The Best Of Townes Van Zandt is a compilation album by American singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt, released in April 2019 via Fat Possum Records.

Townes Van Zandt, was an American songwriter widely regarded for his poetic, often heroically sad songs. Much of his life was spent touring various dive bars, often living in cheap motel rooms and backwoods cabins. For much of the 1970s, he lived in a simple shack without electricity or a phone.

He suffered from a series of drug addictions, alcoholism, and bipolar disorder. When he was young, the now discredited insulin shock therapy erased much of his long-term memory.

Van Zandt died on New Years Day 1997 from cardiac arrythmia caused by health problems stemming from years of substance abuse. The 2000s saw a resurgence of interest in Van Zandt. During the decade, two books, a documentary film titled Be Here to Love Me, and a number of magazine articles about the singer were written.

The Best Of Townes Van Zandt is a unique collection of songs from the career of Texas singer-songwriter Townes Van Zandt.

This limited Record Store Day 2020 double 2LP record is on 180 gram heavyweight Tiger’s Eye coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve. Pressed in the US and limited to 2000 copies.
