WILLIE NELSON – Remember Me, Vol.1 (2011)
Not unlike its predecessor, 2010's "Country Music", "Remember Me, Vol. 1" finds Willie Nelson paying tribute to a who's who of country music tunesmiths. The difference is, while Country Music was Nelson's take on the genre's tried-and-true standards, Remember Me is an unapologetic tribute album; Nelson is tipping his hat to his heroes and friends, including Merle Haggard, George Jones, Hank Snow, Tex Williams, Kris Kristofferson and Merle Travis. The album satisfies with its exemplary performances, proving that sometimes all a great band needs are great ingredients. The only chink in the armor is Nelson himself. Guitar playing notwithstanding, Nelson's vocals sound benign on uptempo tracks like "Smoke, Smoke Smoke (That Cigarette)" and "Roly Poly." The mild voice made in country/western heaven lends itself well to the ballads on Remember Me but is otherwise overshadowed by the deft skills of Mason and Garrish. Fans of Nelson will appreciate the eclectic mix of covers on Remember Me, Vol. 1, but the dryness in Nelson's voice is bound to leave more than a few listeners cold. The album can stand on its own, thanks to its fine musicianship, but those looking for an authentic and animated Nelson performance will be disappointed. - guitarworld.com
