Early Van Zandt album shows the evolution of a master songwriter

Well, In the Beginning, which is really the “first album,” is Townes the way the Good Lord intended. Except for a few cuts with bass and drums, it’s simply the man and his guitar. His voice is young, but still has that crack on some lines that in anyone else would be a flaw but in Townes is gut-wrenching.

Townes' best album, I agree and absolutely essential.
