    There is the first album, I get the first album. In fact, I paid fine currency for it. (A voice in my ear says, "wah we say next"?) You see there are no words. The second was - recording wise, and arrangement ... perhaps better to my listening. I've always been a bit divided about this however, because as a rock album - pop rock, that is - the sound recording improved, could have stood out. I am challenged in my listening of rock music, the seventies take. You may have to give it to the Brits, the Americans would never would admit it ... so goes that division. It IS all math. The second, goes for the Americans - I think. We are talking arrangement here. Maybe I haven't been listening. These last efforts have not met - in my mind. It is in my opinion, don't put out what you are not willing to stand by - and that includes judy collins ... who I think is British. Does this stand up? Speaking of stands. I understood 52, it resonates with my age. That is to say, it doesn't mean all of the music was publisheable to an audience. The question there is should you have release all ... I think"the best of ..." is indicated. So you see, I think that this is a process of editing, not only in the studio. Correct me if I am wrong (or don't correct me as these things go) .... but these last series of releases are more in keeping with the project aspect of 52. That is the incubation process to create new music - it is understandable that some will be put aside for later work. That is an edit. Generally the artist might go back for inspiration to those songs put aside and or possibly rework to see how to move it ahead ... does it meet new inspection. Here we are thinking 'to be released' .... So one must question if this is what you are doing ... working through those songs put aside. In which case these years have been an extension of that 'residency' approach. There is something about folk music, if we are to call it that ... alignment with Collins will give you that impression Then these years are artist in residence as your explanation for 52 states .... see, here's thing ... do you think it got better? But this is an aside, and I'll continue - I asked someone about this, does the 'modern folk singer of today' have something to say? He was rather cynical that you do. I even tried to sell something that you did ... or, I should say, "the yous" of this bus -- that is, independent folk musician. Is my expectation to be different BECAUSE you are independent? Are you trying to meet that expectation? Because if you are ... the OTHER bus here ... you know the conglomerate studio, thinks the independent can't meet the sound etc. they can. Is that true? Or did you just meet our expectation that you can't. I may not have necessarily like the two self produced digital recordings - Guilty Hearts and Green Room, merely because of the nature of a digital recording versus analogue ... the clarity is not there (I think) But they were far ahead .... and the arrangement, which is the key, is where you surpassed expectation for digital. Which is another play on words ... are we talking the apple or the orange here? Maybe I ought to take another listen.

    Hey Man - see? I don't get this transition. Here - is Consistency at the Roxy: https://archive.org/details/ahest2005-05-26.mk4.nbox.shnf Nice recording. Then solo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97hlmp2oJMI The above is good. It's also really difficult to do in my opinion. John Mayer works it too, and lately - what is his name? There is something about a shape. It's a girl he's talking to ... Hah. He was on Jules Holland. Was it just guitar? I keep thinking "dre" - I don't think that's right. We tend to go Bard solo guitar ... otherwise durge. We hope for Bard. ps your date is off.

    I don't suppose you have a list of all your songs. Someone just challenged me to write out 1000 songs I can remember. I could only write out maybe six Beatle's songs. Apparently since you were on the Columbia Label I could use yours! Hah - something about a tree and the everglades ... or is it evergreen? I got the break In and then promptly couldn't remember - you are walking down a street and there are all these things to sell ... and you need to buy things. Or do you feel like you have to buy things ... you use to have lists - maybe I'll just look it up.

    I first heard Ari on Judy Collins Strangers Again CD, since then he recorded a duet CD with her that is amazing, I've played Silver Skies Blue over and over the past year and a half. He recently opened for Judy in Sellersville in PA the week before Christmas, he was fantastic, love his guitar playing and voice. Natural is his best CD to date, all the songs are so well written and performed, can't believe Ari is not on everyone's playlist he's so good. I've been going through this game Subway Surfers and find that some levels can be very challenging. It took me a few days to get out of one specific level. Download Subway Surfers online game here.

    Your voice tunes the life of lifeless people. You are the only person, who I want to listen till my last breathe. His voice has made your life musical. His voice is soothing to your ears. Is it your voice or you playing some radio from behind. Your voice is soulful. When u sing it feels there is music in the air. Mere dil ke taar baje baar baar when I hear your voice. Your voice really moved me, its so honest and pure. bathroom renovation sunshine coast
