Two of the songs on this album, "Too Long Running" and "Peaches", were on a mix tape given to me many years ago in college. I haven't had a tape deck in quite a few years, but I have been buying myself some favorite songs from that period in my life lately since I've gotten a car that plays nicely with my iPod and I get a little more time to listen to my music now that my kids are in school every day.
"Too Long Running" is kind of a love song from someone who's "not the hang-around kind" to a person who "make it easier for me to stay." It is catchy, and I still like it, but I had forgotten that song in the past 20 years.
"Peaches" is the real reason I bought this album, and it wasn't available on iTunes, so I came here and found the CD. It is a kind of stream-of-consciousness "I miss you" song from a lover left behind by her partner who is away (on business? visiting family?) It reminds me of that period in my life when college, then work, would separate me from my friends and significant other for stretches of time that felt interminable back when time moved so much more slowly.
I've listened to the rest of a album a couple of times through, and I like it, but none of the other songs has reached out to grab me the way those two have, but perhaps that is because I'm hearing them at the wrong stage of my life (happily married, choices made, settled down.) It is a nice album with at least a couple of gems, and, if you are intrigued for any reason, I say go ahead and give it a try.
