Waylon Sings Ol' Harlan is a 1967 album by Waylon Jennings on RCA Victor. It consists completely of songs by Harlan Howard.

Background[edit]

Jennings had a great affection for Howard's songs, and most of his 60's albums contain at least one song by Howard. This LP features some of Howard's most popular compositions, such as the standard "Heartaches By the Number," "Busted," (which had also been covered by Johnny Cash and Ray Charles), and two songs co-written with Buck Owens, "I've Got a Tiger By the Tail" and "Foolin' Around." It was not as successful as Jennings previous releases, peaking at #32 on the Billboard country albums chart.
