    Townes was one of the best Singer/songwriters of his era. Blaze Foley, Phil Ochs and Jackson C Frank were a few of others.

    What an incredible voice... I can't quite place this guy, he's not like the typical great singer/songwriters like Cohen and Dylan (more commercial), but neither is he in the gentle Jackson Browne or Eagles camp. Is he country? Whatever, he's extremely original and his lyrics aren't bad at all.

    Must be a beautiful guitar, and bare fingers on the strings.

    Townes is famous. Nanci Griffith did a cover of this song on a Townes tribute album
