One of my favourite parts of travelling is sitting in the passenger seat and watching scenery grow and melt away to rollicking finger picking like the John Renbourn track I have included “I know my babe”. In the play list I have included some songs for leaving, arriving…songs that lead you out of a small country town and into the possibilities of a clean sky. The endless horizon is liberating and also confronting as you attempt to define yourself not by your normal surroundings but by the tired reflection in the car window and thoughts rattling round. When everything else is changing the familiar sounds of your favourite records are home.
