The playlist:

1. Le Vent Nous Portera - Noir Désir

2. Dreadful Wind And Rain - Jerry Garcia & David Grisman

3. The West Wind - Ryley Walker

4. Hard Wind - Story Hill

5. Suite For Windy Spring - Propinquity

6. Wind in the Hills - KGB

7. Weary O’ The Darning - Gordon Bok

8. Fragile Wind - Nitin Sawhney & Tina Grace

9. Desert Wind - Kate Wolf

10. Dying On A Windy Day - Manbird Experiment

11. Oldest Living Son - John Stewart

12. Wind and the Mountain - Liz Phair

13. Whispering Wind - Moby

14. Listening Wind - Talking Heads

15. Windy and Warm - Doc Watson

16. The Winds Of Heaven - Hariprasad Chaurasia

17. Spring Wind - Greg Brown

This list is a good bit mellower than I intended but that's the way it came out. Sometimes the project takes its own direction—in this case more conventional than my usual. I still like it but it follows a straighter path than I usually travel. I promise something twistier next time.



 

My albeit brief review: I always know that when Lazy8 is on deck, I will hear tunes to which I simply cannot sit still, as well as some gorgeous world music which transports me to another country - and Windy Day is no exception!  Thanks for the tunes and, especially, thanks for the invitation back into the fold!

The July mix is now in the hands of the US Postal Service. Should be in your mailbox soon. I'll post up the list when I get back from vacation. ENJOY!

In the meantime, for those who have not please get your reviews in on Lazy 8's Windy mix. He was kind enough to step in and pinch hit last month. {#Naughty}

My overdue review. One of the things that stood out for me, aside from the wind, was the great guitar work found in this mix. From the good old strumming of Jerry, the great picking heard on the Ryley Walker & Story Hill tracks to the Kanoodeling of Adrian Belew on Listening Wind. All good stuff. I found I put the Liz track on repeat each time I heard it, so I guess it turned out to be my favorite. And to offset that I hit fast forward on the Chaurasia one which seemed to go on forever LOL. I agree with SirD, the Oldest Living Son sounded straight out of the Northern realm of Lightfoot. 

All in all a very good pinch hitting performance. You can hold your head high! {#Cheers}

Le Vent Nous Portera - Love this song, this is one of those mystery songs in my library that found me. I honestly have no idea how or when I got it! lol

I heard it on RP, tracked down the disc. One of many I owe Bill a thank-you for.
Dreadful Wind & Rain - Love it when Garcia gets back to his bluegrass/folk roots. Seems I have heard other versions of this song, no?

Had a moment of panic wondering if I had used this very version on a previous disc, but no—it was a candidate but I went with another artist for that one. Which is a long-winded way of saying yes.
Dying on a Wind Day - That was actually pretty cool, but what is this Man - Bird Experiment? ;-)

This music takes some space and patience, but it's well worth it.
Oldest Living Son - man do I hear Gordon Lightfoot which is never a bad thing btw

I had to go look, and not only were they contemporaries but the Kingston Trio covered Lightfoot during Stewart's tenure with them. Both prolific songwriters and similar gifts for storytelling. Thanks, I never thought to compare them.

And I've been listening to this since it came out 47 years ago and it still crushes me like a bug.
Wind and the Mountain - just now realized how much Liz Phair sounds like Sheryl Crow or is the other way around, Liz came first, right? Anyway, good song

Other way around—Crow got her start as a backup and session singer about 5 years before Phair, but Phair got a solo album out about 3 years earlier so sort of. And I think Crow is technically a better singer but I have a lot of respect for both as songwriters.
The Winds of Heaven - big water drum fan and as you well know luvs me some furriner music! I would say this is my favorite song in the mix.

I had another from the same album I liked even better but it was even longer (14 minutes!) and I'd have had to push something else aside to fit it. It was tough to cut this one down to fit, could have easily done 2 discs.

As soon as I saw the theme, I immediately thought of all the songs in my own library about wind, wind is a popular inspiration! Per usual terrific art work and packaging. You are right about the mood, I will be bringing this one out late in the evening as the night simmers down and you retire to the back porch to enjoy the company of the ones you love:







Le Vent Nous Portera - Love this song, this is one of those mystery songs in my library that found me. I honestly have no idea how or when I got it! lol



Dreadful Wind & Rain - Love it when Garcia gets back to his bluegrass/folk roots. Seems I have heard other versions of this song, no?



The West Wind - Started kinda like background music, but they really jammed out the last 2 minutes and got my attention!



Hard Wind - love me a fast strummin' accoustic guitar!



Desert Wind - good stuff pretty fancy fiddlin!



Dying on a Wind Day - That was actually pretty cool, but what is this Man - Bird Experiment? ;-)



Oldest Living Son - man do I hear Gordon Lightfoot which is never a bad thing btw



Wind and the Mountain - just now realized how much Liz Phair sounds like Sheryl Crow or is the other way around, Liz came first, right? Anyway, good song



Whispering Wind - Not really a Moby kinda guy, but this was pretty chillax



Windy & Warm - Doc Watson, the man, the myth, the legend! Used to play one of my best friends venues every year, great guy too.



The Winds of Heaven - big water drum fan and as you well know luvs me some furriner music! I would say this is my favorite song in the mix.



Spring Wind - what a well written song, Greg Brown is a fine song writer.

Sent from the same automated kiosk as all the others, but apparently interpretations differ as to what constitutes "rigid" packaging. Your post office bounced what 5 others accepted.

I'll turn it around Monday. My apologies.

 
Arrived safe and sound yesterday, surprised it didn't blow away {#Tongue-out}
Already have ears on it today so feel free to post up the list, I'll catch up to the reviews over the weekend.

I was going to reach out to you today. Glad it was located. No apologies required.
Ironic story about my local post office, recently my cousin mailed me a card and forgot to put a stamp on it. She also didn't put her return address on the envelope. The postman brought it to my house and I gave him 50 cents to cover the postage. Later in the week the post office mailed me 1 cent change as the postage was only 49 cents.
