I’m not one to argue, especially knowing that Townes Van Zandt hails from the Lone Star State. If you judge his career by sales, then the net result is abysmal, but if you judge appropriately, by listening with your own set of ears, he is nothing less than remarkable.
This was his sixth album, and was still opening up and getting better with each release. “High, Low and In Between” is among my favorites of all his releases.
