I actually just got this CD only a few months ago, and while I love the CD as a whole, there is no singular track that stands out for me. I chose Fruitcakes because it was one of my favorite songs way back (about 5 years) and I love hearing it live and I love the video.

One of Jimmy's perfect albums where I like ALL of the songs.

I chose Uncle John's Band-I heard it live once and it's fantastic.
It's probably one of my favorite covers by Jimmy.

I don't really have a favorite on this one so I voted for Frenchman For The Night since I just went to Paris last month. 8)

Lone Palm....because my daughter and I break in to song every time we walk past papayas or mangos in the produce department....

My garden is filled with papayas and mangos
My life is a mixture of reggaes and tangos

Lone Palm, I like the music and lyrics. There's not really a "bad" song though.

Six String Music just has that country feel to it. I can picture Jimmy sitting in that rocker on the porch in one of the promo photos. Or sitting out on the old pier on the bay somewhere playing for the fish. :)

it was hard to pick this one over Apocalypso. That is one of his best songs too. I loved when they did this on The Letterman show in 1994..we'll be dancing when we go.

This album came out in 1994 just as I got married, was finishing law school and me and the wife were getting ready to head out into life. It was also at about the height of my fanaticsm over Jimmy. When I heard Delaney Talks To Statutes I swore I would name my daughter that some day.

She turns 6 a week from Friday.

This and Floridays are his two most underrated albums. This one is solid from start to finish.

I have asked this trivia question before. When Jimmy start playing some of the songs during the 1993 tour the album had a different working title. Anyone remember what it was?

Lone Palm. Great tune. Needs to pull this out live for me sometime soon. Fantastic album. Love Fruitcakes, Cousin, Vampire, but hate Apocalypso.

I love this whole album
..'cept for Vampires... which seems like a complete oddity on this collection
