Some days require a listen to perfect albums. With the kids' naptime finally arrived, I was looking forward to listening to some of the more experimental sounds from Tom Waits' new Orphans collection. I also planned to give a listen to the new Robert Plant nine disc set. Another choice that I found last night was a new 90-track set by The Doors.
But then I remembered a favorite album of mine from so many years ago that seemed perfect for relaxing in some well-deserved quiet time. And so now I am listening to The Cowboy Junkies' The Caution Horses. Margo and company soothe and satisfy. This is probably the most "comfortable" album I have ever owned.
My favorite lyric from "Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning":
Telephone's ringing, but I don't answer it
'cause everybody knows that good news always sleeps till noon.
Good advice, Margo. And thanks for singing so sweetly.
