This is Townes Van Zandt's masterpiece probably. There is not a trace of filler, and many of the songs are classics. "Tecumseh Valley" and "St. John the Gambler" have to be two of the most masterful story-songs out there. Relationships and their attendant complexities are documented quite well in "Like a Summer's Thursday" and "Why She's Acting this Way." "Our Mother the Mountain" sounds like a spooky folk song from the seventeenth century and "Kathleen" is just plain harrowing. There's an otherworldly, unnameable quality to this music.
