Muze PNote Having retreated from Texas psychedelia to front a guitar repair shop, Guy Clark was saved from a journeyman life when several of his songs were covered by Jerry Jeff Walker. A recording contract ensued, which Clark embraced with this country/folk masterpiece. Mature lyricism and captivating melodies mark an intimate set enhanced by the singer's raspy, lived-in intonation. These largely autobiographical songs are never introverted and address scenarios of love, longing and aging in a compelling, haunting manner. The evocative "Desperados Waiting For A Train" exemplifies the skills of a crafted songsmith who reclaimed the art of the singer-songwriter at a time when it seemed doomed to self-pity.

Producer: Neil Wilburn; Filippo Salvadori (Reissue)

Engineer: Al Pachucki; Ray Butts; Tom Pick

Artist Overview

Along with his cohort Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark is one of the most influential singer/songwriters of the Texas troubadour school. Clark began recording in the mid 1970s, and though his albums never broke any sales records, he became known as a songwriter's songwriter. His songs, full of worldly observations in the guise of unpretentiously poetic lyricism, have been covered by an ever-widening group of singers, including Lyle Lovett, Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Jeff Walker.
