I received my copy of M. Ward's Hold Time this morning. Let me tell you, that LP's a thing of beauty. I love that it's a double fold out sleeve. It's too bad the cover looks nothing like the CD cover. 

.1990
The same artwork is featured inside though.

.1994

.1983

.1982
I couldn't decide whether I liked the first 
or second one best so I chose both!
.1981

I'm rediscovering the album and enjoying its retro sound. It's one of those albums that's timeless. The best ones always are. The same tracks stand out as on my mp3 version: 
  • Rave On (with backing vocals by Zooey Deschanel)
  • Never Had Nobody Like You (with backing vocals by Zooey Deschanel)
  • To Save Me (which I'm liking even more)
But I also had to admit that the duet with Lucinda Williams is pretty damn moving. And I don't even like Lucinda Williams' voice. 

And this pretty much sums up the last few days for me.

.1970 
A record and an ankle brace. The pain's gone now.

It's so cool that you listen to music in this way. And I hope that your ankle feels better.

Des,
I love listening to music on this record player. It's really great.
I thought my ankle was better, but it isn't. Thanks for the well wishes.
