Consumer Guide Album

Waylon Jennings: Lonesome, On'ry and Mean [RCA Victor, 1973]
I can't say for sure whether it's him or me, but Waylon doesn't sound anywhere near so . . . strained this time out. Maybe it's just "Sandy Sends Her Best," as powerful a song about the guilty good will on the hurting side of a breakup as you'll ever hear. Still a touch or four melodramatic, though. B
