Sunshine Boy: The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971-1972

$20.00

       A double disc set containing demos for and outtakes from "High Low, and In Between" & "The Late Great Townes Van Zandt". Remastered and released by Omnivore Records.

      "The art of Townes Van Zandt reveals itself a little at a time. Every hearing brings forth something you can’t believe you missed all the other times, or something that rings even truer today than back when. The alternate versions add an entirely new dimension, like seeing someone you thought you knew so well in a new light. The new songs are simply good to have when it seemed as if the barrel was empty. And so here are more than two hours of Townes Van Zandt—music unheard since the engineer peeled off a little splicing tape to seal the box around forty years ago."   Colin Escott.
