Among the many covers drawn from his catalog is the Merle Haggard-Willie Nelson duet on “If I Could Only Fly.” (Foley himself is the subject of the songs “Drunken Angel” by Lucinda Williams and “Blaze’s Blues” by Townes Van Zandt.) Not masterfully recorded or played with technical perfection, the considerable worth of Live at the Austin Outhouse is in Foley’s wistful, finely detailed songs such as “Clay Pigeons” and “Our Little Town, ” as well as his good-natured banter on full display in this intimate portrait.
