Comment:

Nostalgia for a time long departed, when the sun shone, the phrase "job security" wasn't an oxymoron and a pound could get you 2 dollars: August 2008.

Last year, for the family holiday we flew into (and out of) Newark & spent 2 weeks exploring New York & New England, tooling along the highways in a hired Dodge with Little Steven's Underground Garage blasting from the speakers.

It was my first time in this part of the States and every town, every road-sign, every street name seemed to bring forth musical associations. Inveterate list-maker that I am, it wasn't long before I was jotting them down with a view towards an aural souvenir. Here, in strictly chronological order, is the result.

Special tip o' the titfer to Riverwalk Records in Montpelier - I was only able to spe_nd an hour in there but still emerged with a trove of brilliant vinyl treasures. Cheers guys!

This right up my alley, literally. I used to live in the neck of those woods and this mix makes me feel as if I was riding along in the Dodge. And you've got my favorite Mountain track for a closer.
