180g Limited Edition Vinyl Release Of 1969 Folk Masterpiece!

Widely considered one of the greatest songwriters of his generations, Townes Van Zandt has been hailed by such signers as Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, and Willie Nelson. Fat Possum is proud to reissue four this title from his early career. Van Zandt's most prolific (and most critically acclaimed) decade was from 1969 and 1978, and includes the albums "Townes Van Zandt", Our Mother the Mountain", "Delta Momma Blues" and "Flyin' Shoes". These four titles are the heart of any serious consideration of Van Zandt's career. Those four albums feature some of the most iconic cover art in album history (designed by Milton Glaser), and each is a classic in every sense of the word.

The second album by Townes Van Zandt, released in 1969, is generally acknowledged as his first masterpiece.
