Townes Van Zandt - Like A Summer Thursday

John Townes Van Zandt (March 7, 1944 -- January 1, 1997), best known as Townes Van Zandt, was an American country-folk music singer-songwriter, performer, and poet. Many of his songs including "If I Needed You", "To Live Is To Fly", and "No Place to Fall" are considered standards.

The years between 1968 and 1973 would prove to be Van Zandt's most prolific era. He released five albums during the time period: Our Mother the Mountain, Townes Van Zandt, Delta Momma Blues, High, Low and in Between, and The Late Great Townes Van Zandt. Among the tracks written for these albums were "For the Sake of the Song", "To Live's to Fly", "Tecumseh Valley", and "Pancho and Lefty". These songs would eventually raise Van Zandt to near-legend status in American and European songwriting circles.

Text is wrong !!!Towns van Zandt does not have "near-legend status" he has maybe "near-god status" of course he is a fucking legend !!!!

Beautiful song.. I would love to hear a female vocalist cover this, perhaps with pedal steel or strings instead of harmonica...

This is what Townes sounded like in Austin in the mid 60's. He was singing at Allen Wayne Damron's 11th Door.
