wonderful vocal work.
This is a song written by a friend.
Hey, JMT! Look what I found! Can you believe this song is 10 years old?
This is a great song. It is one that I do not play enough. It was one of the songs that kind of got swamped with the wave of great songs… great albums… that JMT had in that rush.
Cheerful track :)
Wonderful, James. Thank you for singing the songs in your heart. This world needs them.Summer Loraine Russell
Mighty powerful feelings of aloneness and independence, songs and songwriting/singing a perfect fit! Keith Haas
This is incredible work….music,art , theatre, poetry, all haunted by the truth…the wonderful truth..
James Michael Taylor is a master of the truth..
Thank you James for sharing..

Great stuff, and what a beautiful voice!
OMG I just realized… this has always been one of my most favorite JMT songs… and it comes from one of my most favorite JMT albums(FITW 1976)… the VERY first JMT album I ever owned! An album that was recorded over 40 years ago! I remember when JMT offered it For Sale from the stage of Montana Mining Company in Midland, Texas… and I jumped to buy it! OMG… My dear, dear old friend… has it really… has it really been 40 years? OMG
“The years can kill your spirit. The years you can’t explain
The years that simply melt away… like mascara in the rain.”
Damn… what great words. JMT words.
Words that paint a picture… on the canvas of my spirit. `
The stormy weather these last few days have had me hurting; yesterday was pretty bad… last night worse; this morning bad… very bad. I see JMT sent me a note that he had a new album on Alonetone; I decided to take my pain meds and listen to JMT. At the first sound of Jimmy’s new album… I smiled; my body still hurts, but my spirit has found respite. Thanks, old friend. Thanks, for all the years of respite you have given me.
I love it. I miss your deliverance.
love the vocals and airy harmonies
the vocals have a CSN vibe
Lovely song, beautifully performed :)
really speaks to me …
wow! Dark and very very cool!
2nd listen to this one. It’s really great
This one is kind of Scottish? :)
Great songwriting. The melody is awesome. Rollicking
I like the old style picking
Great lyrics, imho
wow. The guitar is really lovely and so are the vox . Angelic :)
Beautiful composition. I am reminded slightly of Neil Young :)
Lovely picking and the pads are a great support :) Nice!
Nice. I like it.
You asked me who Jack Hardy was…He was a friend of mine, now gone. Beloved by many. This was a bit of teasing him, imitating how he sang. He and I shared a mutual respect. The first time I met him I was sitting under an awning at the Kerrville Folk Festival and he pulled up a chair and said, “Sing me a song.” We were buddies from then on. The day he would arrive at Kerrville was always joyfully anticipated, not just because he made such great spigot. Here is a link to more about him:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Hardy_(singer-songwriter)
That bass is awesome! Great build!
This is beautiful.
wtf, indeed. A sound scape!
This immediately puts me in a mythical meadow with fairies and crickets and lightning bugs at dusk…
This is such a solid track it could go a dozen ways.
Also, thank you for your comment. I had a 7th line clear up until my final mix when I realized how useless it was…your response verifies my thot. The song was start to finish this afternoon.Thanks again.
Crisp and crystal clear!
Perfect for your voice. “aging Silverado…” “so, I don’t say a word, my order is heard.”
Love your voice on this. Like 50s American pop song.
So clean! Really rocks. Sounds like your first language is American English.
Great production! Is that all you playing everything?
So clean. Very interesting…I’m missing some of the words tho. What country are you from?
This really creates a world of it’s own…
I like how you fit your voice and sentiment into this barren acoustic landscape.
Love the tender lyric buried in the storm of sound.
It’s like the instruments are playing footsie.
Iy’s like a meditation…could loop indefinitely
…another sunny song. Great happy groove!
What a sunny song!
Love the rawness of the tracks and the
mix. Just wish the vocal was out a bit more.
I love the chord move you do at the end of line three in the verse. The lyric grabs me from, That she hopes will be the very one
That you decide to wear.“ Because of you voice you use and the sounds it says the object of their desire/affections is David Bowie.My favorite line, among many is, And Blazey’s left her homework on the train.” And, It’s never crossed their minds that you might fail.“
“I’m trying to put you behind me” Ha ha!
Do we ever get past this?
Guitar sounds great!
Really gets the raw sadness. But by the time they tell you it’s over it’s most likely been over for some time…
My friend, George Sluizer was making a film with River Phoenix and asked me to submit some music to possibly be used in the movie. He didn’t end up sing this but he did use four other of my submissions.
