    High, Low And In Between

    High, Low And In Between was Townes Van Zandt's fifth album, originally released by Poppy Records in the fall of 1971. It was a release that saw Townes becoming the songwriter revered today. An album full of brilliant original material including "You Are Not Needed Now," Blue Ridge Mountains," and "To Live Is To Fly," it opened eyes and ears to his abilities. His backing band included folks like Larry Carlton-who would play on Joni Mitchell's Court & Spark, accompany Steely Dan on The Royal Scam (playing that solo we all know and love on "Kid Charlemagne"), and who was a member of Jazz's elite Crusaders.


    High, Low And In Between is-in the end-a classic Townes Van Zandt album. And one that should be reexamined. This gloriously remastered edition comes with liner notes from award-wining scribe Colin Escott, as well as on 180-gram vinyl-with the first 1,000 pressed on orange colored stock. (Future pressings will be on standard black vinyl).

    Live At The Old Quarter, Houston Texas

    Culled from Townes Van Zandt's years of independently released country-folk records, this austere collection of songs here serves, in effect, as a greatest-hits package. Van Zandt's dry, narrative wit was the source of influence for such singer-songwriters as Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson, and one would be hard-pressed to find a more simple, prettier love song than If I Needed You (a hit for Emmylou Harris) or a more riveting ballad than Kathleen, both sung with focused precision. Brand New Companion shows off Van Zandt's blues-picking expertise, Talking Thunderbird Blues demonstrates his wit and one of his best creations, For the Sake of the Song shows off his poetic strength. A wonderful place to start your Townes Van Zandt fascination. This version of Live At The Old Quarter, Houston Texas comes courtesy of the Townes Van Zandt reissue series that Fat Posssum is undertaking in conjuction with the Van Zandt estate.

    The Late Great Townes Van Zandt

    The Late Great Townes Van Zandt is a 1972 studio album by Texas singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. It was the second album that he recorded in 1972, and a follow-up to High, Low and In Between. The album includes the earliest recorded version of two of his best-known songs, Pancho and Lefty and If I Needed You. The album also included several cover songs and a re-recorded version of Sad Cinderella from his 1968 debut album. Some reviewers point to this as an indication that Van Zandt's prolific writing was beginning to slow,[4] however, this was his sixth studio album in five years. The cover songs included one song by his close friend, Guy Clark (Don't Let the Sunshine Fool Ya'), one by a major influence, Hank Williams (Honky Tonkin'), and the Lawton Williams song Fraulein. As a boy Van Zandt's father only agreed to buy him his first guitar after Van Zandt promised to learn to play Fraulein.


    The album has made several critical best of all-time lists. Stereophile included it as one of 94 honorable mentions that just missed their list of The 40 Essential Albums.

    Our Mother The Mountain (Awaiting Repress)

    Widely considered one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, Townes Van Zandt has been hailed by such artists as Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson among others. Fat Possum proudly reissues four titles from his early career: Townes Van Zandt, Our Mother the Mountain, Delta Momma Blues and Flyin' Shoes which comprise an essential introduction to his best songs. Recorded between 1969 and 1978, Van Zandt's most prolific and most critically acclaimed decade, these four titles are the heart of any serious consideration of Van Zandt's musical career. Featuring some of the most iconic cover art in album history designed by Milton Glaser, each is a classic in every sense of the word. These four titles are the first in a series of Townes Van Zandt reissues that Fat Posssum is undertaking in conjuction with the Van Zandt estate.


    One of the best of Townes Van Zandt's early albums, Our Mother The Mountain's production offers an earnest elegance that wonderfully contrasts the songwriter's dark undertone. Highlights include his artful take on depression Kathleen and the tender love songs Be Here To Love Me and Second Lovers Song.

    Flyin' Shoes

    Widely considered one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, Townes Van Zandt has been hailed by such artists as Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson among others. Fat Possum proudly reissues four titles from his early career: Townes Van Zandt, Our Mother the Mountain, Delta Momma Blues and Flyin' Shoes which comprise an essential introduction to his best songs. Recorded between 1969 and 1978, Van Zandt's most prolific and most critically acclaimed decade, these four titles are the heart of any serious consideration of Van Zandt's musical career.

