Guy Clark is the type of musician that doesn’t having many casual fans. He has people that don’t miss him when he comes to town because the music is great and best appreciated amongst friends with a frosty beverage in hand.
One of my favorite songs of all time to sing along to is his “L.A. Freeway”….but it has to be the live version. If you don’t have a bootleg of your favorite show handy, the “live from Austin, TX” album version does just fine.
I imagine that some people who are raised in the country leave for the city and never want to go back but a lot of us leave for opportunity but never for good. If you fit into the later group, then this is a song for you.
So without wasting anymore of your time with my praise, here is live performance from youtube so you can check it out for yourself.
