Van Zandt, Townes - Sky BlueVendor: Fat Possum Records
Collection: New Releases.
NEW VINYL LP ON FAT POSSUM 2019
180 GARM COLORED VINYL
The late country-folk icon Townes Van Zandt would have turned 75 on March 7th. To mark the occasion, TVZ Records are teaming up with Fat Possum to release a collection of previously unreleased music the songwriter drafted back in 1973 with his close friend Bill Hedgepeth. Sky Blue runs 11 tracks that span raw demos of TVZ’s celebrated classics, traditional covers, and two new originals. The album is led by the single and opening track “All I Need”, a weathered, plaintive strummer. Across verses of run-on sentence reflection, TVZ outlines his trials and troubles – wishing for just a little bit of relief over music that carries itself like a shoulder to rest on.
