"To Lefty From Willie" is an affectionate and thoroughly enjoyable salute to Lefty Frizzell, featuring stellar versions of a number of Lefty's best-known songs – including "Always Late (With Your Kisses)," "She's Gone, Gone, Gone," "I Never Go Around Mirrors," and "That's the Way Love Goes" – plus revealing takes on a number of obscurities from the influential vocalist's catalog. Nelson is respectful without being overly reverential, giving his own spin to each song without abandoning their honky tonk roots.( Stephen Thomas Erlewine - AllMusic Guide )

Ronnie Dyson was a Broadway star before making records. He was born in Washington D.C., but grew up in New York, taking to the stage in 1960s and ultimately voicing one of the decades best known show tunes Aquarius. He was just 18 when he joined the cast of Hair with a lead role in the show. Ronnie also featured in a movie Putney Swope in 1969 before signing to Columbia Records the following year. The albums we present here were Ronnies third and fourth for the label and represent the complete set of songs recorded by the artist produced by Chuck Jackson and Marvin Yancy. The style was a departure from what Ronnie had recorded previously but similar to the sound the producers had brought to hits for Natalie Cole. Listen to Natalies song This Will Be from 1975 and compare with Ronnies single Close To You in 1976, the year in fact that Marvin Yancy married Natalie Cole. Lush arrangements by Gene Page and Richard Evans determine this music definitive luxury soul, Theres also some incredible 70s soul music here thats been preserved from the original master tapes and brought on CD for the first time.
