  1. Earle, Townes Van Zandt's foremost disciple, gives 15 favorites the kind of carefully considered settings they deserve.
  2. 80
    While Earle's brawny attack might seem ill-suited to Van Zandt's wistful angst, he does his idol justice on this vibrant covers set, delivering supersonic bluegrass and starry-eyed ballads with the same thoughtful finesse.
  3. Townes does what a tribute album should do: Earle evokes the essence of the honoree without giving up a smidgen of his own individuality.
