This comes together as if meant to be. Each track flows into the other w/perfect harmony and feeling. This piece - as it really is all one piece - floats through the mind, nudging long-dormant synapses, gently awakening the deepest memories of being.

I don't even know how to describe this mix - yes, it's many parts Beach Boys, circa Pet Sounds/Smile through Holland; and yes, it's a few parts late-Beatles - but it is very much more. Never before have I heard a mix that so aptly captured what the mixer set out to capture - here the coming of the sun - and in my case, sitting on my patio, gazing up at my maple tree while a cool breeze ripples the liquid in my pool and in my beer - the sun is going down and the tiki torches are being lit and the kids are in bed and we're talking about sailing away from here once and for all...... The opening is outstanding - and each subsequent track melts into the next like an ice cube in a glass of iced tea. There are no individual tracks here - they've become one - they've merged and married and melded together to welcome warmth back to this little corner of the world. When I was about 12 years old - we were at the beach and it was a hot, sticky, sultry South Jersey day. "Sailing" by Christopher Cross was a hit then. I know, I know - he sux - that's the point here though - I have a very vivid memory of that song wafting over the multitude of beach-goers' boom boxes one afternoon as the hazy August heat lay heavy on our heads. It was like the greatest symphony in the world was playing the greatest song in the world at that moment on that overcrowded beach - everything was right - the heat - the humidity - the day - the warmth of the sun - the promise of steamed clams for dinner - the whole thing was right there. That's what this mix is.

After popping this in yesterday, I realized that my wildest imaginations of what this might sound like had not prepared me for what actually flowed from my headphones. This is stunning - just stunning - I still haven't gotten over the listening experience - new worlds have opened - new universes formed - new eggs hatched. Outstanding on all counts.

Another classic Valis mix. And that merely means you find yourself lost in the middle of this thing, but never really worried that you won't find yourself home. You are lead down incredible new paths that open your ears to sounds only heard in dreams - new worlds to explore at every track-turn. A real wonder from a wonderful mixer.

If it were possible to pick a favorite from this series - this mix would likely be it - by why pick a fave when they are all so good AND make up a complete picture. Choosing a favorite would be like saying my favorite color in Van Gogh's paintings is burnt sienna (a fine color b/t/w) -
