"Guy Clark's debut from 1975 is one of the all-time classic country singer-songwriter records. By the time of its release, the Texas native had been shopping his tunes in Nashville for a few years and the songs from Old No.1 were already well-aged and oft covered (most notably, Clark's buddy Jerry Jeff Walker had a minor hit with 'L.A. Freeway' on 1972's Jerry Jeff Walker). Regardless, though Clark considers himself more a songwriter than recording artist, nobody holds a candle to these performances. From the rollicking Texas swing of opener 'Rita Ballou' to the fingerpicked heartbreak of closer 'Let Him Roll,' there is not a stinker to be found. Features help from Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell and a young Steve Earle."
