RCA/Legacy's 2005 release Love Songs contains 14 romantic highlights from Waylon Jennings' classic '70s recordings for RCA. During this time, Jennings was at the peak of his popularity and creativity, and while he earned a reputation for being a rough and rowdy outlaw, many of his songs had a big sentimental streak, as this collection illustrates. Many of his biggest and best songs are here -- including "We Had It All," "Dreaming My Dreams With You," "You Ask Me To," and "The Wurlitzer Prize" -- and the songs that weren't hits are strong, making this a first-rate compilation for those looking for the softer side of Waylon.
