Remastered by Rob Santos, Waylon Jennings classic 1975 album "Dreaming My
Dreams" is reissued through Fat Possum Records on vinyl LP.
The album was co-produced with Jack Clement and recorded at Glaser Sound Studio
in Nashville, Tennessee, between February and July 1974. The June 1975 release
topped the Billboard's Top Country albums chart and peaked at number forty-nine
on Billboard's Top LPs & Tapes chart. It became Jennings' first album to be
certified gold by the RIAA.
Jennings was elected Male Vocalist of the Year by the Country Music Association
in 1975. Tony Glover of Rolling Stone described Jennings as "an ultimate
performer". Comparing his studio recordings with his live performances, Glover
said Jennings' work in the studio "seems to aim more for the midnight mind."
Billboard praised Jennings' blend of Country music with other genres. The review
said,"...the show belongs to Jennings' powerfully distinctive voice and the
excellent production of the artist and Jack Clement." It called the recordings a
"solid mix of ballad and rockers, some straight country and lots that cannot be
classified," and said Jennings is "one of the few artists whose voice is
"The human voice is the most important instrument at our disposal, yet it is
one of the most difficult to understand or define. You either hear it, or you
don't. It either moves you, or it leaves you cold. It has never been
successfully reproduced by an electronic synthesizer because it is more than
just a sounds...it is the soul itself.
When I listen to this album I hear the soul of Waylon Jennings, and I am moved
by what I hear. It is a beautiful soul...one that reflects the joy and the pain
of a man who has seen lots of both." - Neil Diamond
