The youthful, sinister Waylon Jennings

Another masterpiece from '66, written by Mel Tillis, covered a couple of years later by those filthy hippies in the The Flying Burrito Brothers (see Live at the Avalon 1969, released by Amoeba Records in 2007). That white Tele looks an awful lot like the same one he played for his entire career, minus the leather saddle accoutrements. Guitar nerds, a little help here?

This marks the first time in recorded history the words "Waylon Jennings" and "accoutrements" have ever appeared in the same space.
