Unreleased music by Townes Van Zandt

Unearthed from the dust, as if snatched out of the air (the way the songwriter described how he wrote many of his songs), is Sunshine Boy: The Unheard Studio Sessions & Demos 1971-1972. I don’t know about you, but nothing else musically could stoke me as much as this news. Just like when I was 25 years old and scratching my head, asking myself, “How have I not heard of this guy before?”, I have the same feeling upon hearing about this release this morning; 28 unreleased studio “throwaway” tracks and different mixes recorded by Townes Van Zandt, the world’s greatest songwriter, have been found and are to be released today.
