Western • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Sometimes a larger-than-life author deserves a larger-than-life narrator. Willie Nelson uses his distinctive Texas drawl and unhurried pace to deliver these tales of Louis L'Amour's Old West with conviction and warmth. Some equally famous friends--Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson--perform cameos in a well-produced multicast adaptation of RIDING FOR THE BRAND, complete with jingling spurs, war whoops, and gunshots. This collection serves as a fine introduction to L'Amour's work and includes some of his best-known pieces, such as DUTCHMAN'S FLAT and MISTAKES CAN KILL YOU. With Willie talking, one can understand why "country" and "western" are often mentioned in the same breath. B.P. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
