Night Photography - CD SetList

"I came to the conclusion some time ago that the desert is paradoxical - what's true one year might not be true the next."
(from David Darlington's book "The Mojave: A Portrait of the definitive American Desert")

Dream Date #8, Death Valley

Really gearing up for this year's trek down thru the Central Valley to that greatest of Deserts, the Mojave - and our Death Valley NPy Workshop! I have the setlist for the 10-hour drive (over two days) all set up - many of the connections made are obvious (songs like Wild Horse Road, Next Best Western, Kern River, Willin') - other titles, CDs are more oblique, for sure: (Powderfinger, Sketches of Spain, Ultra, Barber's Adagio) - but hey, it's my setlist for a Dream Date!
