  3. Haven't listened to this one in about 6 years, maybe more. Thanks!

  4. There's really nothing holier than good old Townes Van Zandt, except for good old Brazilian music. Thanks for this, and for years of insanely great albums…. Max (

  5. My friend, your taste are infallible. Might I add that I think TVZ's Live at the Old Quarter is perhaps one of his best.


  6. thanks Noel — and Live at the Old Quarter, Houston is my ABSOLUTE favorite TVZ album, hands down! For some reason I had decided to post this one that day but for a long time I've considered putting up the Old Quarter set. Been issued on a few different labels (Charley, Fat Possum). Soooooooo good
