Waylon Jennings - Anita, You're Dreaming

Waylon Jennings sings his "Anita, You're Dreaming" from 1965. It charted in 1966 and peaked at #17 C&W. Jennings and the band sounds as if they were back in Phoenix in 1964. Would like to know if the band are the Waylors, sounds pretty much to me. Any info appreciated!

rockincat said: Yes, this is the Waylors. Thanks rockincat for the info! I think this was the line-up: Jerry Gropp (guitar), Waylon Jennings (guitar), Paul Foster (bass) and Richard Albright (drums).

Funny 'cause Bob Dylan made a "remake" of this song called To ramona the same year…

Love this beautiful song by Jennings. But actually, it was Jennings who used Dylan's song as a "blueprint" for Anita You're Dreaming. The origins of the melody date to 1937, http://www.justanothertune.com/html/toramona.html
