AllMusic Review by

Part of a collection of demo tapes that Willie Nelson recorded in the early 1960s, this compilation features the country outlaw performing tear-jerking songs like "Both Ends of the Cradle," "Pride Wins Again," and "The Storm Has Just Begun." The backing is authentically rough and ready, and Nelson's voice is steeped in heartache, but though the recently dumped may find solace here, this set isn't recommended for the chronically depressed.
