    Full title: Lonesome, On'ry And Mean: A Tribute To Waylon Jennings.
    Compilation producers: Chuck Mead, Dave Roe, Scott Robinson, Dan Herrington.
    Tribute albums are the way many listeners are introduced to veteran artists, and 2003's Lonesome, On'ry and Mean: A Tribute to Waylon Jennings -- released roughly a year after Jennings' death -- serves as an introduction and tribute to one of the greats of both country music and American popular music in the 20th century. Some of the songs are performed by Waylon colleagues (Kris Kristofferson on "I Do Believe") or designed as replicas (Junior Brown's "Nashville Rebel") or even sung by their songwriters (Jack Clement's "Let's All Help the Cowboys [Sing the Blues]"). There's no shortage of love for Waylon here. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

  • Critic Reviews

    Entertainment Weekly (4/18/03, p.71) - "...Perfect for melancholy night drives, although Norah Jones' 'Wurlitzer Prize' will make you so weepy, you may crash your pickup..." - Rating: B+
    Mojo (Publisher) (4/04, p.109) - 4 stars out of 5 - "This stands head and shoulders above the average tribute album."
