180g Vinyl Double LP! Includes Live Tracks & 3 Unreleased Writer Demos!

We've not left much room for the making of things that matter in this modern world. For the careful, private passion of handwork and contemplative creation. Instead of art we've embraced certain obsolescence, offshore manufacturing, factory farming, and digital truths that arrive with the half-life of a firefly. Packaging.

And yet the tradition somehow endures: homegrown tomatoes, locally brewed beer, hand-knit sweaters. Bits of jewelry. And a few careful songs which still seek to tell private and public truths, as exemplified by the music of Guy Clark and his loose-knit confederation of ornery musicians.

This double LP celebrates the music made by the late legendary songwriter Guy Clark while signed to Dualtone, including several live cuts and three never-before-released demo tracks.

"There are few songwriters in existence who can sing about something as simple as bacon, lettuce and tomatoes and make it sound truly poignant, not silly — and, certainly, Guy Clark was one of them... 'Homegrown Tomatoes' is a sweet and simple tribute to life's quieter moments, and to the things often lost in an increasingly fast-paced world... [It] was later covered by John Denver on his 1988 LP Higher Ground." - Rolling Stone, May 17, 2016

Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound, reviews the Dualtone 2CD release:
"Clark was a poet and a storyteller, and he draws you in and captivates you with wry wit and heartfelt sentimentality... Sonics on these acoustic recordings are stunning." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound, April 2017, Music 4.5/5, Sound 4/5
