(PR) On June 20th, Rhino Records will release a Willie Nelson 3-CD boxed set, The Complete Atlantic Sessions. This 3-CD boxed set is the first to spotlight Willie's historic Atlantic output in its entirety. Disc one presents 1973's David Briggs/Arif Mardin-produced debut Shotgun Willie, remastered and expanded with 12 bonus tracks. Disc two presents Willie's first concept album, 1974's Jerry Wexler-produced Phases And Stages, remastered and expanded with ten bonus tracks. Disc three presents the Wexler-produced in-concert classic Live At The Texas Opry House, expanded with five bonus tracks.

The legendary career of Texas-born music icon Willie Nelson has spanned six decades. He first rose to fame as a Nashville-based songwriter, penning many now-timeless standards, including "Crazy," a smash hit for Patsy Cline. Feeling constrained by the Nashville establishment, Willie relocated to Austin, Texas, in the early 1970s, where the merging of rock and country audiences made a huge impression on him. He began fusing folk and roots-rock with a rebellious "outlaw" country flavor, inventing an authentic, stripped-down sound that remains vastly influential. At this pivotal point in his evolution, Willie signed to Atlantic Records, delivering two signature studio albums revered as all-time masterpieces: Shotgun Willie and Phases And Stages. This boxed set presents Live At The Texas Opry House, recorded during the same period, as a stand-alone disc for the first time ever.
