While Townes Van Zandt may not be a household name, his work is known by his music fans from every genre. After the release of Sunshine Boy: The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971-1972, 5 star reviews from American Songwriter and Mojo, coupled with a 10 out of 10 piece from Uncut proved the world was ready to rediscover not only Van Zandt, but the studio albums those sessions came from.
Omnivore Recordings is proud to offer reissues of Townes' two seminal releases, "High, Low And In Between" and "The Late Great Townes Van Zandt" - for the first time in decades on High Quality 180g Vinyl!
High, Low and In Between was Townes Van Zandt's fifth album, originally released by Poppy Records in the fall of 1971. It was a release that saw Townes becoming the songwriter revered today. An album full of original material including "You Are Not Needed Now", "Blue Ridge Mountains" and "To Live Is To Fly", it opened eyes and ears to his abilities. His backing band included folks like Larry Carlton - who would play on Joni Mitchell's Court & Spark, accompany Steely Dan on the Royal Scam (playing that solo we all know and love on "Kid Charlemagne"), and who was a member of Jazz's elite Crusaders.
High, Low And In Between is - in the end - a classic Townes Van Zandt album. And one that should be reexamined. This gloriously remastered edition is now available on 180g vinyl.
