Recommended Posts

I'm embarassed to say that I just heard this for the first time today driving in to work on satellite. WOW!

Any of you who haven't heard it are really missing a fine Texas Singer Songwriter at his best!

I really like Guy Clark songs. One-hell-of-a-songwriter and he's so good putting some "real life" in a song.

Yes. And he hung with some equally talented singer/songwriters back in the day.

If you like Guy and have not checked out "This One's For HIm", do yourself a foavor and go directly to AMazon and buy it. 30 of his songs covered by a tremendous cast of admiring superfans. Ramblin' Jack Elliott does "The Guitar" and you can hear Verlon's guitar backing. Here's the group photo at the recording sessions-
