With two stunning duets with Willie Nelson, the album features Asleep at the Wheel's patented take on the legacy left by Wills and other pioneering Texas players. It also features one of the very first appearances on record by Jr. Brown, now recognized as the hottest guitarist in country music.
Bandleader Ray Benson - who also talks about the record and the music on an 18 minute bonus interview track with label boss Holger Petersen - says that Pasture Prime is still one of the best records the band ever made. "This was a comeback album; we were primed when we cut it, and we're still proud of it. It's great to have it back again."