These four titles are the first in a series of Townes Van Zandt reissues that Fat Posssum is undertaking in conjuction with the Van Zandt estate.


    The final Townes Van Zandt studio record before a nine-year-long mid-'70s recording drought, Flyin' Shoes has the advantage of Van Zandt's usual stellar songs, a famed producer (Chips Moman) and a boatload of first-class sidemen, including Jimmy Day, Randy Scrugg, and Spooner Oldham. The production is reasonably spare, allowing the quality of the songwriting and Van Zandt's creaky voice to shine through. Stand out tracks include Snake Song, No Place to Fall, When She Don't Need Me and a rare cover of Bo Diddley's Who Do You Love.

    For The Sake Of The Song

    Townes Van Zandt wrote songs with an uncommon grace and poetic clarity, and he sang them with a voice that was at once straightforward, eloquent and mindful of the arid beauty of his images. A decade after Van Zandt released his debut album, there would be dozens of singer/songwriters following in his footsteps, but he was a rather unusual commodity when the Jack Clement and Jim Malloy produced and arranged For the Sake of the Song was originally released in 1968.


    The 11-songs on Van Zandt's debut are all of fine quality and the emotional force with which Van Zandt delivers Quicksilver Daydreams of) Maria, Tecumseh Valley and the title tune belies the fact this was actually only his first album. On several tracks Clement and Malloy match the elusive mystery of Van Zandt's music with brilliant accompaniment especially on The Velvet Voice, the Western backdrop of I'll Be Here in the Morning, the tinkling keyboards on Sad Cinderella and the rattling percussion of Waitin' Around to Die.


    For The Sake Of The Song remains a classic debut. These songs make clear that Van Zandt's genius was already fully formed and as both a composer and a performer he was a man of rare gifts. Throughout, these gifts shine bright, and For the Sake of the Song was truly an auspicious early offering from an unparalleled musical talent.

Fat Possum is proud to reissue In The Beginning, a collection of ten recordings produced by Jack Clement (Johnny Cash, U2, Waylon Jennings) in 1966. Recorded almost two years before the original release of For Sake Of The Song, this is Townes in his original element and already writing about drifters, losers and gamblers.

    Woman To Woman

    I was sitting in a hotel room in Spearfish, SD learning to play a Townes Van Zandt tune called Loretta, and as I was singing the words, I started to get angry, says Esme Patterson on the inspiration behind her new album 'Woman to Woman.' I started thinking how one-sided and aubjective a lot of 'love songs' are, and how a lot of women immortalized in songs might tell a different side of the story if anyone ever asked.


    That realization inspired Patterson to write an album of response songs that aims to give voice to seven women from popular music: Jolene (Dolly Parton), Alison (Elvis Costello), Loretta (Townes Van Zandt), Caroline (The Beach Boys), Eleanor Rigby (The Beatles), Evangeline (The Band), and Irene (Leadbelly).


    They are archetypes from songs, frozen forever in black and white, she says. I did my best to add some color and give them some humanity.


    Well known for her work as a vocalist for Denver, CO's Paper Bird, Patterson also appeared on Anais Mitchell's 'Hadestown,' has performed on both Letterman and Leno as a backup singer for Tennis, and has collaborated with artists like Shakey Graves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Nick Jaina, and Reed Foehl. 'Woman to Woman' is her second solo release.

    2. Never Chase A Man (Dolly Parton - 'Jolene')
    3. Tumbleweed (Townes Van Zandt - 'Loretta')

    You've Got Nothing To Lose

    Produced By Jack White


    Kiwanuka, a 25 year-old UK native of Ugandan heritage, was raised in north London where he split his time between session work and local gigs. Along the way, having found footing as a solo artist, he was signed to Communion Records, then Polydor, and has since performed throughout Europe and North America too-touring in direct support of Adele. He made his way through Nashville this past summer with just enough pause and aplomb to commit these morsels to tape. The A-side ''You've Got Nothing to Lose'' is an original composition, featuring The Buzzards' Dominic Davis on upright bass and Cory Younts on piano, joined also by fellow balladeer Lillie Mae Rische on fiddle. Their contributions transform his work into a stone-cold groove with almost orchestral underpinnings, making it a fitting extension of their previous Blue Series.


