Shelfari edited the description of Remember Me 1 Monday, April 16, 2012.
Remember Me, Vol. 1 is exactly what its title portends it to be - the first set in a series of brand new recordings from Willie Nelson, recorded with his long-time friend and acclaimed producer James Stroud. Nelson hand-selected many of his very favorite Billboard country and folk hits from the last 70 years for these special sessions. Included here are classics from Johnny Cash ( Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down ), George Jones ( Why Baby Why ), Merle Haggard ( Today I Started Loving You Again ), Ray Price ( Release Me ) and Porter Wagoner ( A Satisfied Mind ). Each of the fourteen tracks on Remember Me, Vol. 1 was a Top 10 Billboard hit, while over half of them went #1. The album is a veritable jukebox of the history of country music, interpreted as only Willie Nelson can. Look for Remember Me, Vol. 2 in the Spring of 2012.
