Some 27 years ago, master singer/songwriter and master of sadness, Townes Van Zandt began re-recording his best-loved songs for a three disc anthology which ultimately failed to appear. Rear View Mirror was originally released on Austin-based label, Sundown in 1993. It collects together 17 tracks from those sessions, which, in origin, date back to 1968. Double LP on Fat Possum

9/10 Jack Customer review, 27th November 2017

This is a great live album of Townes Van Zandt playing 17 of his songs live. There's no information about when or where these songs were recorded, but it's clearly a small club, and may be as recent as 1993, when the original album was released. The songs are great, and are mainly Townes' voice and guitar, sometimes a second guitar, sometimes a fiddle. Townes never misses a note, which may mean he was nearly sober when he recorded this. The most surprising track is the opener, "Pancho And Lefty", his most famous song, done here with a bit of fiddle.
