Back in 1979 Willie Nelson teamed up with the late great Leon Russell to record an album of songs that these days would be described as coming from the Great American Songbook. Included is Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel", the traditional Irish "Danny Boy"and many others.
Strangely out of print for some time this is a great addition to the catalogues of both these great Artists. Willie and Leon were both known for their sharp interpretations of other people’s material and this set has been described as having " Mellow charm and a priceless gem for fans of both artists".
