Old 97's & Waylon Jennings


Imagine if Waylon Jennings came to see your band. Imagine if Waylon Jennings liked your band. Liked them enough to talk you up in press like The Austin Chronicle. Imagine your A&R guy telling you to write Waylon to thank him and see if he wanted to record some music with you. Imagine if Waylon said yes. Waylon Jennings attended an Old 97 s gig in 1996, and later that year joined Ken Bethea, Murry Hammond, Rhett Miller and Philip Peeples in a studio in Nashville to cut two tracks. The youthful energy of Old 97 s with the classic delivery of Waylon Jennings. Sadly, Waylon passed away and these recordings some of Jennings last never saw the light of day. Until now. Omnivore Recordings is proud to announce the first ever release of those two songs, Iron Road and The Other Shoe. Iron Road would eventually arrive as a live version on 2005 s Alive & Wired along with The Other Shoe (which first appeared on Old 97 s second album, 1995 s Wreck Your Life.) To make it even more special, we re adding two more previously unissued demos: Visiting Hours (a live version appeared on 2011 s The Grand Theater Vol. 2) and Fireflies (re-recorded by Rhett Miller for his acclaimed 2006 solo album The Believer.) These four songs will be available on double colored vinyl 7" set, packed in a gatefold sleeve with art from Jon Langford (of The Mekons & Waco Brothers, and renowned painter of Country Music icons) and insightful and hilarious liners from the band s Rhett Miller, which put you right there in the studio. The package also includes a download card, offering digital files of the four tracks. Alt-Country, Outlaw Country, or just plain Awesome Country, the Old 97 s & Waylon Jennings single is a must for fans of any or all of those genres. These historical documents finally see the light, 17 years after being recorded!
