Our Daily Vinyl #10: Willie Nelson

It is a sad but true fact of life that I once derisively mocked anyone who opined how amazing vinyl was and how music just sounded better when played on a turntable. Now, in a somewhat ironic twist of fate, I’ve come to realize, well, it’s true.

When it comes to The Diamond Center, I've always got the time, even if you don't got the money, honey. And both of us have the time for the one and only Willie Nelson. The red-headed stranger has worked his charms on the themselves charming lead duo of Brandi Price and Kyle Harris, and here's why the pair chose to include Willie when I rummaged through their records a few months back:

"Willie Nelson -
Phases and Stages - This record is SO good. It was his pre Red Headed Stranger concept album about a dissolving marriage, one side is from the female's point of view, male's on the other."

I don't have this one myself, but it's on my (mile-and-a-half) long list of records I need. Which, incidentally, seems to get bigger each and every day.
