This is a collection of previously-unreleased studio and live material. Originally released in 2002 and deleted for years -- this collection is now made available again in 2012 due to demand. The studio material is as beautiful and sad as "Dirty Old Town," made famous by The Pogues, which is released on CD for the first time here. The oldest song, "Willie Boy," was recorded during the 1991 session for Documentary but didn't make it onto the record. "German Mustard," "Where I Lead Me," "Heavenly Houseboat" and "Nothin'" do have the character of "Famous Last Words," though. They were recorded on December 5th, 1996, 26 days before Townes van Zandt died on New Year's Eve. The other 12 songs on the record are live recordings from a 1994 show in Ireland. On this night in Donegal County, Townes showed his full strength as songwriter and singer. Highly concentrated, inspired and yet very relaxed, he performs his classics as "Flying Shoes," "Marie," "Kathleen" and more rarely-played tracks as "Snowing On Raton" and "No Place to Fall."
