For a few years in the early eighties WILLIE NILE had “the next big thing” all over him, and he seemed destined for the big time.
NILE made three albums- two for Arista and one for Columbia all featured here on this 2 CD set released at MID PRICE. This collection features 42 songs from 1980’s Willie Nile, 1981’s Golden Down, and 191’s Places I Have Never Been, all in their original sequence. Musicians featured ont his collection include ROGER McGUINN, RICHARD THOMPSON, ROBBIE McINTOSH, TERRE and SUZZY ROACHE. Repackaged with new liner notes, this set makes three solid albums available again.
