I listened to Willie's Countryman reggae album recently, and it's not too bad at all. Twelve songs check in at 36 minutes. My favourites include Do You Mind Too Much If I Don't Understand, How Long Is Forever, a duet with Toots Hibbert on Johnny and June Carter-Cash's I'm A Worried Man, Willie and Ray Price's I've Just Destroyed The World, and Willie and Hank Cochran's Undo The Right. The songs that don't stand up as well are probably the two best known, covers of Jimmy Cliff's The Harder They Come and Sitting In Limbo. This album has sat in limbo since 1997, but kudos to Lost Highway for now giving
us a chance to hear it.
