Be Here to Love Me [Fat Possum]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Be Here to Love Me is the official soundtrack from a docmentary film by Margaret Brown about Townes Van Zandt. The music on these two discs is largely taken from Van Zandt's catalog on Tomato, but there are a couple of live cuts and alternate versions of previously released cuts contributed by his longtime manager Harold F.

In sum, this is a two-disc compilation that feels like a road trip through the songwriter's life.
