1. Track 2, Lounge Divine - Santana
A stunning mash-up of Santana music created by two European friends I've known for years, but only through the Internet.
2. The Angel Cried Out - Russian Chamber Choral (Tchaikovsky: Vespers)
This Tchaikovsky composition was my lifeline during my lonely days in Alexandria, Virginia.
3. Enigmatic Ocean, Part 2 - Jean-Luc Ponty
Sounds of my spiritual awakening in Phelan in the late '70s.
4. Orthodox - The Rastafarians
Life saving Santa Cruz reggae.
5. A Night in Tunisia - Lee Morgan
Lee Morgan makes everything about life better.
6. Represente - Orishas
The soundtrack to my first five years in Toronto, back when I studied Afro-Cuban conga with Jesus Valdez, the Aztec Clave.
7. The Way and the Truth - Kephas
Kephas (Richard Gonzalez) is an unbelievable, unsigned guitarist who does Carlos Santana better than Carlos has done Carlos in the past 8 years.
8. Father and Son - Cat Stevens
Deep, deep memories which have been waiting as a sign of my new reality.
9. Welcome to Mexico - Cheech & Chong
Cooler than you may think.
10. Agrippina, Act 2 - Lorriane Hunt
Another sign of the lonely days in Alexandria. This is a copy of the album I bought for Jim Wind for Christmas 2004.
11. Born Under a Bad Sign - Jimi Hendrix
This song proves Jimi will always be the baddest dude around.
12. Ai Ga Bani - Ali Farka Toure & Toumani Diabate
Pure. African. Beauty.
13. Moanin' Dove - Michelle Shocked
Michelle Shocked is so beautiful. "Moanin' Dove, Moanin' Dove. Lord that's what I be. Moanin' for your precious love. Your love is what I need."
14. Tall Trees in Georgia - Leah State
The best rendition of this Buffy Sainte-Marie song besides Buffy herself.
