Some folks will spend the summer blasting Ashanti or Justin Timberlake out of the boom box. But for those of us who prefer a bourbon-sipping backyard barbecue to a beer-drenched weekend at the beach, Willie Nelson and Ray Price’s modest, 31-minute curiosity, Run That By Me One More Time, will likely live near the top of the warm-weather CD stack. A pair of old-time Austin class acts, Nelson and Price go way back — Ray’s 1963 recording of ”Nightlife” gave Willie one of his first songwriting hits — and you can hear that comfortable familiarity when they wrap their well-worn voices around these 11 new recordings of sunbaked old duets like ”I’m Still Not Over You” and ”I’ve Just Destroyed the World I’m Living In.” Garnished with sweetly sawing fiddles and Nelson’s gentlemanly acoustic guitar, the out-of-time ”Time” has the gentle sway of a weathered porch swing.
