Vinyl Picks: Helping Build Your Collection, Three Records At A Time
Filed under: Vinyl Picks | Posted by:

Vinyl Picks: a weekly column were we recommend three vinyl records that every When You Awake reader should own. First up, we have Waylon Jennings with his 1973 album Honky Tonk Heroes. With the exception of two songs, the tunes were all written or co-written by the great Billy Joe Shaver and is an outlaw classic. The auction is set to end on September 29th and currently has zero bids at a $7.84 starting price. Click here to check it out.

Next up, we have Willie Nelson with his 1973 album, Shotgun WIllie. The record was his first for Atlantic and features a number of original tunes alongside covers of Leon Russell’s “A Song For You” and Bush and Stroud’s “Whiskey River.” Ebay has the Buy It Now option set up (no bidding required) for $8.00. Click here to check it out.

Lastly, we have Bobby Bare’s 1980 record, Down and Dirty. As the title would suggest the record is rough, rowdy and recorded live. The guitar solo in the middle of “Goin’ Back To Texas (One More Horses Ass)” is worth buying the entire record. Seriously—it’s dangerously good.  Amazon is currently selling used copies starting at $5.95. Click here to check it out.

Honky Tonk Heroes along with Night Life by Ray Price are the best country records ever!
