AllMusic Review by

Even when Guy Clark was young, he sounded like an old man with a weathered voice, suggesting a life fraught with experience. It is fitting, then, that 30 years into his career he sounds as spry as he does on WORKBENCH SONGS--his 12th full-length--as time has found Clark just hitting his stride. The album's no-frills production does justice to his West Texas wordplay, and this song cycle, including a great cover of "No Lonesome Tune" by his friend Townes Van Zandt, is among his finest.
