Quietly Making Noise

It's one of those songs that feel comfortable and you like the first time you hear it.

I picked this album up off E-Bay last year and it has begun one of my favorites.

Delaney Talk to Statues - any Jimmy song about his daughters just rings true to me.
I've got a Caribbean soul I can barely control, and some Texas hidden here in my heart.

I too like "Love in the Library". Sounds like something that could happen to me, and not just in Jimmy's world.

I can also see myself singing this on karaoke night at the Tiki Bar.

Uncle John's Band because it is a great cover and a living tribute to another great musician.
Now I know this Joe down in Mexico.
He went there to work on his tan.
For years he's been plugged into blenders and songs.
They call him the Twelve Volt Man

Lone Palm. Not real reason except that at Dartmouth, the Lone Pine was one of the important symbols, so Lone Palm is a little more meaningful.

This is one of the hardest albums for me to choose a favorite song. I went with "Fruitcakes" but it could easily have been any of the first six tracks. Very strong album
