I came home to a really nice present.....,

My birthday's happening in about a week. I really hadn't paid much attention to it, there's been a lot of stuff going down. When I walked through the door tonight a package was waiting there. My daughter Amanda had burned a CD of what she described as "Road Music for going down the highway.....
Sixteen tracks, Seventy three minutes. There was no song list and I'm still listening to it, but it's heavy blusy, not quiet, lots of fuzz and there's Stevie, and Carlos, and George, and Bruce, and Jimmie........
It's the sort of thing that really demands at least 200 watts and mega bass with the top down on a warm night and the hell with anybody else - chill out man.

I was about to install a new audio system in the Jeep.. I know what I'm going to use to christen it.

........ and I'm smiling in a way that I haven't been able to do much of lately.

"why don't you come with me little girl...
.... on a magic carpet ride."
".......Let the sound take you away..........."

Thank You Amanda.

edit: I made it to the last track. Dusty and the boys..... Has anybody ever done a better piece of road music then "LaGrange" ?????

Hmmmm, Hmmmm, Hmmmmmm ???
