Day Of Rest


Uploaded .

Final version
Day 28
Anyone else still writing songs?

this is the result of trying to listen to too many mixes in one day. Sometimes it’s just easier to record something else.

Hi Stu, what a fantasic RPM. Every track a gem and unnervingly authentic. Feel like I've been listening to a Smithsonian archive release. Glad you used One Thing, it's achingly beautiful. Standout for me is Take Yourself to Bed. Even gives Ralph Stanley a run for his money. And Chicken! cracks me up. Brilliant.

One of my favorite things about finishing the RPM Challenge is that I know you'll have an album finished, too, that I can hear. Day of rest is exactly right. I'm just loafin' this weekend!

Stormin' album! Totally loved it. I'd be begging for swapsies if I had one to swap this year.

i held off listening to too many of your demos so i could just sit down and have my mind totally blown at one time. and it is. your one of most talented fellows doing this free music stuff. your last two rpm's are in a master class that has few members.

Ok, last word from me on this, as I'm sure it's getting old by now: that is one helluva great album.
