Townes Van Zandt & Guy Clark: Live at the Cactus Cafe

If you haven't seen the recent documentary Be Here to Love Meabout the late great Townes Van Zandt you really should. It is an amazing movie bout one of the greatest song writers to ever have lived. Around the time I was watching "Be Here to Love Me" I thought it would be cool to post a few Townes Van Zandt songs on here. Instead of posting just a few tracks I have posted this entire concert of Townes and Guy Clark from 1991. If you enjoy this recording you really should check out "Live at the Old Quarter" or "live at MacCabe's".

I took the song titles directly from the recording. If you leave the correct song titles I will fix it. Thanks

Towns was a GOD! Saw him here in Dallas and in Ft Worth so many time I took it for Granted there would always be another chance to see him. saw him one at the old poor Davids when it was on Greenville Ave. and it was like just any weekend night With friends, sitting around picking on tunes and just b/s'n around.
And my Big point to make is Towns like Guy Clark are NOT song writers, their Story Tellers, and they tell stories so well that at a live show it's like their chatting with you!!!!! God I miss Towns

Hey Danfun,

Brett Hughes here, of Ramble Dove.

Would you mind if I posted a few of your (great!) shots you took at Irving Plaza? Let me know if you'd like them credited, etc. I'd really appreciate it, thanks!

Wow, I used to have a cassette tape of this and I lost it years ago. It was one of my favorite concerts ever. I'd love to get these MP3s, but the links don't work anymore. Could you repost them perhaps? Thanks --- John
