By 1978 Waylon Jennings had been through the wringer with his position as one of the most visible "outlaw" country stars: he'd been busted for drugs and was addicted to both cocaine and alcohol and was tired of the hype surrounding Nashville's co-opting what he, Willie Nelson, and a handful of others started in the name of greater artistic control. I've Always Been Crazy is his first "political" statement about his feelings. And while it may not be as great an album as Ol' Waylon or Dreaming My Dreams, it's still a fine one. With a cast of players that includes the great Tony Joe White, Ralph Mooney, Carter Robertson, Reggie Young, and Bee Spears, the band assembled here smokes. In addition to the title track, this set also features the classic "Don't You Think This Outlaw Bit's Done Got Outta Hand." But even though these two cuts would have been worth the purchase of the album, the rest is nothing to dismiss. There are fine covers of a medley of Buddy Holly hits, a poignant, barely disguised ode to old friend and rambling mate Billy Joe Shaver, the glorious "A Long Time Ago," and the outlaw shuffle "As the 'Billy World Turns." There are also fine, heartfelt covers of Merle Haggard's "Tonight the Bottle Let Me Down" and Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line." The set closes with a pair of ballads, which is uncharacteristic of Jennings during this period; there's "Girl I Can Tell (You're Trying to Work It Out)," with its folk song melody and country music bridge. And finally, the four-and-a-half-minute "Whistlers and Jugglers," a broken love song by Shel Silverstein that talks of surrender and loss so poignant and sharp, it numbers among Jennings' finer performances of the late '70s. In all, I've Always Been Crazy is a solid recording, still possessing the piss and vinegar of Jennings' best work with a deeper lyrical edge on most tracks. In fact, despite its obvious origins, the Holly medley is the only thing that keeps the album from being as stellar as the aforementioned ones. Nonetheless, this is necessary for any fan of outlaw country in general and Jennings in particular. As a perverse side note, it inexplicably took BMG until 2004 to issue this record on CD.

Outlaw Country: Revolte in Nashville

In den frühen 1970er Jahren brachte eine Gruppe von Abtrünnigen den Country von Nashville, seine Codes, seine Richtlinien, seine reibungslosen Produktionen und Klischees zum stürzen. Angeführt von Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson und einigen anderen langhaarigen Wilden, flöst diese Outlaw-Revolte ein wenig Rock'n'Roll in ein konservatives Genre ein.

Die Pioniere des Rock'n'Roll der 50s

Der Rock'n'Roll ist nicht tot. Aber seine Pioniere, die heute noch leben, kann man an zwei Fingern einer Hand abzählen: Jerry Lee Lewis und Wanda Jackson. 84 und 82 Jahre alt. Er, ein ungestümer Hitzkopf aus dem Hause Sun Records, der Geschichte schrieb, indem er sein Instrument in Brand setzte und Gospel, Country und Boogie-Woogie in einen höllischen Rock'n'Roll verwandelte. Sie, eine Country-Sängerin, die an der Seite von Elvis ihr großes Rock'n'Roll-Abenteuer erlebte. Von Little Richard bis Chuck Berry, über Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Bo Diddley, Bill Haley, Elvis Presley, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly und Hank Williams – Qobuz würdigt die Wegbereiter des Rock.

J.J. Cale und sein abgeklärter Blues

Auch mehr als fünf Jahre nach J.J. Cales Tod ist es unmöglich, von seiner Musik abzulassen. Er, der von Clapton verehrt wurde, verbrachte einen Teil seines Lebens in einem Mobilheim, und auch heute noch gilt er mit seiner atypischen Kombination aus Blues, Folk, Country und Jazz als einer der einflussreichsten Außenseiter des Rock.
