'My Favorite Picture Of You', the first studio album in four years from legendary songwriter Guy Clark. As one of the most revered songwriters of his generation, Clark embodies the term "songwriter's songwriter." The simplicity of the recording shines brightly while capturing Clark's beautifully understated and road worn vocals. Clark co-wrote 10 of the 11 tracks on 'My Favorite Picture Of You' and dug very deep for each performance on this truly inspired collection.

"My favourite picture of you
Is the one where
Your wings are showing
Oh, and your arms are crossed
Your fists are clenched
Not gone but going".
Susanne never left him but she died last year aged 73. Guy writes of that time in their life with a tenderness of lyric and a sweet melody underpinned by a haunting cello and a gentle harmony by Morgane Stapleton.
Guy Clark is one of Nashville's most celebrated songwriters, a master craftsman, whose simple songs belie a subtlety of lyric and melody. With the exception of Lyle Lovett's lilting "Waltzing Fool", all of the songs were either written or co-written by Clark. And what songs they are, dealing with the deaths of illegal immigrants ("El Coyote"), the suicide of American soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, ("Heroes"), murder ("The Death Of Sis Draper") and songs of love lost, love found, redemption and heartbreak.
These are beautiful songs and the sparse acoustic sound of guitar, mandolin, banjo, cello and violin ghost the melodies to perfection. The sweet voice of Morgane Hayes in harmony with the cigarette stained and whiskey drenched pipes of Clark give these songs a tough but elegant sound to rival his very best work.
The all I can say after LP listening is - really excellent album!
Some songs slightly reminded me the songs from my favorite Dylan's "Desire", but this fact I can add as "plus" only.
Will definitely listen to all other albums of Guy.
Recommend with no doubts.

On the whole a lovely recording by the ageing Clark. One or two tracks are ordinary but then they only seem such because the majority are outstanding.Published on 17 Nov. 2013 by robsure
