Released:
Label: Columbia Nashville
Alternately humble and majestic, beautiful and creepy, this horse opera ranks up there with Willie Nelson's finest albums. Red Headed Stranger tells the story of a murderous preacher on the run after murdering his (ex?) wife and her lover. This was a huge 1970s hit and finally established the veteran songwriter and performer as the solo star he had long deserved to be. "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" and "Remember Me (When the Candle Lights Are Gleaming)" instantly entered the pantheon of classic Nelson songs, though the entire LP shines.
