willie nelson - you don't know me

on march 14th, willie nelson will be releasing a collection of his renditions of songs originally by cindy walker entitled "you don't know me: the songs of cindy walker" (lost highway). for the backing band on the album, willie got a talented group of nashville session players to help make the songs his own. if you don't know who cindy walker is, she's probably best known for the song i'm posting which was later made famous by the likes of ray charles and elvis presley. have a listen to willie's version.

If you are not already familiar with it, you need to search out a copy of Charlie Rich's last LP "Pictures & Paintings" which has a very soulful version of You Don't Know Me". The whole cd is the jazz album he always wanted to make, sadly he passed away three years later. Nice job Willie!
