V.A – Introducing Townes Van Zandt Via the Great Unknown

Origine du Groupe : V.A

Style : Country/Alt-Country & Americana, Country/General, Folk/General

Sortie : 2009

The ideas simple, get a eclectic bunch of unknown (mostly) indie artists together and record an album of Townes van Zandt songs, we’ve already had one van Zandt tribute recording this year from
the great Earle senior, which I blogged about back in March.

Do we need another one ? Absolutely and this one is coming at it from a different angle, does it work – in a word yes. Why? Well the power of Townes writing tends to transcend most music and in
this instance the covers are not half bad either.

The packaging for the CD is great too, the accompanying booklet giving plenty of information on the unknowns encouraging the buyer to go do some research, unknown of course is a relative term and
there are of course some recognisable artists on the CD, here’s the full tracklist.
