Live from the Last of the Breed Tour Review

by Charity Stafford

In 2007, Willie Nelson collaborated with fellow country veterans Merle Haggard and Ray Price for the sadly all too true-titled THE LAST OF THE BREED. A heartfelt but surprisingly vital piece of work from these three old honky-tonkers (Price was entering his 80s at the time), this was followed by an old-time revue tour that featured all three singers, backed by the equally wizened western swing orchestra Asleep at the Wheel. A loose, good-time feel pervades the set, with all three singers in fine, clear voice throughout. Particular highlights include Price's tearjerking ballad "Make the World Go Away," a scrappy take on Hag's anthem "Mama Tried," and a sweet duet of Nelson and Haggard on "Pancho and Lefty."
