Tough call. i like Diamond because I'm a fan of the short story it's based on. Painted Sky reminds me of when i was young and would ride around my neighborhood on July 5th looking at all the spent firework shells. barefoot is another favorite, but I had to go with Jimmy Dreams. It's just a sweet song full of hope.
Take me for what I am, a star newly emerging.
I accept the new found man, and I set the twilight reeling.

This might be the toughest album to pick just one. Could be might favorite album. But went with Lage Nom Ai. Especially like the way songs progress from Blue Heaven to Jimmy Dreams to Lage and right into Don't Chu Know. Also really like the way album end with Mexico.

Barometer Soup - arguably one of his greatest songs and the best boating song ever. I liked it so much I named my boat after it.

Barometer Soup

It's one of those songs where I will crank the volume up a little bit higher when it comes on.

BAREFOOT is the standout for me here. Struck a chord when I first heard it.

This album is great.

Barefoot Children In The Rain gets our vote. Loved it the first time we heard it.
