Background: Released in 1978, Stardust was the twenty-second album by Willie Nelson.
The album reached #30 on the U.S. pop charts, #1 on the U.S. country charts, and went on to sell more than 5 million copies in the U.S. alone.
The album is also highly regarded by audiophiles, as it is a particularly well-recorded album.
At the height of outlaw country, Willie Nelson pulled off perhaps the riskiest move of the entire bunch. He set aside originals, country, and folk and recorded Stardust, a collection of pop standards produced by Booker T. Jones. Well, it’s not entirely accurate to say that he put away country and folk, since these are highly idiosyncratic interpretations of “Georgia on My Mind,” “All of Me,” “Moonlight in Vermont,” and “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” blending pop, country, jazz, and folk in equal measures. It’s not that Willie makes these songs his own, it’s that he reimagines these songs in a way that nobody else could, and with his trusty touring band, he makes these versions indelible.
