Arguably his most-known album, Townes Van Zandt's third LP boasts re-recordings of some of the more ornate takes from 'For the Sake of the Song,' and his most-known song in his storied career, "Waitin' Around to Die." It's the album he recorded that was closest to how he wanted his albums to sound--he never thought any of them were "right"--and it's the one that can lay you low the fastest. We have it on Tiger's Eye vinyl.
