Now a decade old, I thought I would revisit this mix again. I have done this a few times as I continue to learn the craft. I thought it would be a good exercise to undertake as a start thinking about writing again for the next record.

AS always, wonderfully done. Crisper tones and higher fidelity. Your voice sounds amazing; every time I try to remix something I lose the charm, you have kept the charm and added sparkle!

As I have mentioned in other years, I am so very blessed to have some songs come to me in my dreams. Grace is one of them. The specific line "Grace, grace, grace! You don't have to be a lonely child" is what I retained in my waking moments so…

Aww yes... I was frantically exchanging messages with a crazy person while it was all playing... so I gotta come back when it's quiet (maybe when I'm working next week)... maybe even read the blurbs that go with the songs... but yeah, loved it... how do you manage this every year??!

Originally I had a Motown idea in mind, and I kept my stomping and clapping, but the song seemed to lend itself to a more spacey-synthey feel, so I ran with it. I also am hinting a tiny (very tiny) bit at Joe Jackson's band's backing vocal styles…

Never forget the simple pleasure of just listening to music. I wrote a whole album about a few years ago called The Lost Art Of Listening. This one's about how a song can simultaneously take you away from the concerns of life, yet make you feel…

Killer tune G!

We're so quick to judge others. We really shouldn't. This one follows the tone of It Mattered To No One Else. I actually had a lot more song ideas like these two that I thought would end up being the whole record. But it didn't happen that…

The Again, Again, Again line and melody has been flowing through my brain since 2017 or so. But if we are merely vessels for songs that are waiting to come to our shores, I was a leaky boat for a very long time and couldn't make the journey without…

Love the DADGAD guitars😀😀😀

And now a complete change. I like variety, and this introduces a new feel to the record. Until the mid-section, when the spacey connection returns, though in a subtle way.

sounds like Jehtro Tull channeling late period Beatles

Ok, this one has a journey for its creation. The original riff actually came to me in the heat of late August 2013. I still remember when it came to me. It was in a different key, with a slight different resolution. It felt like a hot summer's…

see, if i'd known you were gonna reference "stardust" in the lyrics of multiple songs then that certainly would have been the title I would have suggested. :-D

Another one where the riff came first, on the last day of RPM 2020 actually. Before all the craziness struck. I thought to myself "Oh self! That's a good riff! I will need to revisit it next year for RPM 2021." So I did. It also has a call-back…
