Picks and Pans Review: Black on Black
Jennings has reshuffled his band—drummer Richie Albright was among those shuffled out—but doesn't seem to have done much damage to his growly sound. On this LP, he handles three standbys nicely—Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues, Hank Williams' Honky Tonk Blues and Rodney Crowell's Song for the Life. There's also a welcome assortment of new tunes, including Just to Satisfy You, another duet with Willie Nelson; an inoffensive novelty, May I Borrow Some Sugar From You, by Bobby Emmons and Chips Moman, and Jennings' own Shine. Waylon makes few mistakes, in choice of material or otherwise.
