The dean of Texas songwriters has live albums under his belt. Now approaching 70, Guy Clark's most recent performances, such as this one – recorded in 2009 at Nashville, Tenn.'s Belcourt Theatre – have a solemnity and sense of purpose that's deeper than anything he's done in the past. Chock-full of crowd-pleasers plus a mystifying tale of Townes Van Zandt's "If I Needed You," Clark and his band once again weave a beguiling spell.
