Americana Master Series: Best Of The Sugar Hill Years

Released:
Label: Sugar Hill Records
Recorded in the autumn of 1996, Guy Clark's voice sounds as dry as a Texas summer, yet he somehow manages to let his sapless singing convey an array of emotions. Armed with only acoustic instruments and harmony singers, Clark chooses clever words and phrasing to birth captivating narratives. This is particularly evident on "Cold Dog Soup," a testimony to the simple life of Americana singers, songwriters and poets. "Soldier's Joy, 1864" contrasts a bouncy ditty with a story about a soldier who lost his leg to a musket ball.
