-- Townes Van Zandt

ABOUT THE ALBUM
Blaze Foley - Lost
Available on Vinyl and CD
Reissue of the first album recorded by the legendary Austin singer-songwriter who was tragically murdered in 1989. Recorded with Muscle Shoals studio musicians in 1984, the album was never distributed due to "some trouble with the law" resulting in the confiscation of most of the 500 copies originally pressed.
These recordings find Blaze in a rare studio setting performing ten of his well-known compositions including the apparently timeless resistance song, Oval Room, originally written with Ronald Reagan in mind. The outstanding production values and musicianship breathe fresh air into these classic Blaze compositions. The original recordings have been digitally mastered by Austin engineer Mark Hallman.
