townes van zant
The Townes album I really love took me a while to find - Live at the Old Quarter, Houston. Townes at the peak of his powers as a singer, songwriter and storyteller. Hilarious, heartbreaking, great.
So many great songwriters came out of Texas in that period - Townes, Guy Clark, Jerry Jeff Walker (not a TX native, though), Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, et al
Always dug this one:
Al, you gotta Netflix the Townes documentary "Be Here to Love Me". Heartbreaking & beautiful - just like the man's music.
It was made by a friend of Jay Jaffe's. Yes, I'll check it out. Townes died during post production of "The Big Lebowski." I think the Coens had already planned to use Townes' cover of "Dead Flowers," but I'm sure that cemented their desire to pay tribute to him.
