Waylon at JD's is the debut album by Waylon Jennings. Though listed in several sources as a live recording, it is in fact a studio album, recorded at Arizona Recorders in Phoenix on December 4, 1964. 2000's The Restless Kid: Live At JD's (Bear Family) is a genuine JD's era live recording.

Released to capitalize on Jennings' popularity, the album was sold only at J.D. Musil's nightclub. The record sold out quickly and a new batch of albums was pressed, and those sold out as well.

In 1969, Decca Records (now part of Universal Music) purchased the rights to the album from Musil, and reissued the album in an abridged form as "Waylon Jennings" on its Vocalion label.

The songs from this album have been issued countless times on low-budget, unauthorized CDs. To date, there are only three truly authorized reissues of the "JD's" album: 1995's Clovis To Phoenix (Zu-Zazz/Bear Family), 1999's "The Journey: Destiny's Child" (Bear Family) and 2002's "Phase One: The Early Years 1959-1964" (Hip-O/Universal).
