Townes Van Zandt's 50th Anniversary edition of Our Mother the Mountain includes: 180 gram remastered vinyl, tip-on jacket, lyrics included. "Townes' second album, released in 1969 and produced by Jack Clement, contains 11 sorrowful and soulful tunes showcasing some of Van Zandt's best work. The weight and beauty of these songs are still standing tall against time. Widely considered one of the greatest songwriters of his generation, Townes Van Zandt has been hailed by such singers as Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, and Willie Nelson. Fat Possum is proud to reissue four titles from his early career - Townes Van Zandt, Our Mother the Mountain, Delta Momma Blues, and Flyin' Shoes - that comprise an essential introduction to his best songs. Recorded between 1969 and 1978, Van Zandt's most prolific (and most critically acclaimed) decade, these four titles are the heart of any serious consideration of Van Zandt's career. Featuring some of the most iconic cover art in album history (designed by Milton Glaser), each is a classic in every sense of the word. The four titles are part of a series of Townes Van Zandt reissues that Fat Possum is undertaking in conjunction with the Van Zandt estate.
