5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have album for "Americana" music fans, February 15, 2012
This review is from: This One's For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark (Audio CD)
As a music journalist, I've worked with Nashville-based publicist Tamara Saviano for over 10 years on various projects she has promoted - from her years with Sugar Hill, Dualtone and other labels. She helped me discover musicians and songwriters I'd not have discovered otherwise. But the publicist has turned Producer twice before - first a Stephen Foster tribute album (2004) and then one for Kris Kristoffersen's 70th birthday (2006)- and now with this superb - and loving - tribute album to one of Texas's best-known Americana icons. (In fact, Clark was "Americana" long before that label for the genre was created.

The "Producers Note" written by Saviano in the 20-page booklet slipped inside the package (which includes, not on the session details but the lyrics to all 30 songs in this set) give you the history of how she first hooked up with Clark in 2002. Once the project started Saviano had no problem in getting some of Clark's admirers to join in. Nearly all the recordings - made at various locations- were done in one or two takes with virtually no overdubs. The list of artists reads like a "Who's Ho" of "Americana" (Rodney Crowell, Terri Hendrix, Robert Earl Keen, and Steve Earle - to name a few). And there are some unique mash-ups like John Prine duetting with Emmy Lou Harris. The songs -not the recordings - go back 40 years (!) to 1971 and as recent as 2009. Clark's music is timeless.

This album is a must for Clark fans (I'm a big one) as well as anyone who loves well crafted songs about people and their relationships. My favorite track is "The Guitar" performed by Ramblin' Jack Elliott, but you'll find your own here.
