The documentary film Heartworn Highways and its soundtrack perfectly captures the time when country troubadours Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Steve Earle, among others, began to wrestle the credibility of country music back from the shiny over-production that was going on in Nashville. The film and the musicians showed their love for the folk and bluegrass roots of country music.

What this album is is a permanent capture of a special moment in time. All performances were recorded during December 1975 and January 1976. The intimate feeling of this recording makes for a unique experience. The soft ballads, thumping harmonies and silly between-song banter all fuse into a wonderful down-home jam session, except it's not your home. You just get to pretend it is. Some of the songs get a little cheesy, but others, like "Blueberry Wine", are light-hearted sing alongs perfect for a summer day.
