Country never produced a platinum LP until 1976, when RCA took 11 previously released tracks, gave the mishmash a sexy name, and wham — instant image! Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson became household names (even if Jessi Colter and Tompall Glaser faded). This 20th-anniversary package of Wanted! The Outlaws adds nine cuts understandably left off the original, but there’s a smokin’ new Waylon/Willie duet, ”Nowhere Road,” on which the two rock harder than most stars half their age.
