Just when you thought tribute albums ought to be outlawed, the outlaw, Waylon Jennings, inspires the first great one in years. Two immediate must-rips on I've Always Been Crazy: John Mellencamp remaking ''Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way'' as a 1970 Stones scorcher and a Deana Carter/Sara Evans duet of ''Mammas, Don't Let Your Babies...'' so sweet it's a veritable fever dream of female forgiveness.
