"If dreams were thunder..."

Much as I'd prefer to keep my mystique, here's what was in those pills you took:
Hewn From The Living Vinyl:
Wings: "Let 'em In", Dennis Wilson: "River Song", The Heptones: "Country Boy", T-Bone Burnett: "The Sixties", The Animals: "Club a Go Go", Bryan Ferry: "Shame Shame Shame", Modern Lovers: "Pablo Picasso", Shirley Collins and The Albion Band: "As I Went Out One Morning", The Passions "I'm In Love With A German Film Star", Peter Gabriel: "Here Comes The Flood".
Crackles On Wax
Arthur Alexander: "You're The Reason", Toots: "Dreams To Remember", Little Feat: "New Delhi Freight Train", Bonnie Raitt: "Angel From Montogomery", Andy Pratt: "Avenging Annie", Colin Blunstone: "I Don't Believe In Miracles", Beach Boys: "Kiss Me Baby", Otis Redding: "Hard To Handle", Bryn Haworth: "Let The Days Go By".
By the way, Bonnie Raitt's "Angel From Montgomery" is one of the great covers of all time. It's a John Prine song but she does it way better. For the way she sings "if dreams were thunder and lightning was desire this old house would have burned down a long time ago" she should be carried shoulder high for the rest of her life.
