One of my favorites. He also does one called "Cajun Waltz," which I'd like to be the pace of my life. Thanks for a Friday boost

One of my favorites, too. I sometimes listen to it two or three times in a row. Glad you enjoyed it.

In the tradition of "mistakes were made," Cajun Waltz is from Taj Mahal. Similar mood. Also, St. Tropez, (Pink Floyd) will keep the mellow mood going. I'm ready for the island right now. Sorry, wanted to correct my error.

Leon's "Alice Blue Gown" is what I thought of when you mentioned "Cajun Waltz". That one sticks with me too. Otherwise, this was a bit surreal. "Back to the Island" is one of my all time favorites, and permanently on my subconscious play list. (You know, with the little voices.) I have a friend who is working on actually moving to the Virgin Islands, and the song starts up for me every time he talks about it! I just quoted some of the lyrics to him on Facebook a day or so ago. Love it!
