie singing Merle’s “Somewhere Between” and Merle covering Willie’s “Family Bible.”
