Guy Clark will always be one of a kind--and the best kind at that.
Aphra Wannabe
He's an accomplished singer who uses his "lived-in voice" to communicate extremely well.

A deep songwriter's album, both Guy's and his wife's songs as well as the great Townes Van Zandt's song "To Live Is To Fly" Surprisingly "COMES FROM THE HEART" ,the song that has become a cult classic and quoted all over the internet, is written by Susannah Clark and Richard Leigh. The lyrics just connect with people in a positive encouraging way. The chorus is:
"You got to sing like you don't need the money
Love like you'll never get hurt
You got to dance like nobody's watchin'
It's gotta come from the heart if you want it to work"
I believe this is the first recording of it but many singers have recorded it by now. I just wanted to let people know about this amazing song and where it came from.As far as I'm concerned all Guy Clark albums are good and some are great. The songs stick with you and he's mesmerizing live as well. He's an accomplished singer who uses his "lived-in voice" to communicate extremely well. He's sure knows how to write, co-write and pick the best songs of other artist. I've found lots of other artists just by researching the writers and pickers associated with Guy Clark. Check out all his cd's and live shows.

I first heard the song "Come From the Heart" ten years ago, stopped my car and scribbled down the words as best I could. Those words became an anthem to me through many hard times. Only years later was I able to track down the source of this wisdom: Guy Clark! I'm sorry John Bauldie is not able to appreciate what Guy Clark has laid out for those of us "who have ears to hear." Clark begins this CD with the best description of friendship I've ever heard in "Old Friends". Every song is a well-crafted, inspired example of living and examining life from the inside out even to the last spot-on observation of our often precarious state of mental health in "Doctor Good Doctor" (My therapist loved that one, too) Mr. Bauldie has a tough job. As a music reviewer he HAS to listen to music every day whether he wants to or not. Too bad he didn't understand what is really going on in "Heavy Metal". Every emotion I've ever had about working for a living is summed up in those few lines. I think Mr. Bauldie couldn't appreciate this CD because it's obvious he's neverhad a chance to "light a roman candle up and try to hold on to the dream". This CD is another GREAT example of one of OUR best, Guy Clark, at HIS best. I love this CD and learn more about life with every listening.

Guy Clark will never be a country superstar. He'd feel ridiculous in music video with a 22 year old female model hanging around his neck. He doesn't sing with an exaggerated country "twange." He may wear a black cowboy hat to keep the sun out of his eyes, but I doubt that he would ever wear one as part of a costume. His voice sounds like Burl Ivies.
What Clark does well, as demonstrated on Old Friends, is write simple and well-crafted songs. It is as comfortable to spend time listening to Old Friends as sitting beside the fireplace with, well, old friends. Childhood is celebrated in `Watermelon Dream,' `Immigrant Eyes' is a song of gratitude, and `Heavy Metal' is a tale of individualism. Clark follows a valuable (but too often forgotten) rule taught in Writing 101; that is, keep it simple. I only wish that I had more Old Friends like Guy Clark.

Texas folk music is the best way to describe this one. Catchy tunes and great lyrics make this one a timeless piece of music. Seems to get better with every listen.

Guy Clark writes nice songs, and once you get used to his "past middle-age" voice, you realize he is a skilled performer as well. The best numbers here include "All Through Throwin' Good Love After Bad" (which deserves and rewards repeated listening) and "To Live is to Fly", written by his good friend Townes van Zandt. He also does a nice job on the Joe Ely song "The Indian Cowboy" and the title tune, which he co-wrote with his wife and Richard Dobson. This is one of those albums which grows on you.

I LOVE Guy Clark and have since the 70's. I have every album he ever made and am now in the process of purchasing his music in CD format. Bauldie needs to grab a beer, sit back, relax and listen to what Guy Clark has to say. There's more to his music than Mr. Bauldie realizes.

Bauldie was right that this CD doesn't match the perfect magic of Old Number 1, nor Texas Cookin, Clark's first two albums. Those two classics will never be matched by anyone. Yet it's got two songs in the same league - "Come From the Heart" and "Good Love After Bad", worth the price and at least 4 stars.
