Prayer for Relief

It seems the long running dispute over Townes Van Zandt royalties and management of his musical legacy may finally come to a head -- eventually, it has to go through the legal system first so ... let's not be holding any breaths. This 2002 article charts the background to the stoush, which essentially comes down to Jeanene Van Zandt and Townes' kids alleging Kevin Eggers of Tomato Records has been ripping them all off for decades. The long version is contained in the complaint lodged with a New York District Court, which I have a PDF version of if anyone wants to see it.

I hope his kids finally get what's theirs.
