LINER NOTES

Take It to the Limit is an album by Willie Nelson with Waylon Jennings, released in 1983 on Columbia Records. The odd-numbered tracks on the album are Nelson-Jennings duets; the even-numbered tracks are Nelson solos. The title song was originally sung by the Eagles, while “Homeward Bound” was originally by Simon and Garfunkel. Take It to the Limit was the next-to-last collaboration between Jennings and Nelson; of the four duets albums released by the singers, Waylon & Willie achieved the greatest success. Despite the fact that neither singer was in top artistic form and Jennings’ most successful days were already over, the record managed to chart, peaking at #3 on the country charts, not unlike WWII, the two performers’ previous album recorded together. “Why Do I Have to Choose” also reached #3, while the title track reached #8 on the singles charts.
