Giveaway Info

Townes Van Zandt was a well respected and admired icon of American songwriting. He wrote countless songs such as "Pancho and Lefty", "For the Sake of the Song", and "To Live is to Fly", which are considered masterpieces in folk music. His work has been described as melancholy and features rich, poetic lyrics. Much of his life was spent touring dive bars and living in motels. Artists like Bob Dylan, Norah Jones, Willie Nelson, Pat Green, and Counting Crows have recorded and performed his music. On January 1, 1997, Zandt passed away due to a heart attack.

Zandt sounds focused, alert, and most of all, relaxed on this latest album. He is one of the few songwriters who have written about loneliness and despair in an earnest and poetic way. "All I Need" paints a picture of a loving man, who can sometimes be difficult to love as he sings "my baby's eyes, see how they shine/ Will his life be like mine?" and "All I need is a way to take his load". On his version of "Rex's Blues", his younger voice gives a different, bluish hue on the Rex's character. The most famous in the album is "Pancho and Lefty', which is a song that has aged with it's listeners.
