Terry Allen's 1979 double album, LUBBOCK (ON EVERYTHING), is a 20-song folk-country-pop-jazz-art-weirdness masterpiece. Written and recorded in the somewhat isolated west Texas college town where Allen grew up, it is an ambivalently affectionate record. Allen's west Texas character studies, like the high school football star turned Pinkie's Mini-Mart robber in "The Great Joe Bob (A Regional Tragedy)," are both empathetic and savage, skewering local mores and pretensions with a wit that never becomes mean-spirited. Other tracks, such as "The Collector and the Art Mob" and the surreal "Truckload of Art," give the same treatment to the world of visual art where Allen, an accomplished painter and sculptor, has spent most of his adult life. The album ends with the touching "Thirty Years War Waltz," a valentine to Allen's writer/actress wife Jo Harvey Allen. Despite the often sarcastic lyrics, sweetness and affection shine throughout this album.
