Overview

Raven's 2014 two-fer An American Dream: 1978-1992 begins with 1978's Guy Clark, the first record the Texas singer/songwriter recorded for Warner, and ends with 1992's Boats to Build, a record he released on Asylum/Elektra. Missing from this run is 1989's Old Friends, an album he cut for Sugar Hill -- a folk indie that'd become his home in the '90s -- but otherwise this is a complete portrait of Clark's salad days on a major label, featuring the aforementioned pair of LPs in their entirety along with 1981's The South Coast of Texas and 1983's Better Days. His first two albums, 1975's Old No. 1 and 1976's Texas Cookin', may be Clark's peak but these four records were also recorded in his prime, when he was writing songs that became standards and was also given a bigger production budget that often suited him. Whatever missteps there might be -- and if there are missteps, they're small, easily forgettable ones -- this amounts to a rich body of work that's even more alluring when packaged as this two-CD set.
