Guy Clark Releasing Live Album in August

Singer-songwriter Guy Clark performs new versions of several of his classics on Songs and Stories, a live album set for release on Aug. 16 by Dualtone Music Group. The album was recorded at Nashville’s Belcourt Theatre with a band that included guitarists Verlon Thompson and Shawn Camp, bassist Bryn Davies and drummer Kenny Malone. The recording features Clark’s insights into the inspiration behind songs such as “L.A. Freeway,” “The Randall Knife,” “Homegrown Tomatoes,” “The Cape,” “Dublin Blues” and others. It also includes his interpretation of “If I Needed You,” a song written by his late friend, Townes Van Zandt.
