When first released in December 2023, we also did a separate acoustic mix with just my one guitar part and Annie Bacon singing harmony.    I was told several times that they like the sparse version better.  So before heading back into the studio, I released this specal Acoustic Mix version.    Hope you like it too.

“Favorite Album is Blue” was written as a song assignment at Lamb's Retreat for Songwriters in November 2022.   The assignment was to write a song about two kids spinning records.  When I envisioned them, I saw Joni Mitchell's Blue album in the girl's hand and many classic albums scattered on the floor.  Classic 70's song and album titles are intertwined in the lyrics as I tell the story of these two kids spinning records and her favorite album is “Blue”.

Salty Dog Sea Shanty was written as a song assignment from the Above the Bridge Songwriting Retreat in 2022.  I think a pirate came by my room that night and gave me the song.  It took me all of 20 minutes to write and about 3 weeks to play.   It only has 3 chords (E, Am, C with capo on 5th fret) but the changes are very quick.  I really think it can be fun to learn to play.   Purchase the song and receive all the lyrics and chords.
