In 1976, Wanted! The Outlaws assembled the best of the Outlaw Movement in the studio, with Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Jessi Colter and Tompall Glaser lending some of their best material to the compilation. But a new recording of Jennings on tour in 1979 captures the outlaw attitude live onstage. An exclusive release for Black Friday Record Store Day (November 27th), the special 12″ vinyl is a full Jennings concert from Omaha and includes a barnstorming version of “Don’t You Think This Outlaw Bit’s Done Got Out of Hand.” (Listen to the track below). Readers’ 10 Favorite Waylon Jennings Songs Assembled by Jennings and Colter’s son, Shooter Jennings, for his Black Country Rock boutique label, Waylon Jennings Live in Concert: Volume 2 was recorded the year the younger Jennings was born. “It’s from Omaha in ’79 and I just feel like he had an energy and attitude that was so badass,” Jennings tells Rolling Stone Country . “It also is probably the best showcase of his guitar playing on a live record to date. . . This was the peak of the Outlaw Movement and the peak of his popularity and it really shows it.” Along with the Waylon Jennings Live album, Jennings is releasing two other discs for Record Store Day: a recording by Internet personality the Angry Granpa, and “A Civilized Hell,” a collaboration between Jennings and another son of a seminal outlaw, Lukas Nelson. In March, Jennings will release his new album Countach (For Giorgio) , a tribute to electronic-music visionary Giorgio Moroder
