This album was released in 1981, and in my point of view its the quintessential Willie Nelson live album. He plays all of his hits and has a few guest stars join him. I had the luxury of seeing Willie Nelson a few years ago in Charlotte in a small intimate venue and he puts on an amazing live show. If you don’t own this album I highly recommend it, its a classic. The cover features a live photograph of Willie and his guitar trigger with the Austin City Limits logo in the top left hand corner. I stitched Willie in swirling free motion stitches in multiple shades of grey, black and white thread. Each stitch was hand placed and there are over 75,000 stitches in the design. The logo was created as a patch and mounted onto the album as a final step.
