This 20-track compilation falls into the category of a "tribute" album to the renowned singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt, rather than being a compilation of the most famous or interesting interpretations of Van Zandt compositions that have appeared since his career began in the 1960s. Exceptions might be Shane MacGowan (who does "Waitin' Round to Die" with Mighty Stef), Stan Ridgway and Peter Case (who perform "If I Was Washington" as a duo), Johnny Dowd (who does "No Place to Fall" with Billy Coté), and the late Van Zandt himself (who sings the Michael Weston King composition "Riding the Range" with the Calvins).

Townes Van Zandt is the third studio album by the American singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, released in September 1969 by Poppy Records. It includes re-recordings of four songs from his 1968 debut album, including the first serious song he ever wrote, "Waitin' Around To Die". Townes Van Zandt was recorded at Bradley's Barn in Nashville. The album consists of ten originals and showcase Van Zandt's poetic lyrics and trademark, uncluttered fingerpicking.

Townes Van Zandt, the elegant Texas troubadour who authored some of the finest songs ever written over the course of his 52 troubled years, was always quick to make it known that he was very much in on the cruel joke of his destiny. During a checkered, if frequently brilliant, recording career - often derailed by label concerns, production difficulties and Townes’ own recalcitrance - he produced a handful of outstanding albums possessing gallows humor titles like The Late Great Townes Van Zandt.

The Late Great Townes Van Zandt is a 1972 studio album by Texas singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt. It was the second album that he recorded in 1972, and a follow-up to High, Low and In Between. The album features two of his most covered songs, the Western outlaw ballad "Pancho and Lefty" and the gentle love song "If I Needed You"

Townes Van Zandt recorded just nine studio albums from his debut album in 1968 until his death in 1997, but those albums are so jam-packed with impeccable songs that it makes choosing just 20 of them a nearly impossible task. Nonetheless, it’s the perfect way to celebrate this strikingly unique and highly influential songwriter. 20. The Catfish Song. Accompanied by gospel piano, Townes sings sweetly and sadly about time past that cannot be recovered and dreams that float only so high before sinking down with the catfish forever more. 19. Only Him Or Me. In Van Zandt’s blue musical world, the way his woeful narrator always seems to be leaving his love should be accepted as inevitable, like the rain falling or rivers flowing.
