I recommend this as a first Townes van Zandt album. It's the only one I've got and I love it. I've heard that some of his studio albums were very poorly produced. Actually, if you look into it, you'll find that it's pretty unanimous--some of those studio albums were rotten, and it's the producer's fault. This one was live--just him and a guitar, which is really nice. If I had to pick a general theme for his music, it would be something like loneliness or isolation. And, really, who can't relate to that? Toss in that he had a great imagination, and a gift for communicating a feeling, and you've got a great song writer. Definitely worth listening to.

Playing this album is like having one of the great song writers (and warm, if imperfect, singers) in your living room for the evening, that is, if your cigarette machine happens to be upstairs.

A fine recording that really puts you at the show. My only complaint is that they almost could of put the show on one CD. Or they could of added more tracks from other shows to fill out the 80 minute limit per CD. But this is great music.

This is a great live record simply put. It has everything. Great songs played at thier best. Its just Townes Van Zandt and his guitar. His songs and insightful, thoughful, humurous, and extremely well written and played. The atmosphere is superb as well. The record invokes a small Texas bar with a small stage perfectly. There is simply not enough to say about this record. Well worth every ounce of effort put forth to owning it.
