Thanks, I'm downloading Townes right now. I'm thrilled Steve included my favorite TVZ song, No Place to Fall.

As you may have read, Townes, Steve Earle's covers album, comes in two versions-- one with a second disc consisting of essentially "demos" or the basic tracks of just Steve with guitar. I LOVE the second disc and actually greatly prefer some of the songs on the second disc over the more highly produced versions on the first disc.

I agree Arlene.

This reminds me how much I enjoy listening to their "Together at the Bluebird cafe." Got out the CD and enjoying it now.

Good to know about Poet being reissued. Thanks Tonto

Here's a link to a recent interview with Steve Earle in the Austin American-Statesman, discussing TVZ and the new album.
