Ten Pence Specials - Waylon Jennings


2024 Charity Shop Purchases #28 - Waylon Jennings - The Taker /Tulsa

I would have been a fool to turn down a Waylon Jennings. CD for 10p. Indeed anyone would be a fool to turn down a Waylon Jennings CD for 10p 

It is not a two albums on one CD, as I initially thought, but a studio album originally released on RCA Nashville  in 1971.The CD version is from Sony BMG Music Entertainment from 1971.

The Taker written by Kris Kristofferson and Shel Silverstein was a top 5 single with the album reaching #12 on the Billboard Country Charts. It is one four songs written by  Kristofferson which appear on the record.

It is not a bad album but is not a patch on the other one of his that I have 1966's Leavin' Town. Still in is still well worth 10p of anyone's money.

There is a note on the CD sleeve that states  FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: Unauthorised copying is punishable under federal law. You have been warned!



  1. warning noted, neither will appear on vol. 218

  2. These tracks are passable - by 'eck that Taker chap is a cad and no mistake. But I'm more interested in the mechanics of how you pay for these 10p CDs. Do you pay by card? If you pay cash do you hand over the exact money? or if you proffer say a 20p piece do you wait for the change and then a) pocket it or b) assume an air of congenial benevolence and tell them to keep it? Furthermore........(sorry but I'm fascinated by this) I wonder how these charity shops decided on a tarrif of 10p in the first place and not say 25p or 50p! I may lose sleep tonight over these ruminations.

  3. We bought about 6 in total and I very generously gave them a pound!
