Description
"If you want to learn how to write a song—one that's built to last, with vivid characters and images that plant you squarely inside a scene— listen to Guy Clark," said NPR in a recent feature on the Texas native who nabbed the ears of country music fans from the minute his first album, Old Number One, came out in 1975. Remastered in 20-bit sound from the original source tapes, these 20 tracks include "Rita Ballou," "The Last Gunfighter Ballad," "Desperadoes Waiting for a Train," "That Old Time Feelin'," and a rare cover of Townes Van Zandt's "Don't Let the Sunshine Fool You."

"In a big way, Guy's first record helped tell me what a song should, what a song could be."—Lyle Lovett

"Clark is Americana's craftsman, a storyteller who carves songs out of quiet moments and marginal characters that most folks wouldn't notice, and one whose simple rhymes convey complicated lives. Raised in West Texas, Clark soaked up blues, folk and Mexican music, along with a wonderfully skewed view of the human condition. He finds beauty in imperfection…. But his dark humor is rarely far from the surface."—NPR
