24 July - Mystics Anonymous

M: Fine Young Cannibals - The Raw & The Cooked
T: The Bangles - A Different Light
W: Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
F: Mystics Anonymous - Dreaming for Hours

This Friday's drive CD is  Mystics Anonymous - Dreaming for Hours, an album I had the pleasure of playing on. The band is the brainchild of my friend Jeff Steblea, and is a collective of sorts, with Jeff at the center of a continually (r)evolving lineup of other players, all mutual friends here in the Valley. Jeff's songs always include the type of aural surprises that make me smile. You're listening along and mentally anticipating the next note or chord change, and then this other theme leaps out of the clouds and the song laughs at your expectations. Magic.
