GREAT review.....one of the best in recent memory here on jambase. thanks for showing some love for two of america's great singer/songwriters, earle/townes.

if you have not seen the excellent documentary about townes, featuring earle, called 'be here to love me'......immediately do so.

”Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the whole world and I'll stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that.”

- Steve Earle

"I've met Bob Dylan and his bodyguards, and I don't think Steve could get anywhere near his coffee table."

I am not a huge fan of Pitchfork.com, but this week they got it right. They are streaming "Be Here to Love Me" the Townes documentary on Pitchfork.tv. One of my favorite songwriters. BTW, if you check it out, I love the line (paraphrased here), "I knew that if I were to do it, to really do it, I would have to give up everything and everyone I know and love."
