THE VAULTS / CD REISSUES

2 Various artists' "Wanted! The Outlaws," RCA. (** 1/20

May 31, 1996|ROBERT HILBURN

In 1976 this compilation seemed a rather carelessly designed overview of country music's immensely valuable outlaw movement, but it holds a special place in the heart of Nashville because it was the first country album to sell 2 million. For this update, RCA has taken the 11 original tracks (including music by Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Jessi Colter and Tompall Glaser) and added nine more recordings from the same period. In addition, Jennings and Nelson recorded Steve Earle's "Nowhere Road." Unfortunately, the whole thing still seems rather wobbly. Instead, try individual Jennings or Nelson "best of" packages.
