I totally agree. And I'm even American. :puke:
I'm glad Bill put on the red light.

Apparently there is a bug on this site in that the Submit button posts the comment, but fails to navigate you back to the song info.

The McMurtry live record is pretty damn good but his studio stuff just kinda leaves me cold for some reason. Reminds me of Timbuk 3 in his sorta world weary way. If its really this miserable why bother making music about it. :!: :puke:
i'm really trying to find a liking to his vocals, but man. sounds like a clerk at walmart or something. lifeless, flat. love the arrangements, tho. nicely quirky.

I like the "red light" connection, Bill (this and 'Roxanne'). Solid tune by a great artist. Keep 'em coming.

My favorite McMurtry album so far. The whole album is great. Great songs. Great low Telecaster Twang.
