Comment:

for someone really special.

it's all really folky, intimate material, it's all really hushed & wistful & sadly sweet, & it's pretty much quietly bursting at the seams with longing & yearning, & it rarely if ever rises above a whisper. it's a perfect reflection for not only how i feel about its recipient & our relationship, but how i feel about life in general right now.

Whuh? This is a change! A positive change, though. Great stuff that conjures your mood pretty precisely. Love, love, love that Nina song, along with just about all of the rest.

One of my favorite lullabyes to start off and a few other choice picks. Nice, Anthony.

Gorgeous, heart-wrenching little mix, Anthony. I especially love #13, which has become one of my favorites, but the rest is glorious as well.

Wonderful mix...I'll bet it's perfect for its intent. Really like the Waits and Crooked Fingers in particular.

of course i know how much this mix means to you, and i'm glad you ultimately decided to post it. it's beautiful and fitting and sums things up perfectly. also, i hope you found satisfaction in the title and didn't just "settle" on something. but it feels right to me.

This might be my favorite type of mix, at least some of the time. The R&L Thompson song is great.
