An Autumn mix ... a mix that brings to my mind falling leaves & stompy boots & pumpkin cupcakes & plucking guitar strings & stripy socks & favorite sweaters & no need to wear blush & scary movies & brisk morning walks & candy corn & extra blankets. Driving with all the windows down up the valley ... wowing at the contrast between the colorful forest canopy & the bright green cool-season grasses that line the valley floor. (the artwork is a picture taken last October of the persimmon tree in my front yard)

Track Description:
You think this one will be an instrumental the first time you hear it. Or at least I did & am still sort of startled when he starts singing in it because I'm never expecting it. The perfect beginning to a possibly perfect journey.

Track 3 from It Still Moves
Length: 00:04:39
Year: 2003
Track Description:
"Talk is often cheap & filled with air..." I could lose my mind listening to this man sing. Exceptional in every way. Fall wouldn't be Fall without this song & driving wouldn't be half as introspective an experience for me without this album echoing through my car. I fell in love with being alive again because of It Still Moves.

Track 3 from Heartbreaker

Year: 2000
Track Description:
"Eyes that dance around without their clothes ..." OH Ryan, this man can do no wrong & this song belongs right HERE. The guitar leads my mind away & I can see much meandering & shuffling of feet & squinching of my freckled, smiling cheeks in the future when I hear it.

"There's no value in education it's just lies & pens & paper & notebooks." Port O'Brien rocked me down to my argyles just last Monday. They are my flavor of the month (next to Baskin & Robbins Nutty Coconut ... cause DAMN! that's good stuff)

Track Description:
"I told you all I know but you want someone I'm not" This song gets a lot of play ... their voices blend so well & there's that gritchy, gravelly thing going on that I've always preferred in my male singers. I saw them recently & I smiled right down to my guts the entire time.

A newly rekindled romance is heating up between Elf Power's acoustic Daytrotter session & I. Some of their stuff is a bit over the top for my tastes, but some fits perfectly into my ever lengthening quest for boom-a-chucka perfection.

Track 6 from Post-War
Length: 00:04:00
Year: 2006
Track Description:
"What do you do with the pieces of a broken heart?" I got to see him do this one live @ the beginning of the month & it was even sweeter live than on the album (if you can imagine that)! The beginning bit of guitar in this one is EXACTLY the sound my brain assumes leaves make as they bumble & tumble on down the road in their colorful way.

"They put you up in the bluebird sky until they lose sight of you" ... I was surprised to find that Tim Easton wasn't in the database yet. He's got such a strong voice & has been around for so long. I love the rambling guitar in this & the sentiment of loss & regret that it carries.
