Funny -- I saw her live at a festival in the summer of 2002, right after this album came out, but for some reason I bought Flaming Red instead. I've never heard any of this one.

I agree with you about FR -- too polished and glossy.

(note: I'll be working on a piece for this series over the weekend. Not sure what album, but I have it narrowed down to three, none of which should involve stepping on someone else's toes.)

I will do another soon too, Mac. I no longer have internet at home, but should be able to handle typing it there and bringing to work on a flash drive thingie, then adding links to it here and emailing to you. Life is so difficult when you don't want to pay cable or phone companies. ;-)

As to Patty Griffin, I have heard little other than your occasional praise. I promise to take a listen soon.

Ok, good (to both of you). I also need to go ahead and write a few to hold in reserve, so I don't get caught the night before like this. Also need to contact Michael Martin (are you reading this, Michael?) to see if he plans to do Hounds of Love. I started to do it but remembered that he had mentioned it in the Claims discussion.

I'd *really* hate to be without internet at home, even aside from the fact that the paid work I still do requires it.

The more I think about it, the more I think 1000 Kisses is not the best Patty Griffin album to have picked for this series. At any rate Impossible Dream definitely has some of her very best work. It includes a song called "Mother of God" that I remember as being stunning.

I love Impossible Dream. I love the Kite Song and Love Throw a Line, and several others. It's my cleaning-the-house album.

So far the no internet or cable thing is not bothering me. I'm sure I'll go back sooner rather than later. I became unhappy with Comcast (again) after the move. They are the worst and most incompetent company on the planet (and I told them that). When I return I will try AT&T U-verse; but I'm going to hold out as long as I can!

I haven't had any significant complaints about U-verse. The computers in my study/office/whatever lose their connections from time to time, but I'm pretty sure that's a problem with the physical connection, not U-verse.
