Description

Stardust received positive reviews from most publications, both on its original release and for its various reissues. Rolling Stone praised the album: “For all the sleek sophistication of the material, Stardust is as down-home as the Legion dance. Heard coast to coast in lounges and on elevator soundtracks, these tunes have become part of the folk music of exurban America. And that’s the way Nelson plays them—spare and simple, with a jump band’s verve and a storyteller’s love of a good tale. By offering these songs, he’s displaying the tools of a journeyman musician’s trade—worn smooth and polished by constant use—and when he lays them out this way, they kind of look like works of art. Willie Nelson may be acknowledging both his own and country music’s debt to Broadway and Tin Pan Alley, but he’s also showing these hallowed musical institutions how the country makes their music its own”.
