Usually ready in 2-4 days

1969's Our Mother The Mountain is celebrated singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt's second album and first classic. Recorded in California in the Spring of 1969, once again produced by Jack Clement, it featured a stellar cast of West Coast session musicians, notably James BurtonCharlie McCoy, Don "Richie" Frost and Don Randi. This time around the arrangements and production values complement the songs perfectly showcasing an earnest elegance that wonderfully contrasts the songwriter's dark undertones. Highlights include the much-covered title track, an epic re-recording of "Tecumseh Valley," Townes' artful take on depression "Kathleen," and the tender love songs "Be Here To Love Me" and "Second Lovers Song." 50th anniversary 180g remastered vinyl with tip-on jacket and lyrics included.
