This One's For Him: A Tribute To Guy Clark (CD)

Lovingly produced by Tamara Saviano, who is currently working with Clark on his definitive biography, and frequent Clark co-writer Shawn Camp, the tribute includes thirty tracks by thirty-three friends and followers who have been influenced by his remarkable compositions. 

“Guy’s songs are literature,” says Lyle Lovett, among the venerable artists who eagerly gathered to participate. “The first time I heard Guy Clark, I thought it made everything I’d heard up to that point something other than a song. His ability to translate the emotional into the written word is extraordinary.”

Accordingly, Clark’s most vibrant (“Instant Coffee Blues”) and vivid vignettes (“Desperadoes Waiting for a Train”) reel with cinematic landscapes (“The Last Gunfighter Ballad,” “The Cape”). Novellas frequently unfold within minutes (“Better Days,” “She Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”).
