Originally released in 1971, „Yesterday’s Wine“ was Willie Nelson’s final album at RCA Records, for whom he recorded between 1965 and 1971. The album also marked Willie’s farewell from Nashville–after a frustrating decade in Music City, Nelson packed up and moved back to Texas before „Yesterday’s Wine“ was released. Adding to its historical significance, „Yesterday’s Wine“ is also the first Willie Nelson ‘concept’ album and thus paved the way for „Phases And Stages“, „Red Headed Stranger“, and other Nelson classics.

Good Times is the eighth studio album by country singer Willie Nelson. Arrangements were by Anita Kerr, Bill Walker and Ray Stevens.

This is kind of an odd record. One side is very sparse instrumentally, while the other side has three different people providing arrangements. The songs are okay (maybe subpar for Nelson), with one of the most interesting being his cover of Mickey Newbury’s “Sweet Memories.” ~~ AllMusic Review by Jim Worbois

This is an appropriate collection, since Nelson has recorded more duets with more fellow performers than any other country singer in history. This runs the gamut, from traditional country singers Merle Haggard and George Jones, to soulman Ray Charles, to Latin-lover Julio Iglesias, and the rock band Santana. It even has a duet with the late Hank Williams, arranged through modern studio recording technology. ~~AllMusic Review by Tom Roland
