Legacy's 2010 collection The Essential Highwaymen
doesn't merely cover recordings made by the supergroup of Willie Nelson
, Waylon Jennings
, Johnny Cash
, and Kris Kristofferson
, it rounds up selections from their solo albums of the '70s, '80s, '90s, and 2000s. Specifically, these selections are written by other members of the group, so the net effect is a generous 36-track collection of Highwaymen
highlights in all forms, drawing a more detailed portrait of their crossed paths than any individual album by the supergroup.
