Next big thing

As far as songs go, few prove as challenging to sing as our national anthem.

It’s a technically demanding tune from first note to last, to be sure, beginning with a low bellow that quickly soars toward star-punching high notes, eventually swelling to a show-stopping crescendo that even the most seasoned performer can have trouble mastering.

Willie Nelson - Stardust: 30th Anniversary Legacy Edition

None July 10th, 2008

Sony Legacy

Willie Nelson released an album of pop standards in 1978, striking new ground for country performers. "Stardust" became an instant classic and remained on the country charts for more than a decade, etching its place onto many all-time best lists compiled by fans, magazines and newspapers.

"Stardust"'s original songs have been digitally remastered and included on a 30th anniversary edition' a new, two-disc release that also includes a bonus CD containing Nelson's version of Louis Armstrong's hit "What a Wonderful World."

"Georgia on My Mind" is an obvious standout from the original release, and the remastered version sounds great. The Irving Berlin hit "Blue Skies," which made the rounds first on the Rodgers and Hart musical "Betsy," is a classic Willie cover tune, as is his version of "Unchained Melody," and is one of the more interesting takes on the much-covered song.

"Stardust: 30th Anniversary Legacy Edition" is a terrific collection of the redheaded stranger's take on the standards, updated digitally and packaged with a cross section of lesser-known but enjoyable tunes.
