First time on CD for Guy Clark's fourth album. Produced by Rodney Crowell and originally released on Warner Bros in 1981, The South Coast Of Texas was recorded in Los Angeles and features Crowell's compadres from Emmylou Harris's Hot Band and other denizens of the So Cal new country scene including Vince Gill, , Rosanne Cash, bassist Emory Gordy, Ricky Skaggs, and many others. Includes classics including She's Crazy For Leavin' (a 1988 hit for Rodney Crowell), Heartbroke (a giant hit in 1982 for Ricky Skaggs), and New Cut Road, plus a sizzling remake of Clark's Rita Ballou.

"As a big fan of Guy Clark, "South Coast Of Texas" happens to be my ultimate favorite of his many releases that I own one way or the other or both [CD/LP]. I just couldn't figure WHY in the heck it took so long for it to become available on CD.
Every tune here, I give at least an A or 5*. The LP/CD starts off with "Who Do You Think You Are", a tune I'd sing/recite for my coworkers often [and I'm not from Texas, but have been to Ft. Worth] it's easy to see why a Rodney Crowell would be 'soooo' interested/inclined in/to covering a lot of Guys' songs/tunes/compositions/lyrics.
If you like anything in the Country/Blues/Americana/Folk Genre's, you HAVE to add this GEM to your collection. This is an easy MUST-HAVE.
Take also a special listening to "Crystelle", "New Cut Road", "Rita Ballou", "Heartbroke", "She's Crazy For Leaving", and "Calf Rope".
Trust Me. If you don't care for the aforementioned, you're tracking down the wrong road."
Great Disc, But Already Out on CD

"The statement that this is the first time out on CD is wrong. Rounder issued a set with three complete original LPs on a 2CD set, titled "Craftsman". This is on it."
