Legendary Texan artist Terry Allen occupies a unique position straddling the frontiers of country music and visual art; he has worked with everyone from Guy Clark to David Byrne to Lucinda Williams, and his artwork resides in museums worldwide.

Widely celebrated as a masterpiece – arguably the greatest concept album of all time – his spare, haunting 1975 debut LP Juarez is a violent, fractured tale of the chthonic American Southwest and borderlands. Produced in collaboration with the artist and meticulously remastered from the original analog tapes, the May 2016 reissue is the definitive edition of the art-country classic: the first reissue on vinyl; the first to feature the originally intended artwork (including the art prints that accompanied the first edition); and the first to contextualize the album within Allen’s fifty-year art practice.

His deeply moving (and hilarious) satirical second album, a complex memory palace to his West Texas hometown Lubbock, is often cited as the urtext of alt-country.

Though Juarez has been compared to Willie Nelson’s Red Headed Stranger as one of the great country concept albums, Allen has little interest in any kind of movement, “outlaw” or otherwise. He’s always followed his own road. Grim, funny, epic and intimate all at once, Juarez belongs in a genre unto itself. – James Sullivan, Rolling Stone

Juarez was never just an album. Its lurid visuals and lucid poetry emerged simultaneously as an entire mythos, like something that fell out of a dream. – Robert Barry, The Quietus
