This Time is an album by Waylon Jennings, released on RCA Victor in 1974, at the peak of the outlaw country movement. It features slightly more laid-back compositions than Jennings' previous album, Honky Tonk Heroes. Four of the twelve songs on the album were written by Willie Nelson and included on his Phases and Stages concept album, which was released earlier that same year. Nelson also provided vocals for This Time and co-produced the album with Jennings. The record reached #4 on the country charts, while the title track peaked at the top of the country singles charts. The album is significant, also, as it was the first time Jennings recorded a song written by Miriam Eddy, the ex-wife of producer Duane Eddy. The song, "Mona", is listed a track number eight. She and Jennings later married and she changed her professional name to Jessi Colter. The liner notes for the original release were written by John L. Smith. This Time was reissued in 1999 with five bonus tracks featuring several songs famously sung by Buddy Holly. Produced by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Duane Eddy, these tracks feature The Crickets, Holly's backing band, as musicians and backing vocalists.
