This One’s For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark Gets Another Great Review

Rock & Rap Confidential LogoRock & Rap Confidential provides a great review of the acclaimed album, This One’s For Him: A Tribute to Guy Clark.

This One’s For Him (A Tribute to Guy Clark) (Icehouse Music)–Ray Wylie Hubbard coaxes all the fun anyone could want out of “Homegrown Tomatoes” and Willie Nelson’s version of  “Desperadoes Waiting for A Train” illuminates it as a quintessential American portrait.  Steve Earle’s “The Last Gunfighter Ballad” and Kris Kristofferson’s “Hemingway’s Whiskey” deliver notable gut punches, and Patty Griffin’s “The Cape” takes easy flight and dances there.  Shawn Camp’s “Homeless” marries a very contemporary country sound to an urgent plea for compassion.