    The single also features a chilling rendition of Townes Van Zandt's infamous ''Waitin' 'Round to Die'' on the B-side, the perfect compliment to the timbre and mood of the A-side.

    Train A Comin'

    "Train A Comin" the 1995 release by Steve Earle was his first album since the "The Hard Way" five years earlier. Steve returned to basics on this all acoustic record with help from Peter Rowan, Norman Blake, Roy Huskey, and Emmylou Harris. "Train A Comin'" finds Steve mixing some of his older material written decades before, such as "Mercenary Song", with choice covers of the Beatles "I'm Looking Through You", Townes Van Zandt's "Tecumseh Valley" and The Melodians reggae classic "Rivers Of Babylon". A critical and fan favorite "Train A Comin'" is a gem and one of the best albums of Steve's career. Issued for the first time ever on vinyl with a double sided insert.

    Townes

    Steve Earle's new album, Townes is his highly anticipated follow up to the Grammy Award winning album Washington Square Serenade. The 15 song set is comprised of songs written by Earle's friend and mentor, the late singer-songwriter, Townes Van Zandt.


    The songs selected for Townes were the ones that meant the most to Earle and the ones he personally connected to. Some of the selections chosen were songs that Earle has played his entire career (Pancho and Lefty, Lungs, White Freightliner Blues). He learned the song (Quicksilver Daydreams of) Maria directly from Van Zandt and taught himself Marie and Rake specifically to include here. Earle recorded the New York sessions solo and then added the other instruments later on in order to preserve the spirit of Van Zandt's original solo performances to the best of his recollection. The track Lungs, was produced and mixed by the Dust Brothers' John King and features Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, The Nightwatchman) on electric guitar.


    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

    Bloomed


    Remastered


    Includes CD With Bonus Tracks


    The March entry in our 25th anniversary reissue series is Bloomed, the 1994 debut album
    from Richard Buckner. The album will be remastered and released on 180-gram
    vinyl and will include a CD containing 11 bonus tracks of radio sessions, live
    performances, and original recordings of songs that appeared on future releases.
    Spin magazine described Buckner as "equal parts Bay Area bohemian and dust bowl
    traditionalist" and named Bloomed one of its best albums of 1994, while Pitchfork
    wrote, "It's a traditional outsider-country record in the lineage of Townes Van Zandt.
    Buckner's voice is all honey and oak, his guitar style elaborately twanging, his constant
    subject matter heartache."


    Richard Buckner provides some background on the album:


    Bloomed was originally (erroneously?) released on an unnamable German label in 1994.
    I was living in San Francisco at the time, having just moved out of a residential hotel
    and into the 1906 hilltop prefab that adorns the cover. At the time, I was heading a
    band called The Doubters. We were playing high profile events such as The Covered
    Wagon Saloon's Musical Barstools, but weren't making much headway. We had been
    turned down consistently every year by SXSW, but I was somehow finagled in as
    an unannounced guest onto an already unofficial SXSW showcase created by Butch
    Hancock at his gallery in downtown Austin. There, I met up again with Lloyd Maines,
    who agreed to produce my first record.


    Maines and I met in Lubbock, TX, a few months later, where we worked with
    Lubbock musicians in a small recording studio walled in wooden shingles Sharpied
    with bible passages from various church groups that also enjoyed working there.
    It was 112°F the morning I arrived under the suspicious (Californians are merely
    B-grade yankees) gaze of downtown's Buddy Holly statue. That first night there, it
    hailed so hard that heaven's angry pellets were storming in under my motel door. It
    only let up for a few moments that first night, allowing me to run across the street to
    get a butter burger and fries to go. We finished four days later and I flew back to San
    Francisco, dismembered the band, and embarked on a tour that would last about 20
    years (or a few days, if you count what I actually remember).


