Moving Tribute to Texas Songwriters
31 August 2011 | by bobschwallerSee all my reviews

Just under the glitz and swagger of Texas is a deeply authentic legacy of great songwriting. Which of course means authentic living. Anyone hearing the stories of Vince Bell, Guy Clark, Lyle Lovett, and other stars in the night sky of true western culture as it morphed with the hippie movement of the 60s and 70s will be deeply moved.

While Houston was well on its way to becoming the center of energy and a capitalistic force of nature all on its own, a contrary spirit was also evolving. A little spaghetti restaurant in the Montrose neighborhood quietly build a rep as the place for serious songwriters to get their start.

This documentary tells the story.
