Terry Allen excites strong emotions in his fans. Andy Kershaw reckons he’s the best troubadour in the world. Ex-Blaster and Uncut hero Dave Alvin writes in his sleevenotes that Juarez equals Blood On The Tracks and Randy Newman’s Good Old Boys as one of the great songwriter records of the ’70s.

First released in 1976, every one of its sparsely arranged songs is a universe in itself. Bad-boy ballads, bittersweet love and honky-tonk existentialism all make their contribution to a record that deserves to be recognised as a landmark of modern Americana.
