Description

This self-titled album is a landmark. It was recorded on Leon Russell’s Shelter label in 1972, and Russell sat in on piano. Willis Alan Ramsey is a cult legend among fans of Americana and Texas Country. Covered by numerous artists who cut versions of Ramsey’s songs, including Widespread Panic with “Geraldine & The Honey Bee”, Jerry Jeff Walker, “Northeast Texas Women”, Waylon Jennings & Shawn Colvin both did “Satin Sheets”, Jimmy Buffett “The Ballad Of Spider John”, and “Muskrat Candlelight” was covered by the band America and by Captain & Tennille, both using the title “Muskrat Love.” This recording is a real treasure. All the songs on this album have truly stood the test of time!
