    @vinylmeplease - any chance of getting a good pic/video of the "midnight blue" of the vinyl. Like the idea, just want some eye candy on it!

    I am no longer a VMP member but just popping in here to say that VMP turned me onto Townes when his s/t album was in the store way back in 2015. As for the pick, I wouldn't have chosen this album, the arrangements don't really fit with his style too well. He re-recorded most of the tracks on this album for his s/t album because he didn't like how they sounded. But if it gets more people onto Townes I'm all for it. Personally his s/t, Our Mother The Mountain or Live at the Old Quarter would have been better choices IMO.

    Can't wait, very excited for this one. Wish it were Colter Wall though.

    I’m not a big country fan, but I do enjoy Townes. Very excited to hear this one!

    Never listened to TVZ before this was guessed as RoTM, so I think I would've preferred a treatment of his "best" album, but I get the pick and maybe it'll be a good intro for me to the artist. I think I'll be keeping it.

    It really seems that this would be the underdog of the TVZ discography...is it really any wonder why VMP chose it???

    Excited to delve into this record once it lands.

    I’ve actually never really dug too deeply into TVZ. Which is weird because many of the folks I love, love him. Some even named their kids after him. I did pick up Live at the Old Quarter and it’s amazing. Looking forward to this one.

    From the primer:

    This sounds like the life BoJack Horseman's Dad, Butterscotch Horseman, wanted.

    I'll certainly check it out, but there's not much here to make me want to get it.
