Full Nelson

The complete Willie-ography.

Ain’t it funny how time slips away? Before you know it, you’ve made two hundred albums, thirty movies, and had one amazing career. What follows is the Compleat Willie: a discography— including every U.S. album release as well as his early 45 rpm singles (before he signed with RCA in 1965)—and a filmography, featuring starring roles and bit parts. Every phase and stage of Willie Nelson.
