"...figures like Mr. Van Zandt remind us that the wandering bard, that American archetype, is still very much with us. He's the guy in the cowboy hat, sitting in the corner of the bus station with his beat-up guitar case. And his music will live long after the voices that declare it in or out of fashion have been stilled and forgotten."
Excerpt from "A Hard Road, Seldom Taken" by Robert Palmer, "The New York Times," June 7, 1987.
