    This is a record Guy Clark can surely be proud to have as a tribute.

    Given this combination of tangled travails and expressive voices, it's hard to imagine any way these songs might be better served.

    The best thing to be said about this tribute album is that it, too, captures the magic of Clark's music.

    This tribute may do a better job of conveying Clark's power than his own recordings.

    The greatest thing about this tribute album is that ... the biggest names on it ... all bring their A game. [Apr 2012, p. 88]

    Only a real party-pooper would deny Guy's talented pals the chance to respectfully demonstrate how well this stuff still works.

    Clark's worthy of the adulation, of course, but only a handful of cuts beg for more than that initial spin, and quite a few suck the life out of the song.
