Yikes 1989! 

This is an example of a "timeless" song - very hard to pick the decade never mind the year from listening to it so proves that it is quality.

Chills. Every time. Haunting and never old.
One unique collaboration and a timeless album.
Thanks, RP!!

Saw her as warm up for fellow alumni Lyle Lovett at the Greek Theater in Berkeley.  That whole show ruined me for many subsequent concerts.

Shaun - you are a goddess of the singer songwriter business!  What a success! 
Hey Ol' Dirty Bastard - you inept dingle-berry.  Where are you? Jail, the ghetto, dead from a self inflicted gun shot?
No just dead from a drug over-dose.  Go figure...

I'm with you, Cynaera!  I lived in a tent for two years when I was a crazy young hippie chick, and I played this almost every night while I stood by my campfire, trying not to freeze to death, and gazing up at the stars and Northern lights between the pines over head.  "Dead of the Night" was my soundtrack song.

This whole CD is incredible.  I play it when I need inspiration to write - "Dead of the Night" is moody, brooding, and incredibly beautiful. After the first time I heard it, I put a notebook and a pencil next to my bed, and I wrote down all my dreams. (Boy, my subconscious is a skeery place.) I even wrote a short story called "Dead of the Night" which had nothing to do with the topic of the song. Shawn Colvin is my muse, I think. 

'Scuse me - gotta go fish out my "Steady On" CD and listen to it through the headphones. I feel a story brewing...

Cynaera, how can it be that you still inspire me? Empathy, methinks.

Did I conjure this? Are the Nields next? The Ambien isn't working....

 And that's an Empire turntable, if I'm not mistaken.

OMG I have that same amp sitting on my desk!  My Dad bought it new sometime in the late 60's?  Did a deep clean on it a couple of years ago and listening to RP on it now.  Still sounds great.

 
Its a Sony STR-7065 I bought back in the early 70's...Great sounding receivers.

Lying in bed with my lover, to be my second wife, the mother of my children.
Listening to this. 1991.
Thinking about our entire future lives.
"This is the best thing, and the very most hard."
Chills.
The entire CD is unparalleled
