Willie Nelson's Stardust Album
Willie Nelson is the composer of Patsy Cline's deeply personal hit 'Crazy'. His love of romantic songs led him in 1978 to record the album Stardust. It was an instant success going quadruple platinum. Suddenly the singer-guitarist with the singular, just-ahead-of-the-beat delivery, was seen as a wonderful new interpreter of the Great American Songbook. "These are my favourite songs, my favourite all-time songs," Willie Nelson, 66, said in 1999 when the album was re-issued. "I knew there were millions of people who liked these songs, and would love to hear them again. From the older people who remember these songs, to the ones who never heard them before....a great song is still a great song."
In his show, Michael Whittaker sings all the tracks of the album: Stardust, Georgia on my Mind, Blue Skies, All of Me, Unchained Melody, September Song, On the Sunny Side of the Street, Moonlight in Vermont, Don't Get Around Much Anymore and Someone to Watch Over Me.