    Nothing's changed. I'm still dodging the sky and busking to strangers.

    The Sacred Heart Sessions

    The Lowest Pair features the duel banjo picking of Kendl Winter and
    Palmer T. Lee. Draped in Kendl's high lonesome harmonies and Palmer's
    Midwest croon, their debut release, 36¢, (Team Love Records) was
    hailed by many outlets and American Songwriter praised their earnest,
    earthy songcraft. Team Love will release their
    sophomore album, The Sacred Heart Sessions.


    Arkansas-born and now homesteading in Olympia, Washington, Kendl
    Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van and
    spreads her songs across the country Johnny Appleseed style. Kendl
    brings to The Lowest Pair her wonderfully weaving poetry of song, old
    and new, and a voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent
    with a little Olympia twist. Palmer T. Lee who hails from Minneapolis was
    nineteen years old when he inherited a couple of banjos and discovered
    he could reassemble them into his dream instrument. Former front man
    for the much loved high energy bluegrass band The Boys n' the
    Barrels, Palmer's songs are distilled into the warm sweet sounds of his
    percussive wordplay and the melodic interludes of his own unique style
    played on a pieced together banjo.


    After nearly a year of traveling the country playing clubs, hotels, house
    shows, back yards and street corners, they found their way back up to
    Minnesota, this time to Duluth where they sat down to record the followup
    to 36¢.   Linking up with Tom Fabjance at an old church seemed like
    the perfect way to expand on their sound without diluting their original
    magical formula. The Sacred Heart Sessions is an album that allows the
    listening to enter the space that surrounds its creation. One can virtually
    feel the walls and vaulted ceiling of the old wooden church rising up,
    creating a natural reverb and warming the air.


    Be it Kendl's punk roots, her admiration for the traditional American
    songbook, or the gravitational pull she sensed drawing her to Olympia,
    it's her combining these talents and creative impulses with Palmer's
    Midwestern charm, the long winters spent listening to a steady diet of
    Townes Van Zandt and John Hartford and the strange moment of fate
    that left him with two inherited banjos as a young man; this combination
    has resulted in a uniquely original sound that is The Lowest Pair.

    Uncertain As It Is Uneven

    The Lowest Pair had been planning to release a new record in the Spring
    of 2016. So, in early 2015, Palmer convinced Kendl to spend a winter in
    Minnesota, with the temptation of working with local greats Dave
    Simonett and Erik Koskinen on the new material. The duo then set off on
    what would be a successful season of touring their second, critically acclaimed
    album, The Sacred Heart Sessions (Spin: "solemn and
    humble;" The Bluegrass Situation: "deeply felt"), and a new-old-time
    record, I Reckon I'm Fixin' On Kickin' Round To Pick A Little. In the fall,
    returning to the midwest to finish up the recordings they had begun a
    few months prior, Kendl and Palmer found themselves with a whole new
    batch of songs ready to lay down. After much deliberation, they
    ambitiously decided the two collections should be released together in
    2016.


    The new records, Fern Girl and Ice Man, as well as Uncertain As It Is
    Uneven, could be viewed as two windows into the growing and changing
    world of The Lowest Pair. Uncertain stays the course of their previous
    releases, being focused on stripped down, intimate arrangements to
    support their timeless songwriting and haunting vocals. Fern Girl is a
    more moody and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new studio
    production directions, and what it might sound like for The Lowest Pair
    to be supported by a full band, while keeping one foot planted in the
    rootsy aesthetics which drew them together from the beginning.
    Kendl Winter, born in Arkansas, moved to Olympia, Washington after
    high school, drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively and thriving
    music scene. She put three solo records out on Olympia's indie label, K
    Records, and performed in nationally-touring northwest string bands
    before beginning The Lowest Pair in 2013 with Palmer T. Lee. Palmer
    built his first banjo when he was 19 from pieces he serendipitously
    inherited. Shortly after deciding songwriting would be the most effective
    and enjoyable medium for his musings, he began cutting his teeth
    fronting Minneapolis string bands and touring the midwest festival
    circuit, which is where he and Kendl first met, on the banks of the
    Mississippi.


