What the Critics Say

"Sometimes a larger-than-life author deserves a larger-than-life narrator. Willie Nelson uses his distinctive Texas drawl and unhurried pace to deliver these tales of Louis L'Amour's Old West with conviction and warmth. Some equally famous friends – Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson – perform cameos in a well-produced multicast adaptation of 'Riding for the Brand', complete with jingling spurs, war whoops, and gunshots. This collection serves as a fine introduction to L'Amour's work and includes some of his best-known pieces." (AudioFile)

Musical Interludes

What did you like best about Louis L'Amour Collection? What did you like least?

The stories were usually easy to understand and interesting as always. If you read a lot of Louis L'Amour you know that some of the books tend to be repetitious. We enjoyed the stories, and the 'dramatized' stories interesting and well done.

The one big problem my husband and I had with it was the music that would play all of a sudden, in between paragraphs maybe. We'd be listening intently and all of a sudden a guitar was strumming, sometimes louder then the book was being read. Being occasionally louder then the story was a problem, as it could possibly wake our little ones if they were asleep. Both my husband and I found the musical interludes quite annoying, and probably wouldn't have bought it if we had known they were there.

fun, shoot em up listening

Easy listening, fun and a great blast from the past. Willie Nelson narrates, but it is obvious that his mind isn't really on the reading aloud, but somewhere else. The stories are short and more along the lines of old radio, rather than on book reading. I enjoyed it, but I was also glad when it ended so I could mosey on.
