Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel – Willie and the Wheel

NAME: Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel
ALBUM: Willie and the Wheel
DATE: 7June2010

LABEL: Bismeaux Records

RATING: 4/5

FIVE WORD REVIEW: Surprisingly solid country blues entertainment

LOCATION: Texas, USA

LINE UP: Willie Nelson (vocals) / Dave Sanger (drums) / Dave Miller & Kevin Smith (Bass) / Floyd Domino & John Michael Whitby (Piano) / Jason Roberts (Fiddle, electric mandolin, vocals) / Eddie Rivers (steel guitars) / Ray Benson (Acoustic/electric guitars, vocals) / Elizabeth McQueen (vocals) / Sam Siefert (acoustic guitar) / Dave Alexander (Trumpet) / Mike Mordecai (Trombone) / Jonathan Doyle (Clarinet) / Paul Shaffer (piano) / Vince Gill (Electric Guitar)

WHAT’S THE STORY?: The late Jerry Wexler’s ultimate playlist made for Willie Nelson recorded with Asleep at the Wheel backing the country legend. Some classic tunes that would do Willie Dixon proud compiled seamlessly.

SOUNDS LIKE: Grassroots country blues. “Hesitation Blues” sounds like a jazz big band whist strolling through the park, “Fan it” sounds like Etta James in Hawaii, Sittin’ on Top of the World is one of the best covers of this track I’ve heard!

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: Blues, country, bluegrass, easy listening and good times music.