    So, back to that Spring of 2016 plan: with little attention to tedious
    practicalities and with an eye focused securely on delivering to their
    growing fan base a truly special treat; a rootsy, bluegrassy, old-timish
    version of meiosis has happened, as one new album became two new
    albums.


    Fans already know that the chemistry between Palmer's Midwestern
    charm, those long winters spent listening to a steady diet of Townes Van
    Zandt and John Hartford, and Kendl's poetic and playful way with
    words, her unique approach to the banjo (just listen to "Dreaming Of
    Babylon"), and her barefoot-in-the-cool-river-water mystique combine to
    make a powerful sound, but what's new in 2016 is both the inclusion of
    those non-banjo sounds (harmonica, drum, bass, violin) and an
    incredible expansion of their songbook. In a way, two records, the playful
    and the hush, the dark and the rooted, the pillow and the nightmare, the
    pin drop and the starry night; the juxtaposition of the ups and downs
    that are experiences in a day, in a year, in a minute, all this has
    demanded from the band more than just "a new record." Fern Girl and
    Ice Man and Uncertain As It Is Uneven mark the arrival of America's
    next great musical duo, and it's over the course of these two albums that
    that boast becomes clearly rooted in truth.

    Reflections

    Country music's "Gentle Giant" re-teams with award-winning producer Garth Fundis for Reflections, the follow up to 2012's well-received comeback album
    And So It Goes. Don Williams, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, dominated for decades as a country hit maker and was dubbed "the Gentle Giant"
    because of his unique blend of commanding presence and that laid-back, easy style-cutting across national and genre boundaries. Those personal and
    musical qualities that stood out strongly across the 1970s, '80s and '90s, came full circle both in 2012, as Williams delivered the masterful And So It Goes,
    and today, as he readies the release of Reflections.


    Now, digging deeper into his winning, self-assured ease and revered musical style, Williams delivers a new collection of songs on Reflections that are
    sure to become instant classics. Included are numbers penned by legends Townes Van Zandt, Merle Haggard, Jesse Winchester and others, setting the
    bar high and requiring the talents of only someone of Williams' caliber to deliver them as intended.

    From The Ground Up

    From The Ground Up is the debut studio recording from singer/songwriter John Fullbright. Working off the success of his debut live album, Live at the Blue Door, Fullbright has been gathering a strong fan base, one fan at a time through consistent touring throughout Texas and Oklahoma and a live show that continues to develop and strengthen each time he steps on stage.


    Although still in his early '20s, Okemah, OK native Fullbright writes and sings like he's been around for years. Firmly rooted in a variety of American musical styles, John has crystallized his influences into a sturdy foundation of solid songwriting and astute musicianship. His early inspirations were the folk/country songs of Mickey Newbury and Townes Van Zandt, along with the philosophical bent of Woody Guthrie, who always admonished songwriters to write what you see.


    His virtuosic abilities on both the piano and guitar, combined with timeless lyrics throughout From The Ground Up certainly sets Fullbright apart from his many contemporaries, both young and old. From the spiritually influenced Gawd Above (Lord God Almighty and Satan and St. Paul to the poignantly satirical Fat Man, John Fullbright is making his initial mark as a truly gifted writer, singer, player and performer, all before the age of 25.

    My Favorite Picture Of You

    As one of the most revered songwriters of his generation, Clark embodies the term "songwriter's songwriter." The simplicity of the recording shines brightly while capturing Clark's beautifully understated and road worn vocals. Clark co-wrote 10 of the 11 tracks on My Favorite Picture Of You and dug very deep for each performance on this truly inspired collection.


    The album's heartfelt title track was written for Susanna Clark, Guy's wife of 40 years, and a successful songwriter in her own right, who passed away in 2012. If a picture says a thousand words, then the cover photo of My Favorite Picture Of You declares an entire life. The cover depicts Clark, slightly blurred in the background, holding up an old photo of his beloved from the 1970s. According to Clark, Susanna walked in and found he and friend, the late Townes Van Zandt drunk, again. She stormed out of the house, which is when the Polaroid was taken.


