Waylon never took much to the Outlaw label, although he looked and acted every bit the part. But his insistence on artistic control, recording with his own band, and writing or choosing his own songs blazed a trail for many younger artists to follow. When Hoss hit the stage with The Waylors, it might as well have been midnight in a Texas roadhouse for all anybody could tell.
Recorded on April 1, 1989 this performance by Waylon Jennings was no April Fool's joke. This was the "new" Waylon, both personally and professionally. He had kicked a 20-year drug habit, split with RCA and signed a new deal with MCA Records. He discovered a passion for songwriting, teamed with legendary produced Jimmy Bowen, and produced some of the best work of his 30-year-plus career. He credited his wife and soul mate, Jessi Colter, for much of his inspiration.
This was Waylon's second trip to the ACL stage, but the one that best captures the raw edge and driving urgency that pushed country music way past its Nashville boundaries starting in the mid 1970's.
