Country Willie is a 1975 compilation album by country singer Willie Nelson. It was issued by United Artists Records, the successor label to Liberty Records.

Background

In 1975, despite recording for Liberty, Monument, RCA and Atlantic, Willie Nelson had finally found major mainstream success as a recording artist. As RCA did after Willie signed with Atlantic, United Artists Records began reissuing Willie Nelson tracks it had in their vaults.

The first reissue from United Artists, The Best Of Willie Nelson, was a reconfigured version of his 1962 debut for Liberty, ...And Then I Wrote, with "Half A Man", from his second Liberty album, Here's Willie Nelson, added. For this album, United Artists gathered six previously unreleased songs, two songs from Here's Willie Nelson, and two songs issued only as singles. Among the unreleased songs was a duet with his then-wife, Shirley Collie: "Columbus Stockade Blues". Unfortunately, she is not credited on the LP.

Despite not charting, this album was reissued at least twice in the 1980s: by a newly reactivated Liberty Records around 1980 (LN-10013), and on CD (alongside The Best Of Willie Nelson) by EMI-Manhattan in 1988 (CDP7 48399 2).

The album has not been reissued in this form since. However, the songs themselves have been reissued on various compilation albums.
