Pancho Needs Your Prayers ...

... it's true.  But save a few for Lefty too.

Oh look!  Since we're talking about Townes Van Zandt, here's Emmy Lou Harris -- still a slip of a girl -- singing Panchy and Lefty.

Pancho And Lefty is one of the great songs of all time.  And who doesn't like Emmy Lou Harris?  Even if this particular performance might be too much orchestration for such a simple song.  But that's just a quibble.  As for Lefty?  He only did what he had to do.

And isn't that life in a nutshell?

Here's a quick interview with TVZ.  Kind of fun ...

Vin Scelsa, New York DJ extraordinaire, has an interesting story about Van Zandt.  If you ever see him you should ask about it.
