If anything, Willie overplays his hand a bit, insisting on grafting the "Phases and Stages" theme between crucial songs to the point of genuine irritation. But, pretend that never happened, erase it from your mind, and Phases and Stages is easily the equal of its remarkable predecessor, a wonderful set of music that resonates deeply, as deeply as the words. Make no mistake - the deceptively relaxed arrangements, including the occasional strings, not only highlight Nelson's clever eclecticism, but they also heighten the emotional impact of the album.

Red Headed Stranger is the eighteenth studio album by American outlaw country singer Willie Nelson and released in 1975. After the wide success of his recordings with Atlantic Records, coupled with the negotiating skills of his manager, Neil Reshen, Nelson signed a contract with Columbia Records, a label that gave him total creative control over his works

45 years ago this month, Willie Nelson released his second album for Atlantic Records, an LP which would prove to be not only his swan song for the label but, indeed, one of the last LPs to be released before Atlantic closed its Country music division. Produced by the legendary Jerry Wexler at the almost-as-legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, PHASES AND STAGES was a truly rare beast: a country music concept album, one which told the tale of a divorce first from the woman’s side (Side 1) and then from the husband’s side (Side 2). Nelson had been giddy about working. When PHASES AND STAGES was released, the first single Bloody Mary Morning was a top-20 hit on the country charts, with the second single, I Still Can’t Believe You’re Gone, also charting but stalling at #51.
