商品の紹介
The only thing wrong with this album is its title. Texas Rain (with the subtitle "The Texas Hill Country Recordings") doesn't suggest anything about the contents. To be useful, the name of this album would be "Townes Van Zandt and Friends Sing the Songs of Townes Van Zandt," because that describes the contents accurately. In the early '90s, as he frequently told interviewers, Van Zandt was at the Fire Station recording studio in San Marcos, TX, recording what was supposed to be a 60-song box set of his material. That project did not appear before his death at the start of 1997, but these 12 tracks derive from the sessions. On them, Kevin Eggers -- who produced Van Zandt's early Poppy/Tomato albums of the late '60s and early '70s, on which many of these songs got their first recorded performances -- puts together sympathetic, filled-out arrangements and brings in a series of sympathetic duet partners for Van Zandt. These include Emmylou Harris, who scored a hit with Van Zandt's "If I Needed You" and joins him on it here, and Willie Nelson, who, with Merle Haggard, hit with Van Zandt's "Pancho and Lefty" and here performs "No Lonesome Tune" and "Marie." ("Pancho and Lefty" itself gets a Tex-Mex treatment courtesy of three-quarters of the Texas Tornados -- Freddy Fender, Doug Sahm, and Augie Meyers -- along with Rubin Ramos and the Texas Revolution.) But Van Zandt himself is never overwhelmed by the assistance. He is in good voice and dominates the proceedings with his matter-of-fact phrasing, which emphasizes the dry wit and detail of the lyrics. There has been a glut of Van Zandt releases since his death, and this one doesn't present any new material, so it can't be considered essential. But there are some terrific performances of the songwriter's better songs. ~ William Ruhlmann|

Personnel includes: Townes Van Zandt (vocals, guitar); Emmylou Harris, Freddy Fender, Calvin Russell, Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Kimmie Rhodes, James McMurty, Kathy Mattea (vocals); John Inmon (acoustic & electric guitars); Doug Sahm (12-string guitar); Gene Elder (fiddle); The Texas Revolution (horns); Augie Meyer (accordion); Rubin Ramos, The Chromatics (background vocals). Recorded at The Fire Station, San Marcos and Pedernales Studios, Perdernales, Texas. Includes liner notes by John Kruth. In the late 1980s, Texas singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt set out to re-record many of his classic compositions for an envisioned box set entitled NEWOLOGY. 12 of these recordings finally surfaced in 2001 on the Tomato release TEXAS RAIN. Each of the tracks features a guest artist who provides a duet vocal. While the recordings on TEXAS RAIN won't replace Van Zandt's earlier efforts as the definitive performances of these songs, each offers its own pleasures. Van Zandt's often-overlooked whimsical side shines through clearly on duets with Doug Sahm ("Two Girls") and Jerry Jeff Walker ("Blue Wind Blew"). His lyrical poeticism, for which Van Zandt is justly venerated by fellow songwriters, is evident on "Quicksilver Daydreams of Maria," "Kathleen," and his best-known composition, "Pancho and Lefty." Most affecting are Van Zandt's duets with Calvin Russell ("Waiting Around to Die") and Kathy Mattea ("At My Window"). Newcomers to Van Zandt's work might prefer to start with ANTHOLOGY: 1968-1979, which is a solid overview of Van Zandt's most creative period, or REAR VIEW MIRROR, a fine "best of" live album.
