Townes Van Zandt's first album on LP reissue - a bonafide classic!
Originally released in 1968, For the Sake of the Song is a reissue of Townes Van Zandt's well-known debut album. Produced by Jack Clement (Charley Pride, Chet Atkins, U2, etc.) and featuring original liner notes by Mickey Newbury, Van Zandt went on to cement his status as a cult icon among gifted songwriters such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Emmylou Harris who eventually recorded their own covers of his songs. Steve Earle named Townes Van Zandt "the best songwriter in the whole world" and on the evidence of this record it's easy to agree.
