personally i can talk townes van zandt all day,...
alot of people immediatly think poncho and lefty,.....at least those that even know its a townes song do,.....but there's so much more out there that he did,..

i love the emotion in his voice,....i love how dark he wrote,.....and though most of his stuff is dark, to me atleast, it envokes such vivid and beautiful imagery,...

fav townes songs:
waiting around to die
him or me
to fly is to live
the catfish song
marie
rake
why she's actin this way

Dont know if theres an introduction place round here.....too late now!



I love Townes,favoutite album is probably his self titled album from 1970.....theres a great boxset of his first 7 albums (68-78)called "Texas Troubador",its quite cheap..."For The Sake Of The Song" is my favourite song of his(from the aforementioned self titled album)


His voice is mesmerising....nothing flashy about it,just gets straight to it

Didn't Townes write "Snowing on Raton"? That is an awesome song.

I also hear his name dropped a lot in Pat Green songs.

as for me i love TVZ
he is a hero to me
his mysticism and dark imagery are what turned me on to him
i can't begin to describe the feeling i head inside when i heard his music

greatest songwriter ever!
hatz off to you townes
