#NowSpinning Red Headed Stranger by #WillieNelson
Saw this classic hanging out at End of an Ear in Austin on Record Store Day literally the day after seeing Willie! Knew I had to get it at that moment. Glad I out back some mediocre RSD releases to snag this instead.
Willie's first release on Columbia Records showcased his songwriting skills by limiting the production that was all over the RCA and Atlantic releases prior. It's a lovely concept album about a man committing double murder on his wife and her lover. While escaping, the man rides away on the horse that belonged to his wife. He then murders another lady who tries to touch said horse. The man goes on to meet a new love in Denver and claims his vows with his former wife are over and can go on living his life. Crazy.
