AllMusic Review by

This collection of Willie Nelson originals comprises demos, songs recorded in the early 1960s when the artist was trying to make it as a solo performer, and recordings made in Nashville in the early '70s, just before he left town for good. Spanning both raw yet vital recordings of songs like ""Both Ends of the Candle" and "Undo the Wrong," and sophisticated, jazzy versions of "Night Life" and "I Didn't Sleep a Wink," this 20-track compilation displays how well Nelson's material holds up no matter what its setting.
