(Paradise Of Bachelors) 15 Tracks - 48-page booklet -
The legendary Texas artist Terry Allen occupies a unique position between country music and visual art; he has worked with artists as diverse as Guy Clark, David Byrne and Lucinda Williams and his art is at home in museums worldwide.
His celebrated masterpiece - probably the best concept album of all time - is his minimalist, haunting 1975 debut LP, "Juarez".
The album is the brutal, fragmented story of the chronic American southwest and its border countries. Released in collaboration with the artist and remastered by the original bands, this version of "Juarez" is the ultimate version of the art country classic: the first re-issue on vinyl; the first version with the originally planned artwork (with the lithographs of the first edition) and the first version that puts the album in context with Terry Allen's 50-year art career.
