Everyone have a good New Year’s Eve/Day? Gotta say, it’s nice to have the holidays behind us. Looking forward to the new year.
The first post of 2006 has me going back to an album from 2005 that I’m spending more time with lately: Rob Dickinson’s Fresh Wine for the Horses. I realize I’m doubling up here, having posted on Dickinson in October. But Fresh Wine is making headway in my iPod. I think the first few times around I wanted something more in the vein of Catherine Wheel; now that I’ve let go of that expectation, I’m able to better enjoy Dickinson on his own.
These are songs he performed for NPR member station WXPN’s World Cafe program in December.
Rob Dickinson, on WXPN’s World Cafe:
