Comments on: "A Sense of Place (North), mix for 2-6-15" (5)

  1. That is definitely an eclectic mix! I’m not a fan of Bob Seger, but there are some great tracks on this list, including the Jan Hammer and the Warren Zevon. And I’m always up for some Kottke, as previously discussed.

    Sorry it’s taken me a while to catch up with your posts.

  2. P.S. I have just read “Driving Toward the Lac Qui Parle River” as recommended. I’ve always been drawn to songs and poetry about place, or any list of place names, really — such as train stops being called out by a train conductor, or lists of destinations on boards at the airport or train or bus station. I think this fascination has something to do with my ever-present desire to be somewhere else.

  3. Great! This mix cheered me up yesterday when I was at home sick. Thank you! I really liked the Knopfler track — not sure I’d heard it before.
