Stardust - Willie Nelson (the album, 1978)

 

Some interesting trivia - - - According to Wikipedia, record executives were skeptical when Nelson came up with the idea of reviving his favorite standards for an album. This was a significant departure from his well established "outlaw" brand that had been very successful. Nelson recruited Booker T. Jones to produce the album, which was completed in 10 days, and released in April 1978. That same year it was certified platinum, then triple platinum in 1984, and quintuple platinum in 2002. In 2015, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

I definitely agree with you. I couldn't make it through some days without my music.

I'll be posting more.

Yes.  I am seeing songs also that I forgot about.  Who didn't sing along with "Fooled around and fell in love" or "Mustang Sally", another one of my favs.  Best music ever.  "You got me going in circles" was another one.  We could be here for months!
