great sounding music, no issues with the recording or pressing. Music didn't bring me in as much as other from VMP so only 4 stars.

Fantastic release by VMP here. Been wanting to get some Townes, and I guess this is as good of a place to start as any. Sounds perfect, disc fits the jacket well, and the booklet is a nice touch. It's a great pressing all around.

So it appears that this album was remastered from the Fat Posuum 2007 release, which I believe was only issued on CD that year. Fat Possum reissued on LP in 2012. I was under the impression that it was done from the original tapes. Listened to it once and sound quality is good. After a few more spins, I’ll have a better feel for it, and will hopefully be able to give a more thorough review.
