Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2019-05-01 
American singer songwriter of the highest order, on par with the greats of folk, country. Though he lived a life of destitution, drug addiction, mental illness, his works and relationships were well revered, legendary. He passed in 1997 but these are newly discovered versions of his music. Low fi simple element. All just him and a guitar (if there are overdubs I missed them) and could be recorded with a simple battery powered machine in the shack he lived in during the ‘70’s that had no running water, electricity. His song Pancho and Lefty made famous by Willie Nelson and Emmy Lou graces this collection. Wiki: “His influence has been cited by countless artists across multiple genres, and his music has been recorded or performed by Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Counting Crows, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen Jr., Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark, Wade Bowen, Gillian Welch, Pat Green, Colter Wall, Calvin Russell and Natalie Maines.” Greatness defined. Play with the Billy Sedylmeyer and Steve Gunn presently on the afile.

1) (2:50) simple minor keyed capo’ed strummed 2)* (2:13) pretty picking 3) (3:51) lilting waltzing traditional folk ballad feel 4) (2:32) Travis picking type ballad 5) (2:26) minor sad waltzing strumming. 6) (2:55) hillbilly folk front porch 7)* (3:52) Pancho and Lefty, song made famous by Emmy Lou and Willie Nelson among others, nice finger picking and epic ballad 8) (2:04) dark toned plains country soaring vocs 9)* (5:27) slow triplet with 12 string and low fi phasing 10) (1:55) simple traditional ballad tone 11)* (3:42) lovely and dense
