"The greatest songwriter you've never heard"
Andrew Woods | MARKYATE, HERTS United Kingdom | 01/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The title is not an exaggeration. Townes Van Zandt's work has been cruelly overlooked. He has written some of the most starkly beautiful songs you are likely to hear. This UK compilation features all of the major songs from the first phase of his career, including the relatively well known "Pancho and Lefty" and "If I needed You" Townes was a classic Texan songwriter, you can hear echoes of Hank Williams in his lyrics (although Townes does it better) and Lightnin' Hopkins in his guitar playing. If you have the slightest interest in music you have to own a TVZ album, no country/folk/blues collection is complete without one. This album is a bargain, buy it now and then buy all the others. They'll be friends for life."
