Van Zandt's 5th album, was different from his first 4 starting with the first few notes.

The leadoff track "Two Hands" was an up-tempo gospel number featuring piano & backup vocals. Van Zandt returned to religion in the country waltz 'When He Offers His Hand', sang rock & roll with a harmony vocal on 'Standin'', tried a martial beat worthy of Johnny Cash on the gambling story-song 'Mr. Gold & Mr. Mudd' & even turned to comedy in 'No Deal'. The musical variety made 'High, Low & in Between' a more interesting listen than Van Zandt's previous work, but what made it his best album since his debut was the quality of the songs, especially 'You Are Not Needed Now' & 'To Live Is to Fly'. Liner notes by Colin Escott.
