"Leather and Lace" is a duet album by
Waylon Jenningsand Jessi Colter, released on RCA Victorin 1981. It was the famous couple's first album together, though they had sung individual duets together prior to the release of "Leather and Lace". "You Never Can Tell (C'est la Vie)" is a well-known Chuck Berrysong. "Wild Side of Life" was released rather successfully as a single, reaching #10 on the country charts. The album itself reached #11. Although Jennings was, at the time of the album's release, most famous for his involvement with the outlaw countrymovement, "Leather and Lace" abandons the outlaw image in favor of calmer selections consisting partly of love songs.
