Nelson, Willie - Red headed stranger LP
Willie Nelson never hit big time on Europe mainland (apart form a flirt w/crooner Julio Iglesias), but this album went multi-platinum in the USA, despite its inaccessibility.
'Red Headed Stranger´is a concept album about a fugitive murderer on the run. With brief and poetic lyrics no one involved in making the album predicted it would sell that well. The ´Red Headed Stranger´ became Willie Nelson's nickname.
In 1986 William Wittliff made a movie based on this record starring Willie & Morgan Fairchild.
