    People who know a lot more about these kinds of things than I do say that the best American songwriters come from Texas.

    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.

    Songs include:

    Two Hands

    You Are Not Needed Now

    Greensboro Woman

    Highway Kind

    Standin’

    No Deal

    To Live Is to Fly

    When He Offers His Hand

    Mr. Mudd & Mr. Gold

    Blue Ridge Mountains

    High, Low and In Between

    January 1972 – Billboard Did Not Chart
