5.0 out of 5 stars country blues/ from Pittsburgh June 13, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Legend, good title for this disc. For the price you get 46 songs of well-produced tunes. I'm more of a blues/rock listener,but was looking for something different and I found it. Van Zandt is a masterful troubadour. When I can feel the pain of heartache and the beauty of love in words and song, well isn't that what good music is all about. He is hard to compare to anyone, but I hear a mellow Steve Earle and some Dylan. I hear whiskey-soaked storys throughout Legend,any real man can relate to these songs.Van Zandt's jammin' buddy,Guy Clark said,"A self-destructive, depressive,reclusive alcholic is not, perhaps, built to last. And that, according to Legend was Townes Van Zandt.If you like music that epitomizes life, Get This.

What more can I say? This is an excellent collection of a music legend's early works. If you are at all interested in the blend of folk, blues, and country that is Townes van Zandt, you can't go wrong buying this one.

If you like Townes this is the essential CDs to own. He was/is one of the greatest hardly known singer/songwriters of our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Legend, Indeed! May 26, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The main points of this review have been used to review other Townes Van Zandt CDs.

Readers of this space are by now very aware that I am in search of and working my way through various types of American roots music. In shorthand, running through what others have termed "The American Songbook". Thus I have spent no little time going through the work of seemingly every musician who rates space in the august place. From blues giants, folk legends, classic rock `n' roll artists down through the second and third layers of those milieus out in the backwoods and small, hideaway music spots that dot the American musical landscape. I have also given a nod to more R&B, rockabilly and popular song artists then one reasonably need to know about. I have, however, other than the absolutely obligatory passing nods to the likes of Hank Williams and Patsy Cline spent very ink on more traditional Country music, what used to be called the Nashville sound. What gives?

Whatever my personal musical preferences there is no question that the country music work of, for example, the likes of George Jones, Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette in earlier times or Garth Brooks and Faith Hill a little later or today Keith Urban and Taylor Swift (I am cheating on these last two since I do not know their work and had to ask someone about them) "speak" to vast audiences out in the heartland. They just, for a number of reasons that need not be gone into here, do not "speak" to me. However, in the interest of "full disclosure" I must admit today that I had a "country music moment" about thirty years ago. That was the time of the "outlaws" of the country music scene. You know, Waylon (Jennings) and Willie (Nelson). Also Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Jerry Jeff Walker. Country Outlaws, get it?
