Oddly, Trey Clark didn’t include a copyright year on this tape, so I can’t tell you when this quietly impressive collection of country love songs was recorded or released, although it’s most likely pre-1995.

I also can’t tell you for certain where he’s from, although all signs point to Houston, Texas (despite 701 South being entirely in South Carolina): there’s a currently active Trey Clark Band based in Houston (I’ve messaged the band on Facebook and awaiting confirmation and, hopefully, more information), and the guy on the J-card resembles this Houston-based guitarist and dog trainer, and a Trey Clark’s been nominated for a Houston Press Music Award. The fella’s written a book, too. Another source reports that Trey’s released four CDs, but I could only locate Never Drift Home from 2003; it’s definitely the same guy.

In any event, this tape is terrific, and listening now, it’s obvious why I held onto it. If you’re a country-music fan, give it a listen! (And if you happen to be a Trey Clark fan from Houston, this is your lucky day!)
