    Ooh, Xeni, thank you for this. A hot grey solitary summer evening here in New York put me in a certain mood — half nostalgic for the California desert I grew up in, half for my hometown, Miami. This is the perfect soundtrack. Have played it five times in a row, and going back for a sixth. A greyish shade of blue, right on…

    Desert Raven sounded so familiar to me, I thought it was an old CSNY song. I couldn’t place it exactly, though, or where I’d heard it and went hunting. I found an amazing in studio for KEXP that he did just this week on his website: http://www.songsofjonathanwilson.com/. Thanks Xeni, I’m after the vinyl as quick as possible.

    I think we found the source of that Windsor hum.

    I went ahead and purchased his digital album and I have to say that listening to this is like drinking a smooth glass of whiskey. Very chill and mellow. Thanks Xeni!

    Excuse me but The Bard of Motown does NOT spell his last name “Seeger”.

    It is spelled “Seger”.

    Seger, Bob is from Detroit.  Seeger, Pete is a different guy.

    Very nice. Thanks for the link. I hear a little of that Dire Straits guitar sound, but maybe that’s just me imaging things.

    Can’t imagine why you thought this was worth posting, unless you were paid to do so. Bland, unimaginative, repetitive. Forgettable vocals. Und so weiter.
