Apparent Dip Music Club #5 – Townes Van Zandt

This song became famous thanks to a cover by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, but I think the original Townes version, or the one found on this amazing posthumously released album, really capture the sadness of the song. Townes is one of those artists I never knew I liked until long after he had died. Like Stevie Ray Vaughan, his death came a t a time when he had turned his life around. Those of you interested, I highly recommend the documentary Be Here to Love Me, it chronicles Townes’s life and music, complete with live performances and interviews.
