This is the 2nd perfect album Van Zandt cut in 1972, a complement to 'High, Low & in Between' - together they contain the highest points of his brilliant but erratic career.

'The Late Great' may be a bit stronger, with classics like 'Pancho & Lefty', 'No Lonesome Tune' & 'If I Needed You', but there's not a weak track here. Van Zandt's voice is in top shape, the song selection is superb & Jack Clement's understated production gives the tunes a timeless quality. He eschews the hokey touches that make parts of 'Our Mother the Mountain' sound corny, opting for a subdued sound that uses light touches of folk, pop & country music in their arrangements. Recorded at the legendary Jack Clement Studios in Nashville & originally released in 1972. Liner notes by Colin Escott.
