High, Low And In Between was Townes Van Zandt s fifth album, originally released by Poppy Records in the fall of 1971. It was a release that saw Townes becoming the songwriter revered today. An album full of original material including You Are Not Needed Now, Blue Ridge Mountains and To Live Is To Fly, it opened eyes and ears to his abilities. His backing band included folks like Larry Carlton who would play on Joni Mitchell s Court & Spark, accompany Steely Dan on The Royal Scam (playing that solo we all know and love on Kid Charlemagne ), and who was a member of Jazz s elite Crusaders.

High, Low And In Between is in the end a classic Townes Van Zandt album. And one that should be reexamined. This gloriously remastered edition will be available on CD, in a digipak with liner notes from award-wining scribe Colin Escott, as well as on 180 gram vinyl with the first 1,500 pressed on orange colored stock. (Future pressings will be on standard black vinyl).

Now that the public s appetite has been whetted by Sunshine Boy feed it with High, Low And In Between!
