Jim Cox' playing at the end is very similiar to what he did at the end of Marbletown during the 2015 tour.

This one needs to grow on me. I do like the piano and the female vocal backing MK up.
If i was a Fender guitar, Fender painted red...

Another sneaky listen just before bed and MK's fabulous Strat sound/playing has very Hank/Shadows ring to it... Love it...

I thought that might lend itself to your ear, however I can't get into this one at all.  "It's not for me."

This one is really growing for me. Really special mood. I am able to ignore the somewhat strange lyrics at the moment. But as usual, if a song really hits me, I WANT to know..

Number one
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home

It has an unusual atmosphere. Unreal ? I can not explain it.
It sounds more beautiful at night.
I know the way I can see by the moonlight
Clear as the day
Now come on woman, come follow me home