    The song is a loving tribute that melts your heart while making you smile. As a master songwriter, Guy Clark has always made us smile by infusing his wry wit into thoughtful storytelling.
    Clark's vocals on My Favorite Picture Of You exude truth, wisdom and warmth, only touching on the insight he has gained from an extraordinary life. From the delicate sweetness of "Cornmeal Waltz" to the poignant story of the veteran returned a changed man in "Heroes" to the determined "Hell Bent On A Heartache," Clark delivers a standout album in a four-decade career overflowing with high points.


    In 2004, Guy Clark was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He received the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005, and in 2013, he received the Academy of Country Music's Poet's Award, along with Hank Williams. However, Clark's multiple Grammy Award nominations and accolades merely hint at the immeasurable impact his songs and recordings have had. He has been a mentor to artists such as Steve Earle and Rodney Crowell and his songs have been covered by a multitude of artists, including Johnny Cash, Brad Paisley, David Allen Coe, Ricky Skaggs, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffet, Asleep At The Wheel and many others. After 40 years of songwriting, Guy Clark continues to be lauded and admired by his peers, critics and artists young and old from different genres...and he is not done yet.

    The Felice Brothers

    Their distinct brand of songwriting and the lawless sound they've forged has earned them comparisons to Woodie Guthrie, a young Springsteen, and the Scorcese film, Gangs Of New York. In these tales of murder, pathos, lust, and love, you'll find an honest new brand of American storytelling and song. Scruffy and scratched Americana that recalls Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and early Springsteen - Time Out London. The Felice Brothers' Catskills folk is rough around the edges and intoxicating. Ryan Adams, eat your heart out - Metroland / Best Of 2007. Backwoods Americana is all the rage, but this band of brothers is a cut above the rest - The Sun UK (4 stars).

    Lucky Strikes & Liquid Gold (Awaiting Repress)

    Ten road-weary tales from the wrong side of outlaw country. Jeff Cowell may have huffed thesame narcotic air as Townes Van Zandt and David Allan Coe, but hunkered far from the Nashville city limits, nary a Cash or Paycheck would drunkenly slur through his tunes. Recorded in 1975, Lucky Strikes and Liquid Gold is an
    isolated, backwoods loner epic, top-loaded with odes to hitch-hiking and rambling the crumbling
    Michigan countryside of Cowell's hard-drinking youth. Previously available only out of the backs
    of borrowed cars, truck stops, campgrounds, and country-western bars between Algonac, Detroit,
    East Lansing, Cadillac, and Manistee, this LP now finds new life in similarly detached environs: the
    last remaining record stores.

    Grayson Capps Direct-To-Disc Volume 1

    Having drawn comparisons to the likes of Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt and Drive By Truckers, to name but a few, Grayson Capps proves an artist equally singular in vision as those to whom hes compared. He doesnt always paint the prettiest pictures or offer a gleamy white smile, but he does reach down deep to remind us of our own humanity. Capps descends from the celebrated American Southern literary tradition and his songs deal with the South and the idiosyncrasies of its people, landscapes and tempos.


    His backing band, The Lost Cause Minstrels, comprises some of the finest players on todays Gulf Coast music scene, including Corky Hughes on guitar, Chris Spies on keys, Christian Grizzard on bass and John Milham on drums.

    Out Into The Snow

    Out Into The Snow is full of gorgeous human gestures from well-developed characters rising and falling in overlapping arcs of time. Brazen songwriting, like all great art, challenges even more than it entertains. Another mile-stone performance from Simon Joyner, perhaps the greatest songwriter you've never heard.Sounding sometimes like Doug Yule era Velvet Underground (with some Paris 1919 John Cale thrown in for good measure), On the Beach period Neil Young , Happy/Sad era Tim Buckley, and Our Mother the Mountain period Townes Van Zandt, the album is littered with complex characters.
