Editors’ Notes

This One’s for Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark is a well-crafted collection of the Texas troubadour’s songs done by many of his peers and a few acolytes. Rodney Crowell stays close to the original intimate framework of Clark’s “That Old Time Feeling”, crooning with a slightly weathered warble over piano and simple acoustic guitar strumming. It makes for an effective tone-setting opener. Conversely, Willie Nelson sings “Desperadoes Waiting for a Train” like he wrote the tune in the back of Honeysuckle Rose (his old tour bus). Emmylou Harris and John Prine sing a gripping duet on “Magnolia Wind”: he with a weathered old rasp and she with her ageless inflections somehow untouched by time. The ragged textures in Kris Kristofferson’s gritty growl help give “Hemingway’s Whiskey” an authentic feel—as if he were taking neat sips of that libation between verses.

Customer Reviews

Unsong Great

Look at the names above who are singing his songs and that will tell you how great he is and great his songs are. I'm a massive Steve Earle fan and he is one of his friends also another great is Vince Gill who is a brilliant guitarist.

This must be in your collection

If you are into Country Music then this must, must, must be in your collection. Forget the stars who were involved in the recording like Shaun Colvin, Willie Nelson et al and just concentrate on the superb production values. This is a serious album created with love and crafted to perfection. If you are not into Country and crave an album to challenge the likes of The Bueno Vista Social Club then use to learn about country and come and join us. Sample Desperados Waiting For A Train, The Guitar, or, even better, Stuff That Works. Authentic, Stuff that works, stuff that you don't leave on the shelf. Go on, a double album for this price, you won't regret it I promise.
