• Teatro: The Complete Sessions [CD+DVD] - Willie Nelson

All Regions DVD

Location is everything. When Willie Nelson and album producer Daniel Lanois set out to create a cinematic-sounding album, Teatro, they took over a disused movie theatre in Oxnard, California, and pictured it's dusty glory on the cover art. 

Recorded as-live in situ amid the red velvet seats, Teatro sees Nelson working extensively with his frequent collaborator Emmylou Harris, who joins him for duets and on backing vocals. The other major player is Daniel Lanois, who produces the album, plays guitar and bass, took the cover photo and wrote one of the album's songs, The Maker, a stunning performance with glacier-thick vibe. 

Reinvention is key on Teatro, with Nelson revisiting a number of songs he first wrote in the 1960s. Though the songs are familiar, the sounds aren't: Teatro found Nelson experimenting with rhythms and flavours as never before, from the Spanish-influenced Darkness On The Face Of The Earth to the double-drum-kit percussive groove of My Own Peculiar Way

Originally released by Island Record in 1998, Teatro is issued here for the first time as a double disc set, including the original album plus 7 unreleased bonus tracks from the sessions. Disc two is a complete live performance of the album, directed by Wim Wenders, filmed during the album recording sessions and available here for the first time on DVD.
