Summary

Summary

He's lost parts of three fingers, broke his back, suffered a heart attack and a quadruple bypass, had a steel plate put in his neck and 136 stitches in his head, fought drugs and booze, and buried his wife, son, and mother in the span of one year. He's Billy Joe Shaver, and he doesn't just sing outlaw countrysongs, he lives them. Here are three of his greatest albums plus a non-LP single side - everything he recorded for the Columbia label from 1981-1987.
