Review of Guy Clark – My Favorite Picture Of You (Dualtone)

Guy ClarkConsidered a songwriting hero to many (including Lyle Lovett), Guy Clark has yet to earn household name status. For shame, too because My Favorite Picture Of You, his first record of new music in four years is practically as wonderful as anything else he has released in his career. At 71 years old, Clark’s songwriting is as a strong as ever, falling into the realm of time-honoured folk and country music. His ability to mix day-to-day observations with thoughtful yet simple insight is both endearing and nothing short of amazing. While Clark might not be vaulted into the spotlight with this record, do yourself a favour and check it out.
