Keep Your Eye on the Road

    I lost (or perhaps a better way to put it is that Time Warner misplaced it) my internet last night, but I've got it back.  And since I live in one of the sections of NYC that never lost power during Hurricane Sandy, I can't complain too much.   Regular readers/downloaders of this blog will remember that I tend to post road song compilations around this time of year and this year it's no different.  The mix below is a little more mellow than usual.  I don't know why exactly - perhaps I'm just mellowing out a bit. :)

Thanks. Always nice to hear that! (And I don't mean to pat myself on the back, but the Jim James Dylan cover is a great leadoff track (and I can't pat myself too hard since I think it is the firs track on the I'm Not There soundtrack.
