GUY CLARK (379)

An American Dream: 4 Classic Albums 1978-1992 (Double CD) RVCD-379

An American Dream: 4 Classic Albums 1978-1992 presents four essential albums by the Grammy Award-winning and alt-country legend GUY CLARK. Originally recorded for Warner Bros and Asylum, Guy Clark (1978), The South Coast of Texas (1981), Better Days (1983) and Boats to Build (1992) are earthy and reflective, full of the mature, polished country sounds that took him to a new audience. Clark is recognised as one of the greatest of all Texan singer / songwriters; as All Music stated: “Along with Townes Van Zandt, Clark is one of the most influential singer / songwriters of the Texas troubadour school.” Throughout the 1980s other artists took Clarkʼs songs into the country charts - Bobby Bare with ‘New Cut Road’, Ricky Skaggs with the #1 ‘Heartbroke’, the Highwaymen with ‘Desperados Waiting for the Train’, Rodney Crowell with ‘She’s Crazy For Leavinʼ’.

Full of deeply moving songs and infused with Clark’s elegant phrasing, An American Dream contains his own classic singles such as ʻFools for Each Otherʼ (Guy Clark), ʻThe Partner Nobody Choseʼ (South Coast of Texas) and ‘Homegrown Tomatoes’ (Better Days). This remarkable collection features contributions from a sterling cast of sessions players, including Albert Lee, Buddy Emmons, Rodney Crowell, Hank DeVito, Ricky Scaggs, Vince Gill, Rosanne Cash, Jerry Douglas, Brian Ahern and Emmylou Harris who sings duet vocals on ʻI Don’t Love You Much Do Iʼ (Boats to Build). With 40 tracks of superb audio quality, color booklet and detailed liner notes this is a must-have collection for all alt-country aficionados.
