Review

Lefty Frizzell remains one of the most underappreciated artists in all of country-music history; therefore, it's no surprise that this little jewel of an album remains one of the most underappreciated in Nelson's vast catalog. Recorded in the peak Nelson year of 1975 (but not released until 1977), To Lefty from Willie puts his personal stamp on the Frizzell catalog while still upholding the spirit of the source material. This balancing act is tough for anyone to sustain, but Nelson has proven time and again his interpretive powers and he uses them here to great effect. With his sister Bobbie gently and elegantly dancing across the piano, he delivers some of the most moving vocals he's ever recorded, adding some delightfully understated guitar leads for good measure. Nelson's easy, natural vocal delivery--a Frizzell hallmark--is perfectly suited to these songs, and while his phrasing and tone is much different than Frizzell's was, he still hits the same emotional bull's-eyes. --Marc Greilsamer
