Willie Nelson- Opportunity To Cry



















No more tears.

The artistic and popular resurgence enjoyed by Johnny Cash at the end of his life is a rare music industry feel-good story. Meanwhile, Willie Nelson, 73, is still recording and touring with a vengeance. More than ever, he seems to be doing whatever he damn well feels like. You Don't Know Me: The Songs of Cindy Walker is one of the best releases of 2006. There's also a new essential reissue of his most celebrated music. The infamous IRS Tapes are long out-of-print. "Opportunity To Cry" packs pathos, hilarity, a rude inference and disturbing psychosis into two-and-a-half minutes. Here's to your health, Willie.

Let's hope Willie fired his hair stylist after that album cover.
