Revered Texas singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt had the storytelling ability of a novelist, the imagery of a poet, and the easy conversationalism of a late-night DJ. In his laconic drawl, it all sounded so effortless, as if the songs were sitting in the ethers waiting to be retrieved. Townes liked to reinforce the idea that his songs were simply waiting for him to raise the antenna yet his detailed craftsmanship was second to none. Gathering landmark compositions like “To Live Is To Fly,” “For The Sake Of The Song,” “Pancho & Lefty,” “Nothin,” “You Are Not Needed Now” and “If I Needed You,” The Best of Townes Van Zandt is a unique collection from Fat Possum which wonderfully encapsulates the Texas troubadour’s songwriting brilliance!
