5.0 out of 5 stars Older, wiser and still brilliant 1 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This came out about 20 years after his debut with Old No. 1. Guy Clark never had the sales figures that would match the quality of his music and not much of his output over the years is easily available. This is available for good reason: It is a stellar album. If you have any other stuff from him already, then get this without much further consideration. Fantastic songwriting and excellent production. And I love him for his singing voice as much as for his lyrical skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dublin Blues, where all songs gather 6 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The title song "Dublin Blues" itself stands as masterpiece. It might be best Guy Clark song and one of the best american songs ever. The rest of the album varies but always keep the resonable level. This is guy Clark at his (almost) best and he's in prime league all his life.

5.0 out of 5 stars texastentialism at its best 10 May 2000
By william woolum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Guy Clark's *Dublin Blues* has the feel of a diamond cutter at work. Every word, every phrase is like a diamond cutter's blow, exact, giving more by cutting excess away. "Dublin Blues", the title cut, portrays a haunted, worldly guy -- he's been to Spain, seen the David, heard Doc Watson -- but his heart is broken, he longs for forgiveness, and none of the beauty he's found in the world can relieve his sufferering. It's the first of a series of searching, bluesy country songs exploring loss, hope, faith, dreams, and grief. If you like minimalist art, if you enjoy laconic, soulful songs and pared down musical arrangements, Guy Clark's *Dublin Blues* achieves near perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece 3 Jun 2006
By J. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Here I am in Dublin...from there I'm hooked. Some of Guy's best writing. The title tune with the odd acoustic riff and the spooky sense of sorrow and joy at the same time. "Stuff That Works", the collaboration with Rodney Crowell that includes a really sweet turn toward Guy's wife Suzannah, "Black Diamond Strings", the obligitory this could be a drunken sing along song if you want it to be, not to mention a tip of the cap to Rodney and those strings every guitar player started out with.

The highlight though is a beautiful version of what is arguably the best song Guy has ever written, "The Randall Knife." It's one of those songs that when its over you say if I could write anything as good as any line in that song I could die a happy man. The tune about a relationship with a father is one most of us can relate to.

This is one another of those take it to a desert island records. Buy it today

5.0 out of 5 stars I hear something new and profound at every listening. 15 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I cannot listen to Guy Clark without hearing something new at every playing. This guy always seems to be talking directly to me. As far as the Amazon reviewer mentioning a limited range and tone and clip-clop tempos... he has totally missed the whole point of Guy Clark. I can't imagine anyone else doing his songs as well as he does or anyone "improving" his songs by changing anything about them. They are LIFE. They are TRUTH. They are PROFOUND. The feelings of every son to every father are in "The Randall Knife". I hope I'm living my life with "The Cape" tied around my neck; if you're not, why are you here? Haven't you met people you wished would "Shut Up and Talk To Me"? I could go on, but I hope my point is clear: This guy Clark "KNOWS" and can craft and create in words and music the things we should all be aware of in our own lives. He's not just writing about life in the abstract, at a distance. He's been there and has much to tell us, if we will take the time to listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Guy's Best 4 Sep 2004
By E. Waltz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Guy Clark is a slow and careful songsmith. He doesn't release many CDs, so each one is meticulously crafted. This is one of his best.

Listen to the words and absorb the rhythms of the title track, IMO simply one of the finest songs written by any modern singer-songwriter. Who else could write a love song that admits to being too proud to come in out of the rain; unapologetically equates the works of Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Doc Watson; and book-ends it all with the unforgettable, acidic verse, "I wish I was in Austin, in the Chili Parlor Bar, drinking Mad Dog margaritas, and not caring where you are" -- all in 4:20 ?

From the sage wisdom of "Stuff that Works" (w/R. Crowell, a long-time friend of his), to the uplifting message and wry humor of "The Cape", to the painful mourning of his father's death in "Randall Knife", this disk includes some of his finest songwriting. If you are new to Guy Clark's music, this is a fine way to start appreciating his poetry set to music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless work by a Master of His Craft 11 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
All I will say is this: any man who has lost his father and can listen to "Randall Knife" without tears isn't ready to deal with his loss yet. Exquisite, sensitive, tough, and true. My favorite album. Ever. By anybody. I'd buy Guy Clark a beer with pride.
