This impressive disc is the long overdue soundtrack to the recently re-released legendary 1975 underground Americana documentary of the same name. It features the very first recordings by John Hiatt, Steve Earle, and Rodney Crowell, as well as performances by Guy Clark, David Allan Coe, and the late Townes Van Zandt, just to name a few. The album also showcases some serious fingerpicking prowess, with Clark’s dynamic, percussive attack contrasted with Van Zandt’s breezy, delicate approach, and Hiatt’s plaintive, slow-burning sound. The raucous, yet intimate vibe of the recordings makes listeners feel like they’re in a rough and tumble bar in the emerging Austin and Nashville alt-country scenes they chronicle. (Shout Factory).
