Additional Information

Guy Clark's debut from 1975 is one of the all time classic country singer-songwriter records. By the time of its release the Texas native had been shopping his tunes in Nashville for a few years and the songs from Old No. 1 were already well aged and often covered. Regardless, though Clark considers himself more a songwriter than a recording artist, nobody holds a candle to these performances. From the rollicking Texas swing of opener Rita Ballou to the finger picked heartbreak of closer Let Him Roll there is not a stinker to be found. Features help from Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and a young Steve Earle.

I picked out a gray kitten at the shelter a year ago so that I would one day have "an old gray cat" like the one Guy mentions in That Old Time Feeling, my favorite song on this record. At some time or another, most every song on this wonderful record has been my favorite. The songs are incredible, the kinds that really stick to you for a long time. They make you feel something. The performances are equal to the songs.
I didn't bother with a review initially after purchasing the record because I didn't see a point -- I've had Old No. 1 in some format or another for as long as I can remember. I dig it out often. I wanted a new vinyl copy and I must say the re-issue does sound great. Anyway, I didn't write a review because I figured anyone who might read it was probably already familiar with this record and certainly didn't need me to tell them how powerful it is. Guy passed away two days ago, though, and maybe you're reading this because you heard about that and curiosity... Read more
This album is an absolute must have for any Guy Clark fan. Listening to these songs, I think I understand much more of how this magician's words and music have found their way into Texas songwriter history. It sets the bar very, very high for any aspiring songwriter who may come down the pike.
I had this album in the mid 70s and lost it in my many moves.
Recently rediscovered it and was amazed at how good it really was/is. Also checked up on how Clark had weathered the 40+ years. He got 40 years with the love of his live before she went on and he is still writing, performing, and living life.
