Willie Nelson's 1975 release, Red Headed Stranger was a concept album about a fugitive preacher wanted by the law for killing his wife. The self-produced Western saga served as Willie's rally against the status quo of country music and it was here that the outlaw image he would become famous for truly emerged. Nelson's brilliant blend of originals and vintage material proved to be a career defining breakthrough for the country legend and one of country music's all time classics. Highlights include Blue Eyes Cryin' In The Rain and Remember Me among others.
Legacy Recordings has gone to great lengths to present this classic album exactly the way it was originally intended, with all the warmth and nuance that only vinyl can offer!

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in
true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an
analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is
then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end
(or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any
digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before
they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is
altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity
means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the
original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was
intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for
the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
