The Weekly Vinyl: Waylon Jennings Greatest Hits

A new weekly series for the music fan - The Weekly Vinyl.  I thought I would share some tidbits and photos inside my own personal record collection.  You never know what you might find in it!
This week is Waylon Jennings' Greatest Hits album.  It was released by RCA Records in 1979.  The album was certified by the RIAA as being platinum five times.  The interesting tidbit is that it was re-released in 1989.  The album I have is the original 1979 release. 
Producers of the album include Waylon Jennings, Chips Moman, Chet Atkins, Jack Clement, and Richie Albright.
The album peaked at the number 1 spot on the US Billboard Top Country Album Chart in 1979.  It was #28 on the US Billboard Top 200; #1 on the Canadian RPM Country Album Chart; #20 on the Canadian RPM Top Albums; and #9 on the New Zealand Albums Chart.
