Terry Allen’s Juarez Gets Reissued
Growing up in Texas, I feel like Terry Allen should be required in your listening education. While he’s possibly been overlooked, he’s always had a unique place in the pantheon of the state, with perhaps his best outing being Juarez (1975). Luckily for those of you who missed it (or didn’t have music obsessive dads like mine), Paradise of Bachelors is releasing his masterpiece, with a deluxe edition featuring tons of Terry’s art. Sure there’s Willie and Stevie, sure there’s Daniel Johnston, but Mr. Allen is a jewel no matter which way you spin it. The album gets reissued on May 20th.
