The Nashville Sessions [180 gram vinyl]




'These raw sessions will only enhance Townes’ reputation. ★★★ ' Max Bell, Record Collector

'A welcome release of an album that, whilst not a true classic of Americana, nonetheless deserves its place in the discography of the much missed country-folk icon.' Tom Patterson, Shindig!

These are good performances and the accompaniment, at times quite expansive, never gets in the way of the songs. ★★★★  Spencer Leigh, Country Music People 

In 1974, Townes Van Zandt recorded what would have been his seventh album Seven Come Eleven.  Business issues prevented its release until the recordings surfaced two decades later as The Nashville Sessions.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the beginning of Townes Van Zandt’s turbulent musical career and the continuation of a major catalogue reissue programme, Charly has restored the “long-lost” The Nashville Sessions to present a stunning document of the folk-blues master at his absolute peak.

Restored and re-mastered from original tapes provided by producer and manager Kevin Eggers, this limited edition release, wrapped in an original Milton Glaser portrait cover, is released on 180 gram vinyl with fully illustrated and detailed sleeve notes by Uncut magazine's Rob Hughes: “These are songs that tap into the timeless myth of the American troubadour, a place where wandering souls tramp the byways of their homeland...”
