Texas-born Guy Clark is one of the great singer/songwriters and was a major influence on the new breed of country music artists arriving in Nashville in the 1980s. This coupling of two great albums Boats To Build / Dublin Blues on one CD is available for the first time.
• Texas-born Guy Clark is one of the great singer/songwriters and was a major influence on the new breed of country music artists arriving in Nashville in the 1980s.
• Guy Clark’s home was an open house for impromptu sessions and a place for testing new songs with such artists as Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell and Steve Young.
• Within these albums co-produced by Miles Wilkinson and Guy Clark from 1992 and 1995 are 20 of the artist’s finest recordings, an assessment agreed by both critics and Clark enthusiasts alike.
• Here, fine studio musicianship, perfectly accompanies, but never overcrowds, the vocals, perhaps hard to believe with such a strong ensemble on board, which also reveals the high esteem to which Clark is held.
• Verlon Thompson, Kenny Malone, Darrell Scott, Travis Clark, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas among those lending their instrumental skills. Suzi Ragsdale (the daughter of Ray Stevens) provides impeccable harmonies and guests Nanci Griffith, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Kathy Mattea, Bill Lloyd & Radney Foster and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott can be heard adding their voices to various tracks.
• “This coupling of two great albums on one CD is available for the first time”.
N.B: This title is released 20th November 2015 and will not be dispatched before this date.
