After the relatively lush 'For the Sake of the Song,' 'Our Mother the Mountain' is a more stripped down affair for Townes Van Zandt, approaching the unadorned, crushing beauty of his live performances. Featuring some of his most known and beloved songs--chief among them, "Be Here to Love Me"--this album is a must-own for people in love with songcraft, the evolution of Townes Van Zandt, and alt-country.
