Guy Clark Somedays The Song Writes You 2009

Guy Clark made another fine record. Yes, his voice is getting a bit ragged from time to time, but he's still one of the best songwriters in the game.

Somedays You Write The Song, Hemingway's Whiskey, Wrong Side Of The Tracks, and Maybe I Can Paint Over That are all classics from Clark's pen, and he does a wonderful rendition of Towne's Van Zandt's If I Needed You.

There are a few lesser songs, but overall it's quality music. Clark sings from deep in his heart, as he always has. The recording of the acoustic instruments is pristine, and Clark's and Verlon Thompson's guitars ring like you're in the room with them.

Any of Clark's records since 1992's Boats To Build are easy to recommend. This one can join that rich body of work.
