Texas Rain Townes Van Zandt vinyl

For contractual reasons this release is not available for sale in North America.

At the turn of the 1990s, Townes Van Zandt began recording a series of duets in Texas with longtime admirers including Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Jerry Jeff Walker, Freddy Fender and Doug Sahm. 
 
The full-band sessions sought to breathe fresh air into the lungs of some of Townes' best-known songs. 
 
Initially given a limited release in 2001, Texas Rain has been remastered and repackaged with a full-colour 20-page booklet, in-depth sleeve notes and revealing interview with original producer Kevin Eggers. 
 
It serves as one of Van Zandt's defining works.
 
"This was the cream of the cream. Texas Rain is a timeless record. We really felt that we'd made a huge breakthrough in terms of our creative collaboration, the level of musicianship, the quality of the tracks and the energy we had. It was a golden time in our lives." - Kevin Eggers - Producer & Arranger
 
- Restored from original masters and includes bonus Willie Nelson duet No Place To Fall. 
- Replica LP sleeve with original Milton Glaser designed artwork.
