  • Willie Nelson and reggae might seem at first to be an unlikely match.
  • Upon further thought, though, Nelson's laid-back sensibility, subtle
  • rhythmic lilt, and stoner image make his reggae album, COUNTRYMAN, seem in retrospect like an inevitability. Instead of adding his distinctive jazzy drawl and ragged guitar to a batch of reggae classics, though, Willie mostly keeps it country amid the Kingston grooves, delivering many of his own songs, as well a couple by Johnny Cash and reggae giant Jimmy Cliff.
  • Produced by Don Was, these tracks mostly feature L.A. session musicians doing a credible approximation of early-'70s Cliff/Toots & the
  • Maytals-style roots reggae, while Willie remains unflappable atop the
  • rhythmic change-up of the arrangements. These sessions actually sat in the can for about eight years before finally seeing the light of day, but anyone who ever wondered what bleak, ruminative Nelson chestnuts
  • such as "Darkness on the Face of the Earth" and "I've Just Destroyed
  • the World" would sound like with the added emotional contrast of a
  • bouncy reggae beat were finally sated with COUNTRYMAN's 2005 release.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[T]he universal themes of tough love, outlaw tales and spiritual devotion seem drawn across parallel lines....It's remarkably good."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[A]n affable affair, with Willie providing his nasal, agreeable, home-on-the-strange vocals while steel guitar and violins merge with reggae riddims to the rear."
