Pretty Paper

1979: Pretty Paper

Willie Nelson penned the title track to his first Christmas album back in 1963. Pretty Paper was recorded by Roy Orbison and became a holiday hit. Some sixteen years later, Nelson made his own recording of the hit, using it to open his yuletide collection. With the exception of the final track, the remainder of the album is a series of traditional favourites in Nelson’s laid-back style. The album closes with what is arguably its best track; the grooving original Christmas Blues. Tracks from Pretty Paper continue to garner air play each Christmas, appearing on numerous compilation albums including Welcome to Country Christmas, A Christmas Present From Willie, and even a Christmas karaoke album for those wanting to channel the great man this December.
