Editorial Reviews

First time on CD for Guy Clark's fifth album, originally released in 1983 on Warner Bros. Produced by Rodney Crowell, fresh from success with hits from Rosanne Cash, Better Days features Clark's first hit single Homegrown Tomatoes. But beyond the hit, Clark establishes himself as a polished songwriter and storyteller as evidenced by the haunting story of his father, Randall Knife. Although recorded in Nashville, this album includes many of the LA new country session players that are featured on Clark's previous album. Joining Vince Gill, Emory Gordy, and Hank DeVito are Bob Wills fiddler Johnny Gimble and Nashville guitar ace Reggie Young.

3.0 out of 5 stars BETTER DAYS May 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Sound quality is terrible. Probably recorded from an LP. I am a die hard Guy Clark fan and he never wrote or recorded a bad song. I have all his music and purchased this because it was not previously released on cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Homegrown Tomatoes February 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this album already, on vinyl. Glad to see it out on a CD. In addition to the song about tomatoes, it has "The Randall Knife", "Blowing Like a Bandit", "No Deal"- lots of good stuff, and lots of variety. Guy Clark is one of those "hidden" talents- not many people recognize the name, and most people will only remember the tomato song. But most of his songs are good, and most of them are a little off the beaten track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Find Better Days Than These July 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There's only two things money can't buy: True love and homegrown tomatoes. Guy Clark always delivers great lyrics and great music from the rockabilly "Blowin' Like a Bandit" admonishing fishermen about going into the gulf when a hurricane is coming to "The Randall Knife" a nostalgic look at growing up and the things we learn from our parents. I like all the songs on this CD. Guy Clark does not let his fans down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Days brings us Home Grown Tomatoes. January 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard the song on Fred Imus' Trailer Park Bash on Sirius Radio. I had to buy the CD because the song is not played enough. I love it, my kids love it and my grandchildren love it and they are wearing it out...the youngest, 3 yrs old, asks for "The Potato Song." We have discovered Guy Clark. Thank you Guy!
