In 1987, Van Zandt was back in business with his eighth studio album, At My Window, which came out on his new label, Sugar Hill. By this time, Van Zandt's voice had dropped to a lower register, but the weathered, somewhat road-weary edge to it was as pure and expressive as ever. Two years later, Sugar Hill released Live & Obscure (recorded in a Nashville club in 1985), and two more live albums (Rain on a Conga Drum and Rear View Mirror) appeared on European labels in the early '90s. Posthumous releases included collections like Last Rights: The Life & Times of Townes Van Zandt and Anthology: 1968-1979, as well as albums like 1998's Abnormal and the following year's Far Cry from Dead, which featured previously unreleased songs.

Townes Van Zandt was an American singer and songwriter. This biography provides detailed information on his childhood, life, music career, achievements and timeline. Childhood & Early Life. Townes Van Zandt was born on March 7, 1944 in Fort Worth, Texas, to Harris Williams Van Zandt and Dorothy Townes. He belonged to a wealthy oil family and his father worked as a corporate lawyer. In 1977, an album containing Zandt’s solo at a 1973 concert was released titled ‘Live at the Old Quarter, Houston, Texas’. It gained considerable success at the time and is still considered to be his best work. He hired a new manager, John Lomax III in 1978, who started a small fan club for Zandt. He checked into rehab many times during 1970s and 1980s. In 1996, Zandt suffered injuries from falling down the stairs and went into medical care 8 days later. On January 1, 1997 he died of cardiac arrhythmia.
Legendary singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt passed away on Jan. 1, 1997. It was practically a self-fulfilling prophecy. He told me three or four times in the last three or four years that he’d live to be 52, his childhood friend Steve Wiener told Texas Monthly a year later. It was the same age Van Zandt's father had died of a heart attack in 1966. Van Zandt's death wasn't a shock to anyone familiar with how he lived his life. But shock isn’t a prerequisite for tragedy. And the tortured fabric that stitches together the lore of Townes Van Zandt wraps the songwriter’s proud simplicity in cult iconography, emotional complexity and enigma.
