Willie Nelson was better known as a highly successful composer of some of Nashville's most deeply personal songs ("Hello, Walls," "Crazy," "Night Life") and as one of the Texas-based "outlaws" of country music when, in 1978, he undertook what seemed like a most unlikely project. Nelson, with his superlative band in tow, elected to record an entire album of some of the Tin Pan Alley classics with which he'd grown up. The results were phenomenal -- Stardust, produced by Booker T. Jones (of Booker T. and the MGs fame) was an instant smash, eventually going quadruple-platinum. This recording has been mastered by the K2 HD format of 24-bit 100kHz, which creates an unbelievable sound surpassing other formats. This K2 HD Mastering CD will play on all CD players.
