I can't recommend this film enough to anyone who has an interest in such artists as Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, Charlie Daniels, Steve Earle, Barefoot Jerry, D.A. Coe, and, of course, Townes Van Zant.. This is a brilliant time capsule of mid-1970s Nashville and the scruffy bunch of singer/songwriters whol lived on the fringe of country music. The picking is exceptional and brilliantly recorded. There are moments, particularly in the Wig Wam tavern, featuring real folks who are far more bizarre than David Lynch could conjure.
But it's really about the music here, and though there are some slow times, this movie ranks as one of the top music films ever.
